Print Your Own Check

Written by Todd Martin on .

Ever look at how much you are paying for the boxes of check stock?

We find that a lot of customers have multiple boxes of check stock for each bank account they print checks for in Sage ERP MAS 90 and Sage ERP MAS 200. Usually there are long lead times to get pre printed check stock and the cost can be very expensive compared to plain check stock. An average customer may pay $84.00 for 250 checks pre-printed in a single color. For the same price of 250 pre-printed checks, that same customer can get 1000 blank checks. How can you do this at your company?

It is easy to setup printing in Sage MAS 90 and 200 for blank check stock. Just a few things are needed:

  1. A printer that has the ability to purchase Micr Toner
  2. Micr Toner
  3. Micr Font from ADOBE
  4. Blank Check Stock

*Links are for your reference. MBA does not endorse any of the providers linked. ADOBE MICR font is the preferred font by SAGE.

Once you have everything for printing your own checks installed and setup just go to Accounts Payable|Setup|Bank Code Maintenance and choose the bank you need to print checks from. Click on the MICR button and fill out the information to build the Micr number. That is it! You can also go into crystal reports and edit the form to have your Logo.

You don't have to hardcode the address and bank info that prints on the check. Use the fields from MAS 90 to populate this info so that it can change based on which company you are in and what bank code you are using.
