Secure Online Ordering!

Welcome to Artistic Checks' new online ordering system, otherwise known as e-commerce. We have updated our system to better serve our online customers. Now you can place an order for any of Artistic's products right from your home computer. You no longer have to fill out an order form, attach voided check and deposit slip, and place a stamp on an envelope to get checks. This new process helps speed up delivery time, and makes the whole process more convenient for the consumer.

We understand that providing your checking account details and credit card information online can cause concern. Protecting your personal and financial details is a responsibility we take very seriously. To maintain the integrity of information exchanged through our online order system, we use Secure Sockets Layer technology (SSL).

SSL encrypts your order information in a manner that can be decoded only by Artistic Checks. At the minimum, secure sockets use 40-bit encryption. This means the data you submit is scrambled in one of over 1 TRILLION possible combinations. Only our company has the key to determine which combination is used and, therefore, can read the information you send online.

You can verify that you are accessing a secure server, both on Artistic Checks' site and others, in a couple of ways. If you see an unbroken key (in Netscape) or a closed lock (in Explorer) in the lower left corner of your browser when you access the server, SSL is active. You can also check the URL line of your browser - when accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."

Think of how often you have left the check on a restaurant's table. Many times your name, credit card number and expiration date are in plain view. When ordering Artistic Checks online, however, you can rest assured the information you transmit is seen only by us.
