Business Checks are an Added Cost to Your Small Business - Try Making Them Yourself!
Starting and managing a small business is no fun chore, especially when it comes to the accounting. There are a few common sense ways that you can help that bottom line.
Business checks can be quite expensive when you use a third party to manage your payroll and payments. Your small business can save money by printing your payments from your desktop.
This option may not be best for all businesses. But if you have the time to manage it yourself, it may be very beneficial. The check blanks can be found at many office stores, and there are some good ones online. Many of them don't need a special software program to manage the process.
There are some pretty high tech programs out there as well. You may decide to check them out as they are needed. Usually, you can download a sample of the program to use for a while, testing it out to see if it is good for your applications.
Printing your own checks will also allow you to create your own design or place your logo on the checks which can serve as a reminder to potential customers.
It will be worth your time to at least check out some of the options that are available. If you haven't looked because you thought they would be too expensive, you might be happily surprised.
