Is Check Printing Legal?
Yes, printing checks from your own printer is perfectly legal. However, they must be printed on special paper.
Do I need special printer toner?
Most banks accept checks printed with regular laser print toner.
Optical check readers enable banks to electronically process checks not printed with Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) toner.
If your bank does not use optical check readers, the check will be processed manually instead of electronically.
However, to be on the safe side you should use MICR toner. A jet or dot matrix printer CAN'T be used to print checks.

How can I print checks on preprinted checks?
Just check the "Print on blank check stock" check box.
