Check presenters are the trays or folders restaurants use to present customers with their bill. Check presenters are made of plastic vinyl with a cardboard insert for support. Some credit card companies may give these products out for free with their logos on them as an advertisement.
Check presenters offer privacy to customers. Waitresses and waiters place the receipt inside the check presenters and place them on the table. The presenters have a slotted insert where customers can place their cash or credit card. The restaurant staff pick up the presenters, take them to the front, and confirm the payment method. A signature might be required if the customers use a credit card. When the transaction is complete, the customers are given a receipt.
