How do I check the status of my order?

To check the status of your order call 800-472-2289 and ask to speak to a Customer Account Services Representative.

I am re-ordering checks, but I have some changes. What do I need to do?

Simply fill out the order form and check the box marked “Repeat with Changes.” Attach a copy of your check (marked “VOID”) and indicate the changes you would like directly on the voided check.

What types of check security features do your checks have?

All our checks include a rigorous fraud deterrence system that exceeds industry guidelines. Our checks utilize security features such as chemically sensitive paper and erasure protection to name just two.

What colors can I choose from for my checks?

Our checks come in 7 different standard colors. All colors can be viewed on our web site.

To be sure you are comfortable with your selection, check the PMS color specs as indicated.

You can have up to 6 lines of text. All text is printed in CAPS in black ink. You do not have to use all 6 lines.

How many signature lines can I include on my check?

You can have one or two signature lines on your check. You can also include signature line titles (Text Over Signature) above each if you choose. These are pre-printed lines of text that can be added to your checks.

What if I am re-ordering checks - do I still have to include a voided check?

All orders must be accompanied by a check marked "VOID." This helps ensure that bank information and check style are reproduced exactly to your specifications.

What's Voucher Imprint Information?

The voucher of your check is the part above and below the check. You can put your company name on the voucher or any other line of text that you choose. The voucher imprint information will be printed on both the top voucher (above the check) and the bottom voucher (below the check). Voucher imprint text is printed in 11pt bold.

Can I imprint on the envelope?

The envelope that is compatible with Amicus Accounting Check #880929 is a plain double-window envelope. There is no ability or need to imprint on this envelope. With the double-window option, you simply need to slip the check inside and seal.

Check Numbering

When I print checks I put them face down in the printer, can you number my checks so they will work in my printer?

Yes. Simply select "Face Down" on the order form and we will reverse the numbering for you. If you put your checks in your printer face up, then you need standard numbering – select "Face Up" on your order form.
