Once I upload my logo will it be saved on Checksforless.com for future use?

(Back to top)

What are the different logo formats you accept?

We accept common "bitmap" formats - EPS, TIF, JPG, GIF, PSD, BMP, and PNG. We do not recommend using logos in MS Word/Excel/Power Point or Web site images; they are usually low resolution images (less than 300 dpi) for monitor viewing only. These images are not designed for printing.
(Back to top)

What is a bitmap image?

Bitmap images are made up of dots or pixels of color in a grid. All these tiny dots of color come together to form the images you see. Bitmap images are resolution dependant. Resolution refers to the number of pixels in an image and is usually stated in dpi (dots per inch). The typical computer monitor has 72 or 96 pixels per inch, depending on your monitor and screen settings.
(Back to top)

What does dots per inch (DPI) mean?

DPI stands for dots per inch, or the number of dots of ink that fill a linear inch of surface. DPI is used to measure printing resolution -- the higher the dots per inch, the better the resolution and the better the image quality. For example, if an image has a resolution of 300dpi, it means that a square inch of solid color will be filled with about 90,000 (300X300) dots of ink.
(Back to top)

What is the acceptable logo resolution, color and size?

Logo resolution should be at least 600 dots per inch (dpi) or 600 X 600 pixels. The height of the image, in relation to the dpi, should be at least one inch. This will ensure that your image will not lose printing quality if it is scaled to fit the product you have ordered. If the resolution of your logo does not meet these requirements, it may print poorly. If you use a bitmap image, make sure it at least 600 X 600 pixels.
(Back to top)

How do I know my logo meets your resolution requirements?

This can be done in three steps: 1. Note the pixel height and width dimensions of your image. Your graphics design software can help you determine this. (For example: Your image has pixel dimensions of 900 x 1,200 pixels.) 2. Divide the height and width by 600 (For example: After dividing the 900 X 1,200 dimension above by 600 the result is 1.5" x 2".) 3. Compare dimension as arrived at in step 2 with 1.5" x 1.5". If your image dimensions as calculated are 1.5" x 1.5" or larger, your image is good for producing best quality printing, as it exceeds the minimum height of one inch.
(Back to top)

Can Checksforless.com reduce or enlarge the size of my logo?

Logo files cannot be enlarged successfully unless they are of very high resolution (600 dpi or more).
(Back to top)

Can Checksforless.com print my color logo?

Yes, Please contact us for a color logo custom quote.
(Back to top)

What is the cost of a colored logo?

Each logo is different in size, complexity source file, number of colors, etc. Therefore, we work directly with each customer to determine a printing price for colored logos. Please contact our customer service department at 800.245.5775, send Checksforless.com an email or chat with us to get a quote for your custom color logo.
(Back to top)

What do I do if I have multiple images or text in my logo graphic file?

To eliminate the possibility of printing your order with the wrong logo, we cannot process files where multiple images or layers are contained within a single file. Please revise your file using your graphics design software so that only one high-resolution image is included.
(Back to top)

While Checksforless.com is waiting for my logo, can the rest of my order be processed?

We cannot release your Order to Production until the entire order is complete, including receipt of your logo. To ensure that you receive all your products as quickly as possible, please forward us your logo as quickly as you can.
(Back to top)

Can Checksforless.com use my logo from a previous phone or mail-in order so I don’t have to resend the graphic file?

If you placed a phone order with your logo over the past two years, your logo has been automatically saved on Checksforless.com so you don't need to resend the file. To access your logo to place an order on Checksforless.com, you will need to contact customer service at 800.245.5775 or chat with us now.
(Back to top)

Can you print my company logo on my checks?

Yes, we can! We do not charge a logo fee or a set up fee—your logo placement is free. You can send the artwork as a black and white copy, in a .tif, or a .bmp file extension. Please remember that color images and images pulled from the internet may not reproduce well. We also have a complete set of stock logos that you can add to your checks for free.

(Back to top)

Will the colors of my checks match the colors on my screen?

The colors should closely match; however, the colors you see on your screen may vary from the colors of your check due to monitor and browser settings.
(Back to top)

What does “Edit As Group” mean?

When you select to edit your items as a group, you will edit each line with the same font size and font options. The first line of imprint sets the default for the other lines. Editing as a group saves time when you want each line of imprint to look the same.
(Back to top)

How do I adjust my printer setup for printing QuickBooks Compatible forms?

Sometimes checks and deposits don't print the same for all users. This is because each printer pulls the paper a bit differently, therefore, what may line up perfectly for one user may be slightly off for another. QuickBooks allows for you to adjust for this common problem. Please follow the instructions below to adjust your printing to work with your QuickBooks compatible documents: Go to File and click on Printer Setup In the upper-left hand side of the screen click on Form Name then on Check, Deposit or applicable form. If a check, go to the check style: Standard, Voucher or Wallet. On the right-hand side of the screen you will see a column of buttons, starting with OK, click on Align at the bottom. Adjust as much as needed, then print a test on white paper. Align this test with your actual form up to a window to be sure the alignment worked. Adjust as necessary. Select OK to save and OK to leave the setup
