Check Gallery Review

02 July 2012 | Review | Tags:

Check Gallery prides itself on being a little bit different to its competitors. It claims to be the number one Earth-friendly check printer in the United States. All checks printed by the company used vegetable-based ink and all check paper is recycled. Check Gallery also claims to absorb the cost of their environmentally friendly printing strategy so that their customers are not forced to pay extra.

The company offers a range of options including checkbook covers, address labels, contact cards and personal bank checks. In addition, their range of checks has designs inspired by nature so you can admire the craftsmanship of each check as you use it. In modern corporate America, showing that your business is ‘green’ in some way is a major selling point so Check Gallery hopes that companies use their services for this reason.

    Watch out for their website. Separate space for “shipping” and “handling.” And no page showing what you’re actually paying for until its too late. I ended up unknowingly paying for “handling,” almost as much as the checks themselves.

    Watch out if you use a Sunday paper coupon. I ordered 2 boxes of checks and paid $10.95, including $4 for handling. I got my checks, then a bill for additional $27.85, $6.90 of which was for handling. I called, waited 25 to speak to a rep who told me the coupon was w for first time customers only; and I had ordered 2 boxes of checks from them on 4/16/1997! I requested a copy of the invoice from 1997 and was told that they don’t keep that record, but they do keep a record that I did ordered the checks. I asked to returned the checks but was told I can’t do that because the checks were already printed. The rep eventually offered to discount the cost 25%. I acquiesced mainly to avoid a stroke since I knew my blood pressure was rapidly rising, and paid another $20.89. I think this is terribly unfair. Terrible business practice. Will NEVER patronize The Check Gallery again.

    I ordered from ‘4checks’ co.from the Sunday newspaper. There was nothing in the ad to indicate it was in any way affiliated with a company that I had ordered from before. I got a call from a VERY aggressive person telling me they were a affiliated with 16 separate check companies. She was insistent that I give her checking info for additional billing of $60. I told her that info would be known to the processor of my order and hung up the phone. I am now getting threatening letters in the mail.

    Tried to order checks twice by phone when their online ordering site claimed I’d never ordered from them. I’ve been ordering from them for over 20 years. The operators are obviously working from sales scripts. They tried several times to get me to order more than I wanted or needed and insisted on reading their entire script on the subject despite my repeated statements that I did not want to order 4 boxes of checks.

    At the end, they had tacked on expensive services and fees that I did not want or need. I had to repeat myself several times that I did not want the extra services at all.

    They even tried to charge me 1.99 for each check register. I get those free at my bank.

    Considering how many people are dropping checks in favor of check cards, online payment, and other methods, Check Gallery is foolish to antagonize their existing customers.

    This was my last order from them. I’m ordering through my bank from now on.
