âControlScanâs recognition of our internet safety policies is very important to us as a company,â Andy Crim, Carousel Checks president, said. âAfter all, people can be a little apprehensive about ordering their checks online. Theyâre providing us with their most sensitive information so that we can print their checks. Seeing the ControlScan logo on our website will give many customers increased confidence in ordering checks online.â
Carousel Checks was founded over 40 years ago by Crimâs parents as a regular check printing company for banks around the country. When the internet made custom printing of checks a reality for many consumers, Carousel was one of the first companies to pursue the consumer end of the checks business.
Crim said that customers return to order more checks from CarouselChecks.com because the company prides itself on the three most important aspects of internet commerce: Security, Speed and Cost.
âWe realize that when people order checks, theyâre probably a day or two away from running out,â Crim said. âSo we specialize in being able to turn around check orders quickly, affordably and with the utmost of security.â
