Step 3) Select Your Printing Options
Arguably the longest step to this whole guide is one that really doesn't have all that much to do with Quicken at all! After you select the "Print Checks" option as outlined in step 2, the window that contains all of your various options should appear, and if you're a veteran printer, you should have no problem navigating the menus, drop down lists, and selections presented to you. If, however, you don't print things and still have trouble figuring all of this out, here's a quick run down:
Print Quality: Print quality, as it sounds, determines the amount of ink that each letter or line you're printing will take. The higher the quality, the more ink is used, and thus the darker and more professional your work will look. If you're printing these checks for a professional purpose, it is recommended that you use higher quality settings (though, perhaps not the highest), but if you're using them for personal tracking or between friends, you could stand to use "Fast Normal" or "Fast Draft".
Pages: If you're printing a few pages of checks, the default setting under the "Pages" section should be enough for you. If, however, you have multiple pages of checks in the viewing window, but you only want to print a select few of them, you'll want to change these settings. By default, it will print all the pages you have opened, but by using the "Page Range" option, you can select individual pages (separate them by commas), or do a range of pages, such as 2-6, as indicated by a hyphen. You can also choose the "current page" option to print just the checks displayed on the current page.
Copies: The last setting you'll probably have to worry about (anything else can just be left at default) is the "Copies" setting, which can be used to print multiple copies of your checks for distribution to various people, companies, or whoever else would need them. Simply change the number in the written field to match how many copies you want. (Note: Copies is not the same as pages. If you're printing 3 pages and you write in that you want 2 copies, you will get 6 total pages)
