Where do the perforations appear on the pre perforated paper options?
LetterStream has many different types of pre-perforated paper (for checks, coupon booklets and sheets, statements, etc.) This help topic is specific to the pre-perforated options for coupons and statements only.
LetterStream has two options of pre-perforated paper to choose from for your statement and coupon mailings (Coupon Statements and 1/3 Perf). In order to know which option best fits your need, we need to determine which perforation your statement is formatted for.
In your LetterStream account, you have access to a tool called the "Pre-Flight" tool. This allows you to upload a document to see where the perforations land according to the format of your statement or coupon. To use this tool, you can follow these simple instructions:
1. Log into your LetterStream account and click the "My Account" tab at the top

3. Browse for the PDF you want to check and attach it
4. Click the "Do Pre-Flight" button, this will generate a PDF
If the PDF did not automatically pop up, locate the download link within your browser and open it.
