In my view, and those of the leaders in business I surround myself with, custom business checks are a must. When I get together with the business leaders in my area, we often talk about ways that we can look more professional. We enjoy mentoring and coaching people that are new in the business world make great decisions on moving their business forward. The one item that I like to bring up to new people in business is their professional look.
When I first started in business, I had your run of the mill checks, not custom business checks. You know, the ones that came with your bank account when you set it up. Plain old blue checks, with a generic font on the check. Nothing about the checks screamed, “Hey I am a professional business man over here!” I needed to do something, and it had to be done fast.
I needed to find a way of making my business seem professional on all levels. The first thing I did was to get a buddy of mine to design my logo so that it can be used in every application. He did a phenomenal job. He was able to make the logo so that I was able to upload it to a company that could print the custom business checks that I was looking for.
Now, when you do this, make sure everything is correct on your custom business checks. Also, make sure your design not only looks professional, but that it pops and stands out. I know you are just using the check to pay for something that is needed or a vendor, but it should still pop and say that you are a professional at what you do.
When I started getting custom business checks, I paid a lot of money for them. I did not search out deals that could be found. I just went with the first company that I found. When it came time to re-order, I started thinking a lot more wisely. I started looking at my bottom line and what I could do to make it better.
I found that if you take a few minutes, you can find some amazing deals on getting your custom business checks. The best deal that I found has been used by many of my business associates to cut their costs in half. A smart business professional always looks for ways to add to their bottom line.
So the biggest question you young and old business professionals have to ask is “How will my custom business checks look?” Take it from me, the more professional your business is, the more professional the items that you use in business should look as well. Continue to make your business more professional every single day and strive for greatness.
