What You Need To Know About
Printable Business Checks

There are a few simple things you need to know about printable business checks. You’ll need accounting software, laser business checks, check writing add-on software, the right printer, and you’re ready to print. Printed business checks and preprinted business checks will save your business time and money.

Printable business checks are great for your business, and they are simple to use.

In this quick guide, we’ll give you everything that you need to know about printed business checks. Let’s dive in.

First, you’ll need accounting software

Accounting software is critical for your business success.

It provides full 24/7 financial visibility into your organization, empowering your business decisions.

While there are many popular accounting software programs in the market today, most of our clients use the QuickBooks® or Peachtree/Sage® accounting systems.

At Checksforless.com®, we guarantee that your laser checks will be 100% compatible with your current accounting systems, including these QuickBooks® and Peachtree/Sage® accounting systems.

Checksforless.com® also guarantees that your laser checks will match your existing system or software title and version. For custom systems, simply send us a voided check and we’ll match it exactly at no additional charge.

Then, it’s time order business laser checks

Laser checks are essential for businesses that want to maximize existing investments into their accounting software programs. These business laser checks automatically track spending, maintain vendor details, and create easy-access records.

Not only do laser business checks help ensure financial accuracy, but they also save businesses critical time and money that matters most. We also provide custom business checks that fully represent your organization, including your company logo and brand colors.

Checksforless.com® has laser voucher checks, laser wallet checks, and 3 per page laser checks in thousands of styles and titles to meet your business needs.

For more details on our laser business check options, please visit our Business Check Formats page.

Add check writing add-on software

Most accounting systems will require check writing add-on software (or a cloud-based option) to write checks easily across multiple accounts, so find what works best for you.

Buy MICR ink

“MICR” stands for “Magnetic Ink Character Recognition” and it refers to the special numbers at the bottom of checks that include the account number, the bank’s routing number, check number, and other details. The Federal Reserve and all banks require that checks be printed with MICR ink or toner for ease of processing.

While most financial institutions read checks optically and magnetically, some lack the optical abilities. This means that if your check doesn’t have the magnetic ink, it won’t be read, and can result in processing delays, fees, and possible financial risk.

You will need MICR ink for check printing on Inkjet printers, and you will need MICR toner for check printing on laser printers.

Note on preprinted checks: If this MICR line (bank account number, routing information, etc.) has been preprinted by a check printer and you are only printing payee information and the amount, you don’t need magnetic ink. For our preprinted checks, Checksforless.com offers a 100% financial institution compatibility guarantee. Our state-of-the-art MICR matching system ensures readability by all financial institutions.

Get the right printer

Now that you have your printable business checks or preprinted business checks, you’re almost ready to print.

The right printer for your printed business checks depends on your specific business needs.
  • If you print a small check volume (and you’re satisfied with slower printing speeds and less accessories): Look at Inkjet MICR printers
  • If you print a large check volume/have many employees involved (and you’re looking for faster printing speeds, more accessories, and more security features): Look at Workgroup laser MICR printers
