Can you help me realign my printing of checks

Thank you for reaching out to us here on the Community page, @imejia.


Most alignment issues when printing checks in QuickBooks Desktop can be resolved by adjusting the width and length from the Printer Setup window.


Here's how:


  1. Select Printer Setup from the File menu.
  2. At the Form Name drop-down choose Check/Paycheck.
  3. For the check style, select Voucher check.
  4. Tap on Align at the left pane, then click on Print Sample to compare it to your pre-printed checks.
  5. Using the grid on the sample adjust the horizontal and vertical settings; then click OK.
  6. Click Align again and Print another sample.
  7. Compare the sample to your paycheck stock and adjust the alignment again as necessary.
  8. Repeat the steps until you have the alignment perfect.c8 1.PNG c8 2.PNG

If the problem continues, I suggest running the PDF repair tool. For you guide, check out these articles:
