I mailed a cheque to my venue with my contract and the cheque was for a $2000 deposit! I used a personal cheque instead of a having a bank issued draft. The reason I did this is because a bank issued draft is pretty much like cash and I felt more comfortable sending a personal cheque which I knew would not be possible to cash if it fell into the wrong hands.

I’ve mailed almost all of my payments to vendors. Don’t worry about it!

I send personal checks through the mail all the time so I didnt have an issue mailing our venue contract and check in. If you do decide to go with a bank check, they normally charge you for them so be prepared for that (normally only like $5). You should be able to mail it in a standard envelope. Also, if the contract doesnt already have her signature on it (our photographer signed our contract before giving it to us), you’ll definitely want her to sign it and send it back to you.

I wouldn’t worry too much as long as it is not cash or a bank draft that is basically cash, but I would include two copies that you have signed and ask one to be mailed back to you when they have signed it.  Just in case!

I would make a copy of both the check and the signed contract. Then I would send them via certified mail. Ask for another copy of the contract once the vendor signs it.

To go along with what Plantains said, putting a stop payment on a bank check is alot more of a hassle than putting a stop payment on a personal check, in the event your envelope gets lost or stolen.
