There is misinformation being circulated regarding the ability to print QuickBooks checks from blank check stock, but fortunately for you, PrintBoss is here to straighten things out. Mis-informants would lead you to believe that it is impossible to print QuickBooks checks from blank check stock. In fact, some people who work for the accounting software giant itself will perpetuate this mis-information. They will explain that it is possible to print checks from QuickBooks, but they must be preprinted checks (i.e. must have the MICR line and such already printed on the check) and the check must be at the top, above the pay stubs. For QuickBooks users, this means more expensive check stock and weaker compliancy with banking regulations. Let us explain.
By purchasing blank check stock, you are saving 70% on what you would be spending with preprinted stock from QuickBooks or any other manufacturer. Furthermore, blank check stock saves you the hassle of check number confusion as you no longer have to worry about your checks getting out of order since when you print on blank stock, it is PrintBoss that maintains the order, not the check stock. Also, blank check stock has innate security as account and routing numbers are not on the check until you print it.
Regarding compliance, banks request the MICR line be printed on the straightest edge on the check. By printing checks located above their pay stubs, the MICR line is being printed on a perforated edge. By printing checks located below their pay stubs, which is PrintBoss’ default setting, the MICR line is printed on a clean edge of the paper.
