Reordering checks is relatively easy, especially if you are reordering from your bank or credit union, which already has your account information. However, as long as you have your account number and routing number, you can order from any of the check-printing companies available online. These companies offer a variety of check designs at a lower cost than what some financial institutions charge.
Go to your bank or credit union's website and log in with your account information. Most financial institutions have a tab that you can click on to reorder checks. If you are using a company that prints checks online, go to that website and choose whether you are ordering personal or business checks.
Choose a check design and decide whether you want one-part checks or duplicates. Duplicates provide a carbon images of your checks and cost extra. You will then be prompted to choose how many boxes you want to buy. Some of the check-printing companies will provide discounts for multiple boxes.
Fill in your name, address and telephone number as you would like them to appear on your checks. The website may also have different fonts to choose from, but there may be an additional charge.
Find the routing number and account number on one of your current checks. The routing number is the first set of nine numbers on the bottom of the check. Your account number comes after it. Type the routing number and account number in the appropriate fields on the online form.
Choose your shipping rate. If you need your checks right away, the check-printing companies will request a rush on your order and you will have to pay additional charges. If you can wait several weeks on your checks, choose standard delivery for the best savings.
Pay for your order. Your bank or credit union, and some check-printing companies, can deduct the cost from your checking account, or you can choose to pay by debit or credit card.
