1.Starting check number
For Standard, Voucher, Binder and Manual checks, the First Check number can be three to six digits long. Wallet checks can be three to four digits long.
what is the purpose of the check number?
The check number helps you keep track of your checks. It normally appears in the upper-right corner of the check, and it's also printed in magnetic ink in the account line along the bottom of the check. See Image This enables the bank's check-processing equipment to capture the number electronically and print it on your statement. Check numbers also allow you to locate a particular check if you wish to stop payment.

2.Routing number
The bank routing number is a unique identifier for a particular branch of a bank. Bank routing numbers are always nine digits in length and can be found at the bottom of your check, between the two |: and |: symbols. See Image

3.Account Number

Please do not include any spaces or hyphens in your account number.

4. Fractional Number
The bank fractional number can be found in the upper right hand corner for example 55-271/212. See Image

5.How do I know if I need reverse numbering?
If your sheet-fed (i.e., laser, inkjet, or bubble jet) printer loads from the front, you may need to request reverse printing.
Here's a quick test:

  1. Mark a sheet of paper on one side.
  2. Load the sheet into your printer, marked side up.
  3. Print any document.

If your document prints on the unmarked side, ask us to reverse-print your checks. You'll receive them with the starting number at the bottom of the stack, rather than at the top.

6.What is "Number of Signature Lines"?
You have the option of adding an additional line for a second signature on your checks. Click the appropriate radio button to select the desired number of signature lines.

7. Text above signature line (optional)
text above signature line is used for specific instructions For example “void after 90 days”

8. Logo(optional)
You may add your custom logo free of charge. Please email it to logo@techchecks.net in a bmp. Tiff. Or jpeg file. Be sure to include the name on the check and your order number in the subject area. (You will be given an order number when you checkout).

9. Lines on check(optional)
