How to print checks

You can print your checks directly from QuickBooks Online.

Print checks

To print checks:

  1. Select the Plus icon (+) on the Toolbar.

  2. Under Vendors, select Print Checks.

  3. Load your checks into the printer.
    If you need to purchase checks and supplies, go to IntuitMarket.
  4. Select the Bank Account containing the checks to print.
  5. In the Starting check no. field, enter the number of the first check in the printer.
    Avoid special characters such as % or #.
  6. If you have a large number of checks, filter the list using the options on the Sort by drop-down menu or the Show drop-down menu to specify the checks to display and how to sort them.
    For example, the Sort by Date/Payee option sorts checks first by date and then by payee within the same date, and the Show bill payment checks option displays only checks used to pay bills.
  7. Select the checks to print.
  8. Select Preview and print.

  9. Follow the instructions in the Preview printing checks window.
  10. Respond to the Did checks print OK? prompt.

You can mark checks for printing by selecting To print when you enter transactions from the Check or Pay Bills page.

Print a partial page of one or two checks

If you use standard checks, which come three to a page, you may sometimes have a page with one or two checks left over after printing a batch of checks.

To print a partial page of one or two checks:

  1. From the left menu, select Expenses.

  2. On the Expenses tab, select Print Checks.

  3. From the On first page print drop-down list, select1 or 2, depending on the number of checks you have.
    By default, this is set to 3 to print a full page of 3 checks.
  4. Select Print.

To prevent wasted checks and paper jams, you can attach a reusable Intuit Forms Leader to easily print one or two leftover checks, then select 1 or 2 from the On first page print drop-down list, and select Print.

Print voucher checks without the voucher portion

If you have voucher checks, but you only want to print the check, not the voucher portion, you must change the check type to Standard and print one check at a time:

  1. From the left menu, select Expenses.

  2. On the Expenses tab, select Print Checks.

  3. In the Alignment and Setup section, select Standard checks.
  4. In the On first page print field, select from the drop-down list.
  5. Select the check to print.

  6. Select Print.

Follow these steps for each check you want to print without printing the voucher part of the check.
