Direct Checks Unlimited
As one of the nation's leading direct-to-consumer check suppliers, Direct Checks Unlimited sells personal checks, a complete line of business checks and check-related products to consumers through brands like Checks Unlimited, Designer Checks, Checks.com, Artistic Checks and the Styles Check Company.
The company reported total revenues of $1.77 billion in 2015, up from $1.67 billion. Net income was $218.6 million.
“Our team delivered another strong year of financial results - growing revenue for the sixth consecutive year and growing cash flow from operations for the seventh consecutive year,” said Lee Schram, CEO of Deluxe. “Throughout 2015 we made substantial progress on our transformation and we further strengthened our marketing solutions and other services product offerings by aggressively expanding our focus and investments into the Financial Services segment where we added comprehensive data analytics and enhanced treasury management solutions and products. In addition, we added even more robust technologies for web-hosting customers and expanded our direct sales channels to expose more small businesses to our extensive assortment of marketing capabilities. Looking into 2016, we expect to continue our track record of growth in revenue, EPS and cash flow from operations and we expect that marketing solutions & other services will account for over one third of our total revenue.”
With a $300 loan and an idea for the first personalized flat-pocket checkbook and holder, W. R. Hotchkiss founded Deluxe in 1915 in St. Paul, MN. The company went on to develop many more innovations, helping beat out the competition and become the industry leader it is today.
Deluxe acquired Wausau Financial Systems in October 2014.
The company offers health insurance, paid vacation and holidays and discounts on checks ordered through Deluxe.
