4Checks.com describes themselves as one of the country’s most convenient online sources for personal checks and other related items, at nearly half the price you’ll find from traditional banking institutions.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, while it is true that consumers can simply go to the bank that maintains their checking account in order to receive more checks, the reality is that the pricing of those checks can often be higher than what you will find available at outside retailers. In addition, the designs on bank issued checks are often boring, standard, and limited.
4Checks.com says in contrast to the traditional banking institutions, they offer more than 600 different check designs on their website, as well as offering prices that can often be as low as 50% off what you will find at your bank.
When looking through their inventory, customers can go through their categories including Personal Checks, Checkbook Covers, Address Labels, Personal Cards, Accessories, Business Checks, Fraud Protection, Special Offers, and more.
When you go to this website to order your checks, you must have your bank information ready, including the number of your checking account and the routing number where the account is located.
The prices of the products on this website will certainly vary, as it depends on the type of product you are getting, the type of design you may order, and the volume of product you choose to order.
Though the website states repeatedly that their checks can be priced as low as 50% off the price offered from your regular bank, these prices are likely to be for basic designs, not specially customized designs or designs which include licensed characters or logos.
This website does not provide any information regarding a Refund Policy, other than to say that they are willing to offer refunds. If something has occurred with your order that you believe justifies a refund, they do ask that you call their Customer Service team directly. Each case will be dealt with on an individual basis.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-995-9925 or by email at [email protected]
Unfortunately it appears that 4Checks.com does have some vocally unhappy customers out there, who have taken to the internet to share their problems and concerns with others.
Many of these complaints come from dealing with an unhelpful Customer Service center, specifically when a customer was calling because there was a spelling error on the product they had ordered. According to these complaints, all spelling errors were considered customer error, and the company refused to fix or help in any way.
However, on at least one review website there is a response from a 4Checks.com employee that says they had previously worked with a call center that has since been replaced due to Customer Service complaints. This may mean that the company has changed their call center – and their policy on assisting customers with spelling errors – and may be easier to work with in the future.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Customers are always able to order checks through the financial institution where they currently have a checking account, and there are also other independent checking printing websites that are partnered with financial institutions if you are unable to find the product or price that you want from this website.

Placed an order for checks in April. They were supposed to be delivered within 2-3 weeks of order placement. Currently, it is turning into mid-July and I have not received a single check from them. I called them & this is where it gets real interesting. They say they have my order in their system (I paid in April), but the checks were never produced. I asked why not, which is when the so called “customer service” person started to snap at me. She claimed I needed to provide proof I paid them; clearly, this is something they should have on file and at their fingertips. Next, their representative screamed at me and I hung up. Their ad says 100% satisfaction guaranteed - yeah right. Stay well away from this scum, they will rip you off, just like they did me!
