    • 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?
      A laser printer (or a MICR printer) is required to print checks on blank stock. If you will be printing check data only on pre-printed checks, you can use any printer.

      Many of our clients prefer to use the office/home laser printers. However, MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) printers will print checks with the best quality.

      We do NOT recommend ink-jet printers for blank stock check printing because we have found some ATMs and grocery stores may not be able to scan the checks if they are using the old scanners.

      You can purchase the laser printer from your local office store and online.
