I just opened a new account, what documentation do I need to order checks?

Please have a temporary check (not a deposit slip) in front of you for reference while ordering. Your check information MUST match the records on file at your financial institution. All orders are subject to verification. Please review all information you have entered, double-checking against the information on your existing checks.

Help with a placed/received order

Please email our customer service department via our Contact Us page with any questions or concerns. Our customer service representative will be in touch with you within 24 hours during standard business days.

Why were my checks lighter in color than I expected?

We are required to follow requirements specified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for certain areas and color densities on the checks. This can make certain areas very light and can cause ghosting of the images. We make every effort to keep the checks as brilliant as possible within these standards. These requirements are there so that your bank can read the written information off of your check.

↑ Return to top

May I return an unopened box of checks for a refund or credit?

Because your checks are personalized, we cannot return them to stock. Best Value Checks wants to offer you great savings on bank checks; therefore we can only give refunds for quality issues or if we have made a mistake with bank account information. Best Value Checks is not responsible for customer grammatical errors; please ensure that personalization information is correct before submitting your order. Please email our customer service department via our Contact Us page with any questions or concerns.

Within 24 hours you should receive a confirmation at the e-mail address you provided. If you do not, it is possible that the e-mail address was entered incorrectly or that your order was not received. After 24 hours you can check the status of your order via our Order Status tool.

If you choose Secure Trackable delivery, your checks will be shipped all together. If you selected non-trackable mail, your check boxes will ship individually and could arrive as much as ten days apart. Please note, accessory products will ship separately via the U.S. Postal Service.

The checks I received have different numbers on them than what I submitted with my online order. Are they okay to use?

Many bank changes are updated in our system. Please call your bank to verify any changes in their routing and/or account numbers. If we have made a mistake, we will gladly reprint your checks. Please use our Contact Us page if needed.

↑ Return to top

Can I change/cancel my order online?

Our computer systems automatically route many orders to be produced immediately. Due to the efficiency of our systems, you are not able to make changes or cancel your order after it has been submitted.

  • Securely deliver, via overnight mail or electronically, the required documentation to begin the Fully Managed Recovery process.
  • Work under the authority of your Limited Power of Attorney to deal directly with the Financial Institution and/or 3 credit bureaus.
  • Perform research and fraud remediation on your behalf, as needed, until the fraud has been resolved.
  • Provide 12 months of regular follow-up and one-bureau credit monitoring once the recovery case is completed/closed.
