Contract/ Non-Contract Applicable Rates of Interest for Credit 

Each state has their own statutory rates of interest creditors may charge depending upon the circumstances. Check our chart for  state-specific rates.


Printing Industry Credit Bureau got it right...  

Our vast array of resources,  knowledge, and experience are here to protect Printers from losses associated with criminal activities such as described in the below fraud alert from the US post Office. 

This is the same report alert that has been announced for so many months on PICB Credit Tips Newsletter.

 The US Post Office,  US Law Enforcement and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are working to get the responsible parties behind bars.

 Meanwhile... You should be careful!

If you are the victim or know of a potential victim contact the Postal Inspector Matt Schmitz at

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter please contact Andrea Schlack at or 847- 265-0400.

"Diligence is the mother of good luck."
