What makes the perfect presentation cheque?

As a corporately responsible business, you may from time to time engage in charitable fundraising and giving. This activity is a great way to showcase in a non commercial way, the side of your business most people don’t get to see on a daily basis.

Many of those businesses who fundraise regularly, have come to understand that the ceremonial giving of the cheque to the charity is a great opportunity for a press release and photo call for the local media. However handing over a small company cheque doesn’t really have the wow factor credentials needed in a photoshoot. With this in mind, large presentation cheques are frequently used for this “handover” ceremony.

As specialists in large format printing, we create hundreds of presentation cheques for businesses and charitable groups all across the UK. It’s with this experience we understand what works and more importantly what doesn’t.

What makes the perfect presentation cheque?

Bigger is better
A large presentation cheque must be of a reasonable size to be visible within your photoshoots. We’ve tested different finishes and the perfect size based on feedback from our customers is 1200mm x 400mm. While you may require a different sized presentation cheque (and this is no issue at all), we have created a very economical template to work from, which ultimately reduces the costs of your presentation cheques.

We offer two styles of large presentation cheque in Kaizen. One is poster style and the other is a rigid foamex. The poster style presentation cheque is really only suitable for single use, whereas the foamex option is matt laminated and as a result reusable. When writing the value of the cheque and the payee, it is advisable to use a wipeable whiteboard marker. This allows for quick and easy cleaning before storing for future use.

Design matters
Many online printers sell branded bank cheques, however when utilising a large presentation cheque specifically for your business or charity, we suggest branding this using your own logo. This personalisation is a great way to really take ownership of the photoshoot and get your branding into the photo itself.

To make the design process super speedy, we have created a bespoke template that can be used with just the simple inclusion of your own high resolution logo. After ordering for presentation cheque online, simply upload your logo to the Artwork Upload page and we’ll send you a design proof for your review.

Speed of service
We pride ourselves on some of the latest print lead times within the digital printing industry. With many orders being shipped within 24 hours, we can meet almost any deadline. If you are happy enough to collect from the Kaizen office, then we can reduce the lead time even further.

If at anytime you need assistance when ordering your presentation cheque, please do get in contact with our Customer Service team. Or if you want to order directly through our website, we’ll process the order in record time and have it delivered to you asap.

If you do use our presentation cheques for your own promotional activities, we’d love you to share them with us on social media using the hashtag #kaizenprint. We’ll do some cross-promotion ourselves and share your charitable efforts.
