How To Order Checks From Chase
You can also order both personal and business checks by visiting a Chase branch. By the way, if you’re a Chase Bank customer, you might want to check out the Chase Sapphire Preferred since it is now offering a new high offer of 60,000 points (worth $50 in travel) after spending $4,000 in the first three months after account opening! Find out more here.
Ordering personal checks from Chase
Log-in to your Chase account and then click on “Customer Center.”
Then find the section called “Checking / Savings Account Services” and click on “Order checks or deposit slips.”
You’ll then be taken to a screen where you can select your bank account that you want to order checks with.
Make sure that your pop-up blocker or ad-blocker is disabled because a pop-up window needs to come up.
From this window you’ll be able to select the new checks that you’d like to order and personalize those checks if you wish.
Here are examples of check prices as of August 2018. Note that depending on the design that you go with, the prices could fluctuate.
Also, there are some types of Chase accounts that could offer free checks or discounted checks. For example, Chase Private Client offers free personal checks (and no fees for counter checks, money orders or cashier’s checks).

Symbol / Monogram
A symbol or monogram (also known as a woodcut), may be added to accent the look of your checks. These symbols appear in the upper-left hand corner.
A background symbol may be chosen to enhance the look of your checks. These background symbols will appear as a shadow in the background.
Choose your favorite type style for your personalized information.
The message (or byline) adds extra character to your checks and is printed above the signature line.
You might be wondering what kind of security features your checks comes with.

Padlock Icon Personalized Microprint

You’ll also be able to oder additional products like leather checkbook covers, labels, debit card covers, debit card registers, name and address stamps, and checkbook registers.
When you place an order for checks, a third-party entity authorized to act as an ACH Originator makes a deduction from your account for the total amount, including any additional fees for expedited delivery, processing, and services.
This will appear on your bank account as an “ACH” fee.
Allow 10-14 days for production and standard delivery.
If you want your checks sooner, there are express delivery options available for most products. Orders with expedited delivery methods placed later in the day may be produced and shipped the next day.
Ordering business checks from Chase
You can order checks on the Deluxe website or by calling 1-888-560-3939.
Make sure you know your routing/transit and account numbers as you’ll need to supply those.
The ordering process on the Deluxe website is very similar to what is above — you can choose the same type of customized options.
You can also order both personal and business checks by visiting a Chase branch.
Chase Counter checks
If you need Chase counter checks (temporary checks) it will only cost you $2 per page if you have a Chase Total Checking Account (or equivalent).
Each blank page consists of three personal checks that Chase prints out on the spot. Just to be on the safe side, you might want to call up the branch before you to visit them just to make sure that they have counter checks available. If they do, don’t forget to bring your ID and possibly a debit card with you to the branch so they can look up your account easier.
Also remember that some merchants don’t like to accept counter checks due to fraud concerns. You can always inquire with the merchant about that beforehand.
Note: counter checks are different from Cashier’s Checks which are $8.

Changing your address
You can change the address on your checks as part of the ordering process, but this doesn’t change your address in the Chase system.
So you’ll need to make sure to change your address directly with Chase which you can do at 1-800-935-9935 or by visiting a Chase branch so they can update your address.

Ordering Chase checks and check books isn’t difficult at all and it can be done online, over the phone, or in-branch. If you’re not ordering directly through Chase, be sure to take down your routing number and account number so that you can fill out the forms properly.
