Hello, @ICT.


I'd be glad to help guide you change the font size of your checks in QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT).


Yes, to adjust the size/font of your transaction/s when printing, you must go to the Printer Setup and adjust the size from there.


  1. Go to the File menu.
  2. Select Printer Setup....
  3. Select a Form Name (check/paycheck).
  4. Go to the Fonts column.
  5. Make the necessary adjustments from there.
  6. Click OK twice to save the changes.

You can see attached screenshots for additional reference.

  1. On the Check page, or when creating check, click on the drop-down arrow under Print.
  2. Select Check.
  3. Click on Yes when asked to record the transaction.
  4. Click OK.
  5. On the Print Checks page, click on the Fonts column.
  6. Make the necessary changes .

I appreciate the screenshots you've given, @ICT.


Allow me to provide some clarifications about changing the font size of your checks in QuickBooks Online.


The steps given by my peer, Angelyn_T is applicable for QuickBooks Desktop version. Based on the screenshot that you've provided, I can see that you're currently using QuickBooks Online. That said, changing the checks' font size in this platform isn't available. You can only make changes to the sales forms fonts by customizing it.


However, our developers are constantly working to improve the product and appreciates the help of users in bringing things like this to their attention.
