The Current Check Company


And the Origin of Check Printing

The humble check has its origin in the ancient banking system. Bankers would issue orders on request of their customers to pay money to specified payees. These orders were referred to as a bill of exchange. The purpose of these bills of exchange was to lessen the need to carry around large amounts of cash, which is bad enough today, but in those times “cash” was gold, so any significant amount would be quite heavy.

The same reason for checks exists today: convenience and security. The Current Check Company was founded in 1986 in Colorado Springs, Colorado to continue the ancient tradition of check printing.

Of course the check printing industry has advanced significantly since the days of the “bill of exchange” and check supply companies in the 21st century, such as Checks Unlimited (formerly Current Checks) and 4 Checks have developed checks in a fantastic array of styles and designs.

If you can think of it, they probably have put it on a check background image and you know what? If they haven’t thought of it, you can send in your own photo and get a fully legal for exchange with all the latest security, image check of our own design!

I wonder what kind of reaction a check with the owner’s favorite pet pictured on it would have brought in the Persian Empire :)

As well as the styling of checks, these printing companies offer many complementary products which include: address labels, checkbook covers (yes in many choices of styles and fabrics), computer checks, and even identity theft protection products.
