Information Outsource provides reliable and secure check printing and mailing services. In addition to traditional business checks, we process rebate checks, reward checks and payroll checks.
Our dedicated team makes data security a top priority and we are SOC II Type 2 certified. You can trust Information Outsource to manage your business’s sensitive information as we use a multi-level security process using current techniques in data protection.
We employ the latest in check printing security features in our check stock to protect your business against forgery, tampering or counterfeiting. These include fluorescing fibers, watermarks, and thermographic ink.
Fluorescent security fibers are embedded in the paper during manufacturing and are non-reproducible. They will fluoresce (shine red, green, or blue) under ultraviolet light.
Watermarks can be seen on the front and back of the check when held up to a light. They are pressed into the paper during manufacturing. Copiers and scanners cannot duplicate a watermark.
Thermographic ink uses heat to create raised letters or images. It not only enhances the professional look of the check but adds another level of security.
In addition to the check itself, we use security features on envelopes including security tint (printing a pattern on the envelope’s interior to make the contents unreadable) and clearance in the window areas.
Methods to Cut Waste and Save You Money
Our check printing process allows checks to be numbered dynamically along with variable customer information. This cuts down on waste versus having to pre-print check numbers on all stock separately and then throw away any spoilage. We are able to provide a check register as part of this process, so you can track numbering for accounting purposes.
We also have the ability to manage multiple brands within an organization, using the same check shell and incorporating a variable logo and account information that can be printed “on the fly.” This avoids have excess inventory since checks are printed on demand.
When it comes to mailing checks, our constant interaction with the United States Postal Service enables us to keep our mailing process current with all postal regulations and manage this process from start to finish on your behalf. We presort all mail to the lowest automatable presort rate, maximizing discounts and passing this savings along to you.
Check Printing Utilizing MICR Ink
MICR, short for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition, is a vital part of check printing and bank compliance. It allows the data in the scanline (MICR line) to be captured magnetically and/or optically. The scanline contains information such as the bank routing number, account number and check serial number. Banks rely on this information to process checks and the MICR line must be printed with magnetic ink, per the Federal Reserve.
We understand scanline compliance, clearance and font adherence. Our knowledge of bank testing procedures will ensure your checks follow all regulations.
Real Estate & Property Management
Whether you are mailing statements, letters, refund checks or past due notices, we are able to assist in the management of your business. Many of our real estate and property management clients rely on us to manage multiple brands and multiple lines of communication on their behalf.
