How to Customize the Check Form in QuickBooks 2012

By Stephen L. Nelson

When printing checks from within QuickBooks 2012, 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, QuickBooks displays the dialog box 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 (perhaps something you’ve created in Paint or another image-editing program). This little dialog box just lets you tell QuickBooks where this logo image file is located.
