    Sorry for ALL the questions today! My business is really growing so I'm suddenly thinking of lots of things. Is there a way to order checks with the Pampered Chef logo on them? I opened a seperate checking account from my personal one to use just for Pampered Chef and I'd love to have logo checks to go with it. I didn't see them on Merrill.

    I just had some printed with vista. They were "free". I got the ones with the money spread out on the front. Haven't used them yet b/c I'm still using up the freebies I got when I opened my account almost 3 years ago. Hopeful they'll get some biz once I start using them.

    RATS!! I was thinking of getting some from Vista. I can't use the logo if I go that route, right? At least I can put the company name on, I hope. I wonder if I could leave out my street address to have more space.
    Something like
    Name
    Independent Consultant
    The Pampered Chef
    Phone Number

    That's right - can't use the logo if you use VistaPrint. And don't forget to use the registered trademark symbol (®) after TPC.

    Oh my!!! Oops....So sorry! Holly is totally right....it was a brain fart on this end. I seriously am laughing a little too hard here though....On my way to remove and repost! Oh, but I got to say Becky....wouldn't it be amusing if I left it....would love to hear the helpful suggestions on posting properly. = ) Think Becky D is getting too wise to my sense of humor and mischievious personality.

    That probably depends on how strict your financial institution is about personal vs. business accounts. Strictly speaking, mentioning a business name (PC) on checks should be use only on business accounts. And those usually have higher fees, etc.

    I told my bank rep. I was opening a PC account and she let me do the personal checking. I didn't have PC on my checks from them, but don't remember being told I couldn't. Visita had a spot on the right side in the middle where you could add a fav. quote or saying--I added my website. :)

    My banker in me makes me feel the need to respond. Does anyone actually have a business account for pampered chef? Because most banks would not be able to allow you to open a PC business account. For it to qualify as a business it usually either needs corporate resolution papers or at least a DBA(doing business as). And since we are all working as ourselves under PC a business account isn't logical. My extra account is personal. I can't even add Pampered Chef to the account. I could possibly however add something to my checks as that part isn't as strict. But the question about PC added to your checks I think was related to PC policies not bank policies. Because I also thought I read or heard something that it was against policy to have PC on checks or things of that nature.





    Sarah on a side note: if you are so busy at work you can't get time off how do you have time to post all these threads here!!!?????;););):D:p

    What are you doing on Sundays then???? I think you should try harder to get the time off for your friends wedding. I'd say conference too but the wedding is more important.

  20. I just opened up a bank account with Bank of America, and I opened it up as a business account - they said they opened up as a Sole Proprieter so I didn't need an EIN # or anything else - they just used my ss#, which they would have done anyway.

    I had a problem with my old bank taking money out of my TPC account to pay for something else, even after I explained it wasn't really my money - so I wanted out of being a personal account so they couldn't do that again. Oh - and I changed banks.
