At a recent conference relating to the software and printing of laser checks, an important trend came to light. Many businesses have eliminated their pre-printed forms. By using blank paper and color printers to produce checks, invoices, statements and packing lists, many people believe they are reducing the overall cost of their forms.

However, two things should be considered when comparing the costs of a pre-printed form vs. blank stock:

  1. Using blank paper and expensive color inks or toner increases your print costs quickly. Considering the high cost of color cartridges ($70 – $100 each), laser printed forms can be 43% more expensive than having a custom printed form produced, even in small quantities.
  2. Check Fraud – “Counterfeiting and check fraud have become one of the fastest growing problems affecting our nation’s financial system producing estimated annual losses of $10 billion and rising at an alarming annual rate.” (National Check Fraud Center)

Working with Datacor, Drew & Rogers Inc. can produce 8.5″ x 11″ checks for your company. Your check can be positioned at the top, middle or bottom of the sheet to fit your needs. You have the option to pre-print your MICR number and bank information or you can imprint this information when printing the check.

The conference prompted two questions businesses should ask themselves:

  1. What is your business doing to protect your forms? (Are you susceptible to counterfeiting?)
  2. Can you improve your check security?
