How to Customize Check Forms in QuickBooks 2011

By Stephen L. Nelson

Before you write your checks in QuickBooks, you might decide that you want to personalize them a little. You might want your checks to reflect the look of your business. For example, QuickBooks gives you the opportunity to change the fonts on your checks. If you click the Fonts tab in the Print Checks dialog box, QuickBooks displays a couple of buttons you can click to specify what fonts QuickBooks should use for printing check forms.


If you click the Font button, for example, QuickBooks displays the Select Font dialog box. You select the font you want from the Font list box, any special type style such as bold or italic from the Font Style list box, and the point size from the Size list box. You can experiment with different font settings and see the combined effect in the Sample box.


If you click the Partial Page tab, use this tab’s buttons to tell QuickBooks how you feed a partial page of check forms through your printer.


One final tidbit about customizing check forms. If you click the Logo button (available in the Print Checks dialog box), QuickBooks displays a little dialog box that lets you tell QuickBooks it should print a logo on your checks. To print a logo, you need an image file for the logo. This little dialog box just lets you tell QuickBooks where this logo image file is located.
