A Little Bit About Us and Where We Came From:
Print & Cheques Now Inc (Formerly Cheques Now / Cheques Direct Ltd) is a family-owned and -operated business with over 30 years of cheque manufacturing experience. The owners Tom & Irene Gilchrist first started producing cheques back when One-Write cheques were common. They and their 5 sons would spend hours upon hours glueing them together for their small business clients.
Their business grew over the next 28 years from working out of their home office with just the two of them to having over 20 employees and over 16,000 sq ft of space. They expanded their company and grew with their clients as they began to offer a broader range of print services, including stationary items (letterhead, envelopes) and multi-part printed forms (invoices, PO’s, work orders, et cetera)
Tom and Irene sold their original print shop on November 1st 2006. And since that time they have been focused solely on cheque manufacturing and have been joined by two of their five sons Ryan & Jon Gilchrist who are now taking an active role in the day to day operations of the company.
As a small family run business we pride ourselves on customer service and strive hard to earn our clients repeat business. We are once again beginning to branch out from just manufacturing cheques to adding a broader range of print services to service our clients ever changing needs. Whether you need business cards, stationary items or multi part forms for your company we strive to offer you better service with lower prices wherever possible.
We moved our shop in June of 2010 from just under 1,800 sq ft to nearly 6,000 sq ft and are in the midst of installing several web presses, collators and other much needed print machinery.
We thank you for your business and for your support, and look forward to doing business with you over the many years to come.
Tom, Irene, Jon & Ryan Gilchrist
At Print & Cheques Now (Formerly Cheques Now / Cheques Direct Ltd) we realize you have many options when choosing a cheque supplier. Whether you’re using manual cheques or laser cheques we offer a wide array of available cheque colors for you to choose from.
Our cheque stock offers the highest level of security features available anywhere in Canada. We have higher security than The National Bank Cheque Supplier, and all other printers.
We also realize that you may have stumbled onto us at random and may never have heard about us. That is why we post testimonials from some of our clients. Our clients range from small business ordering only 200 manual cheques at a time to large Oil & Gas companies who order thousands of laser cheques quarterly. We supply towns, a university and hundred of other businesses from Victoria to St. Johns.
In addition to offering the highest security manual cheques and laser cheques in Canada we also pride ourselves on offering a very strong price match guarantee. We will match your current cheque suppliers’ price and then ship you 50% more manual cheques or 25% more laser cheques every single time you order cheques from us.
Plus you can also earn AIR MILES® reward miles on every order.
We also realize that it’s pretty darn important to you that the cheques you buy clear the bank. That’s why we invested over $40,000 in the necessary software and equipment so that we are now one of only 20 printers in all of Canada that are self-accredited through the Canadian Payments Associations “Cheque Printer Self Accreditation Program” which allows us to manufacture business cheques without our clients needing to submit samples to their banks for testing.
Trying to make the ordering process easier for you as a client and potential customer is also important to us, which is why we have created editable PDF order forms for both manual cheques and computer cheques. It allows you to fill the form in right on your computer and then email or print and fax your cheque orders right to us. We have also added our online ordering and cheque proofing so you can now order online and view the proof before we print.
We also guarantee our laser cheques to be 100% compatible with all software programs out there including Simply Accounting, QuickBooks, Peachtree, ACCPAC, MYOB, and all others. Whether you’re printing top, middle, or bottom cheques we can help. We also can work with you and your software supplier if you’re not meeting the CPA guidelines.
Buying cheques isn’t a major decision for most businesses, it’s not a major expense, but your decision to use us is very important to our growth. If you ever have any suggestions that might improve how we do business please don’t hesitate to contact us.
