Check Printing Contract Consulting (CPCC) is the country’s leading independent authority on check printing contracts for regional and community banks. Their principal, Jim Schartman, was a top sales performer for one of the country’s largest check printing companies for more than 32 years. At a December, 2014 national sales meeting Jim was described as “perhaps the most honored and successful salesperson in the history of the company.” CPCC builds extremely profitable check programs for their clients, reducing costs and optimizing fee income. Jim founded CPCC in early 2015. Since then, more than 250 institutions have chosen CPCC to negotiate their check printing agreement. Their clients dramatically increase fee income WITHOUT increasing fees.
The team at CPCC works on behalf of community banks in an impartial role of helping them negotiate the best possible check printing contract from whichever vendor they prefer, typically Deluxe or Harland Clarke/Vericast. They leverage over 45 years of exclusive check printing experience to gain outstanding financial incentives and concessions on the bank’s behalf. The vast majority of their clients choose to stay with their current vendor and enjoy net savings of 40% or more.
On average, CPCC is able to negotiate savings of $500,000 over five years for community banks with 30,000 checking accounts. For banks with 60,000 checking accounts, typical five-year savings are $1,000,000 or more.
