If you'd prefer to print your own checks instead of ordering a box of preprinted checks, check printing software can make this possible. Finding a check printing program that will suit your individual needs will depend on what you need to print checks for. If you need high security and business quality checks printed, you'll want to go with a piece of check printing software that allows you to print checks using magnetic ink, watermarking, MICR coding and other security features. If you're just printing checks for personal use, a financial program such as Microsoft Money or Quicken/Quickbooks can be used as a check printing program as well, essentially constituting free check printing software built in. Often, companies that make these programs also offer special paper to print checks from their software onto, for a more professional touch.
