"I ordered my checks through The Bradford Exchange Checks and had no problems at all with my order. The checks arrived early, they were exactly what I ordered and everything was correct. I also saved a lot of money using a coupon code so I am overall very satisfied with my order." - Lisa D., Conway, AR, Yelp
"I am so angry with this place, especially because all of their automated email responses say my satisfaction is important to them, yet no human answers their phones or responds to emails...I've called their customer service number several times to fix a problem with my order, and an automated message tells me they are closed for the holiday. It is a Monday...which doesn't feel like a holiday to me..." - Mindy B., Oak Park, IL, Yelp
"I had a new checking account as of 2 weeks ago and needed to order a couple checkbooks and did not like the options given to me by my bank. I have never used a website to purchase personalized checks before and after reading the other reviews I was a little skeptical of this website. I decided to go with Bradford Exchange Checks anyways and have been very pleased with the results." - ajf12, Viewpoints
"Bradford Exchange Checks miss the mark on providing an effective and professional website as well as their check design. Many of the products looked like we had stepped back in time. For more modern options choose a higher ranked company." - TopConsumerReviews.com
