Check printing can be costly, especially if you're getting specialty checks. Often, the check printing company that's offered through your bank may not be the cheapest place to get your checks printed. For example, a box of checks offered through a company associated with your bank could cost around $20 (Clarke American, one box of 150 duplicate checks). If you're a new customer, that same box of checks could be less than $10, including shipping, at a different non-affiliated company such as Artistic Checks or The Check Gallery. That's a 50% difference – and the rates can change even more with more boxes of checks ordered. For personal check printing, it's important to shop around before deciding on which check company will fill your check order.
