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?
If you have pre-printed checks with MICR line, you can use any printer. If you need to print checks on blank stock, we suggest MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) printers and laser printer. Most US banks are using optical check readers today which can scan the checks printed on blank stock with regular office/home laser printers. Many of our customers prefer to use laser printers. However, MICR toner and MICR ink will print checks with the best quality.
We do not suggest the normal ink-jet printer for blank stock check printing because some ATMs and grocery stores may not be able to scan the checks if they are still using the old scanners.
You can purchase the laser printer
from your local office store and online.
