Bank Check Printer is a Macintosh application that prints your bank checks. It is designed to work with standard 8.5 x 11 inch, sheet-fed, three-to-a-page, business-sized checks. The software can also accommodate voucher checks and wallet-sized checks. The bank checks that you use should be pre-printed with your name, address, routing number, and checking account number.

Simply enter the date, the amount, and the name of the recipient (i.e., the payee), then click the Print button to print your check. You can also include an address on the check or a note in the memo section.


The Bank Check Printer window initially shows the fields for a single check. To print additional checks, toggle the disclosure triangle to reveal fields for a second or third check. If the Bank Check Printer preferences are set up to print voucher checks, however, the window will only show the fields for a single check.

The following keyboard shortcuts can be typed when the date text box is selected:

Set Current Date: "t" or "T"
Add a Day: "=" or "+"
Subtract a Day: "-" or "_"

The Preferences window lets you change the check style, modify the font, or adjust the positioning of printed fields on checks. These custom settings are saved as presets, and you can create as many presets as you need to accommodate all of your checks. Bank Check Printer also provides the ability to export and import presets, allowing you to share your presets with other Bank Check Printer users.

To display an autocompletion pop-up menu for the payee and address fields, check the Enable payee and address autocompletion box in the preferences. Then, when you start to enter a name in one of these fields, the autocompletion menu will display names from your Contacts app that match what you are typing. If you select a name in the menu, that name (or name and associated address) will be entered in the field.
