Check Printer CheckPlusCFO automates the manual work associated with the check printing process by printing your checks on blank security check paper.

Once printed, these checks go through a decollator to separate the copies and the carbon paper. Next, they go through another machine that will trim, burst and sign the checks and, as a final operation, they are folded, stuffed in envelopes, stamped and mailed. Check Printer CheckPlusCFO eliminates all these inefficient, costly and time consuming steps.
