Standard and Custom Logo Information

spacer spacer
Add a professional look to your checks.  We offer a variety of standard logos at no charge, as well as the option for you to provide artwork for a custom logo.  There is a one-time $25.00 set-up charge for custom logos; there is no charge for using your custom logo on reorders or for use on multiple bank accounts.

Click on the links to the right to view the standard no charge logos.  Mark the order form with the logo number of your choice.  If you wish to submit artwork for a custom logo, please follow the instructions below.

Guidelines for submitting a custom logo:

You can submit artwork in either paper form or in electronic form. We do not do logo design work; we simply apply your existing graphic to your check order. The final reproduction will only be as good as the original we receive so please use the following guidelines and instructions for submitting your artwork to ensure the highest quality.  Note: graphics such as .gif and .jpg files taken from a web site will not print with acceptable results.  We DO NOT accept .gif or .jpg files. Also we cannot use word processing documents with embedded graphics, such as a Word document (.doc).  Please send the original graphics file in a format as described below instead.

We print in black ink only on security screened/treated paper with a colored background. If you submit a logo with multiple colors we will convert it to black/white.

Keep in mind that there is limited space on the check form and that we must position it within the area designated by your software package for the name/address. We try to work within a box size of 3" wide x 3/4" tall, so that the check can fit into a double window envelope. The window size is 3-1/2" x 1" but you need to allow for some float within the envelope. Unless otherwise instructed, we will re-size your logo to fit into this area. Note that if we have to resize the logo significantly, there will be some loss of sharpness/detail, or pixelation of type.

If your logo consists of just a graphic (i.e. no name/address information), we will set the type for the name/address and position it to the right of the logo, or under the logo in the case of a wide but short logo. We use standard Windows NT fonts; we do not attempt to match fonts or spacing to any artwork provided. Upon request, we can use any of the standard Windows NT fonts for the name/address. Please call to make sure that we do, in fact, have the requested font in our system.

If specific fonts, spacing, kerning, or leading is integral to the design of your logo, you must include the type as part of the artwork. For copyright reasons we cannot accept font files (.ttf files) from our customers.

When submitting artwork on paper, send a good clean sharp black on white image approximately the size of the final image. Do not send excessively large images; we will have to re-size the image and detail is lost whenever an image is re-sized. Logos containing fine screens do not reproduce well from a paper original, especially if we have to re-size it. We cannot accept a fax of your logo; the quality is too poor.

When submitting artwork electronically, for best results send an image approximately the size as described above. We use Photoshop on a PC, not a Mac. The file should be a grayscale TIFF (.tif) or bitmap (.bmp) file, with a resolution of 600 dpi. DO NOT send a .jpg or .gif file from your web site, or a word processing document with an embedded graphic (such as a Word file); the 72 dpi quality is not acceptable. We DO NOT accept such files. Period. E-mail the file to logos@bestchecks.com. Be sure to include your name/phone number. PLEASE BE SURE to mark the order form to indicate that the logo is being sent via e-mail.

There is a $25.00 one-time logo set-up charge. There is no logo charge for reorders or for using the logo on multiple bank accounts (orders).
