Please place your order well in advance of the specific date that you want to receive your Gift Checks. (See Section 6 of the Order Form; Arrival date). It is very important that you provide a specific date that you would like to receive your Gift Checks.
Once we receive your Order Form and payment, it could take up to 10 days to process, print and ship your order.
For faster service, we recommend sending your Order Form and payment via an overnight shipping service (i.e., FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc.). There is also a space on the Order Form for your overnight shipping service account number (See Section 6; In a hurry? of the Order Form) that would enable us to express ship your order and save about 5 days.
No, we must receive your Order Form along with your payment before processing, printing and shipping your Gift Checks.
There is no limit on the number of Gift Checks you can order. We recommend that companies order extra Gift Checks with their initial order. This avoids having to place an emergency order to meet any extra requirements you may have. You can always return unused Gift Checks for a full refund of the face value.
Turkeys typically cost about $1.00-$1.50 per pound. You can estimate 1 to 1.5 pounds of turkey per person, including leftovers. For example, if you are serving 11 people (the average size of a typical family’s holiday gathering), we recommend a turkey between 10-16 pounds. The suggested Gift Check value for this turkey would be $20.00. However, you may order Gift Checks in any dollar denomination you desire, up to $50.
Check our Denomination Selection Chart for assistance.
Certainly. There are three separate lines on the Order Form (Section 1) for you to fill in the number of checks you want and the dollar amounts. You can vary the value to meet your specific needs. For example, you may order a quantity of $15 checks, a quantity of $20 checks and a quantity of $30 checks.
Some companies prefer to personalize their “Blank” Gift Checks by writing an employee’s name on each Gift Check. Other companies prefer Payable to Bearer” as turnover may occur prior to distribution of the Gift Checks, or the employee may not be the one who does the household’s shopping.
Certainly. If you choose to have the checks personalized with individual recipient names, there is an additional charge of 10-cents per check added to the standard $0.90 per-check service charge. That means your total service charge for each personalized check is $1.00.
To minimize the potential for error, we require that you submit your recipient name list in an electronic format (Microsoft Word or Excel) via e-mail or on a CD, along with a hard copy list for verification. Please be sure to identify your company name on all lists or files provided. Do not include titles, departments, etc. All names must be 25 characters or less, including punctuation and spaces, and must be on one line. Names will appear on Gift Checks exactly as submitted.
The $0.90 per-check service charge covers our administrative costs, check printing, bank clearing fees, advertising, shipping and other costs of implementing the Holiday Gift Check Program.
Because we are exchanging even amounts of money, discounts on the face value of the Gift Checks are not available. If you are ordering a large quantity of Gift Checks, please contact us to discuss a discounted service charge.

Please include a copy of the invoice when you send your payment. In any case, we must receive your Order Form and payment before printing or shipping the Gift Checks.
If the recipient has a $15 Gift Check and the cost of the turkey is $18, the recipient would pay the difference. If the cost of the turkey is only $10, the remaining $5 can go toward the purchase of other groceries.
In the unlikely event that this occurs, we suggest that the recipient ask the store’s Meat Manager for the location of turkey or ham products. They could also try another store in their area. Virtually all major supermarket and food retailers carry turkey or ham products.
Losing a Gift Check is basically the same as losing a personal check made out to a second party. Anyone who finds this check becomes the bearer and could use it.
If a recipient has an expired Gift Check, he/she simply returns it to us using the address at the top of the Gift Check and must include his/her name and address printed clearly, along with the original expired Gift Check. A new Gift Check will be issued with an extended expiration date and mailed to the address provided.
If you are in a hurry, there is also a space provided in Section 6 of the Order Form for your overnight shipping account number (FedEx or UPS). Once we receive your Order Form and payment, these orders will be expedited and processed. Remember to always specify an exact date that you would like to receive your Gift Checks.
Absolutely, if you provide us with your overnight shipping account number we can accommodate your shipping needs.
Unused Gift Checks may be returned for a full refund of the face value for up to a year from the date of issue.
