Identity Checks are guaranteed to work with all banks and financial
Identity meets the strictest requirements of the American National
Standards Institute (ANSI), which all check companies and banks must
Identity Checks have security features to prevent and detect
fraud. The features include: micro-print, which breaks up when a check
is photocopied; watermarks for verification of authenticity and the
lock icon next to the dollar box.
Will I have a problem using checks not produced by my bank?
No. Actually, your bank does not produce the checks it sells you.
Banks take orders and forward them to check printers. The printer produces
the checks and then sends them to the account holder. Identity and anyone
else who prints financial products must adhere to very exact specifications.
The difference is, when you order from Identity, you get much more selection
for much less money.
Can the bank refuse to process my Identity Checks?
Your bank wants you to order its checks so the bank will make a profit
on your purchase. But banks cannot refuse to process your checks regardless
of where you buy them. Identity must adhere to the same specifications
as printers who produce checks for banks. Our checks meet or exceed
all requirements of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
How is Identity able to provide exclusive designs for less than plain
Banks contract with printers, so the markup over cost must be high
enough for the printer and the bank to make a profit. Identity designs
checks specifically for our customers, and we can charge less because
there's no one in the middle marking up prices. In other words, you're
buying your checks directly from the manufacturer.
