Print checks and their accompanying letter directly from your Macintosh with this easy to use check printing application : enter the order (payee), the Dollar amount, and voila ! Check Writer will automatically generate the written amount so you do not have to worry about spelling it out.
Drop the picture of your signature onto Check Writer III, and it will sign your checks automatically.
All elements of the check can be moved to perfectly fit your needs, and you can decide which elements will be printed (convenient for pre-printed paper).
Layouts can be saved to file to reload them later. Every bank account has its own layout.
Add up to 9 pictures to your checks for elaborate layout.
Print as many blank checks as you want to use them like regular checkbooks.
Manage up to 15 bank accounts and switch instantly between them.
Extremely accurate MICR E13B technology is used to print special characters at the bottom of checks so they are recognized by bank processing.
Keep track of all your expenses and deposits with the built-in electronic record book (Register). Balance is calculated automatically. Reconcile with your bank statement just as easily as you would with a paper record book. Save, load data and settings to use different accounts. Set different fonts to print your name.
Checks can be printed on regular letter-size paper, plain white or color, as well as on professional looking check refill paper available from fine office supply stores.

Usage tip :
As mentioned above, the MICR E13B font used in this application has been purchased by regional and national banks for their own use, after stringent tests. We are absolutely confident they will perform perfectly when used correctly. However, it is necessary to strictly follow these principles :
1 - It is paramount never to use "scale to fit". Printing must be done at 100% to insure the MICR printing conforms to standard.
2 - MICR Toner (magnetic ink) is mandatory to meet the American Banking Association MICR E13B standard and U.S. law (Check 21 Act). MICR E13B printing complies with ANSI X9.27-1995, ANSI X9.100-160-1-2009, and Canadian CPA006 standards.
Although many banks today use Optical Character Recognition which accepts any ink, some are equipped with readers that require magnetic ink, and will be suspicious of checks printed with ordinary ink.
MICR toner is indistinguishable of regular black toner.
If you still have questions, please use the support link to contact us, we will do all we can to help ASAP.
- Under some circumstances, the font size in fields such as date, or payee, was too small. This has been corrected
- In Preferences, a system of printer calibration has been added for printers that print too small or too big.
