    PROS / Deluxe has a wide array of ordering options for business checks.

    CONS / The essential design themes are limited in quantity.

    VERDICT / Deluxe offers a good combination of features, attractive designs and security features that cannot be beat.

    Deluxe deserves praise for its thorough online check ordering services in the business field. With this service, you get security features along with 80 personal check designs. It is easy to find a check design to express your style, but there are some limits to how much variety you can find within each point of interest.


    Essential themes like animation and sports are choices when you order personal checks, but there are not many options under each category. There are a few standard options, but then the lists end, which does not make an impressive lineup for a site with so many other tools for your personal photo checks.

    Customization options include logo designs, stylish fonts and monograms. You can even choose background images to show off your alma mater's mascot with pride. However, you cannot choose these design features until you enter your bank account information. This is frustrating because you cannot shop until you have disclosed your personal information, including your bank account number.

    Deluxe offers ways to order business checks online that meet your accounting and payroll needs. Computer checks are compatible with QuickBooks, Peachtree, Quicken and other check software. These professional-looking checks work well for paying large quantities of bills quickly and printing out payroll checks. Customization options are also available so that you can add your company logo for a stylish touch.

    The custom checks you order from Deluxe provide more safety features than you get with checks from your bank. When you order checks online, you get security specifications recommended by the CPSA, an agency that establishes security standards for members of the check-printing industry. Checks that meet the CPSA standards have a padlock icon that represents compliance.

    When ordering checks online for your business, you will appreciate this company's high-security computer checks. The high-security checks are above industry standards and include heat-sensitive ink, visible embedded fibers, chemical alteration detection and a watermark. We are impressed with the safety hologram that prevents reproduction with a copy machine or laser printer.

    To contact the company for help and support, you can use the toll-free telephone number found on its website. You can also contact the company using the live chat service. However, when using the chat service, we found that instead of answering questions, agents directed us back to the website. In addition, it is not possible to get pricing questions answered.


    Deluxe has a large assortment of check personalization options, such as logo designs and custom fonts, even though its essential themes are limited. In addition, it offers business check features that fulfill accounting responsibilities. We are impressed with its offerings for professional check users.
