  • Choose the style of check, i.e. between options such as Standard, Voucher or Wallet and ensure that the proper name of the printer is shown on the screen. Then click on Print.

If you are printing multiple checks simultaneously, then here are the steps that you should follow:

  • Select Banking and then Write Checks.
  • Choose the box named Print Later which is located adjacent to the Print icon for every check that you wish to print out. Then close the Write Checks window as well.
  • Choose File and then select the Print Form Choose either Paychecks or Checks as you deem suitable.
  • Choose your bank account.
  • Select the checks that you wish to print out by putting the check mark next to the same. Then select the column for check marks for placement or removal of the check mark.
  • Enter the first check number before selecting OK.
  • Select the style of check, namely Standard, Voucher or Wallet and ensure that the proper printer name is shown accordingly. Then choose Print.
