Check printing profit margins remain incredibly high—and a skilled contract negotiator can often discover savings of $500,000 for banks with over 30,000 checking accounts and $1,000,000 or more for banks with 60,000 checking accounts. Jim Schartman, Executive Vice President of Check Printing Contract Consulting, is a leading independent authority on check printing contracts with 37 years of experience. Jim has worked for leading check printing companies in the country and learned where banks can shave margins and find significant savings. As a KBA Endorsed Vendor, CPCC works on behalf of community banks and their check printing vendors to negotiate agreements that build profitable check programs, reduce costs and optimize fee income. CPCC is only paid a percentage of savings—so if they don’t save you money, they don’t get paid.
