Standard Check Printing - How to print just one?

I am working for a client who has a large amount of the 3-up standard checks for QB. I am new to this client and I spent an enormous amount of time yesterday HAND WRITING checks and ENVELOPES for the client. The client and I discussed how to stop duplicating work, he has the standard 3-up checks that can be printed. My question is, how do print one check? Let's say you use 2 of the 3 checks on the page and you have one left; how do you use that one check? I have searched and cannot find instructions. It seems silly to assume that QB would make a program where you could ONLY print checks in quantities of 3 but you never know. I would like to have an idea before I go back to the client's to pay his bills. I have generally used the voucher checks so this is unfamiliar to me. Any help or ideas would be much appreciated!

QB prints the number of checks called to print. The problem you will have is sending a single check through the printer. If you cannot use the envelope feed you may have to tape it to a blank sheet.
