[Bear with me ? perhaps a bit wordy]
Does anyone have experience printing checks to plain check stock from
Quicken - presumably through a 3rd party application? Example:
CHECKMAGIC Software (I guess there?s likely other products).
I accept that Quicken can print checks to formatted stock per
FI/Account. I'm not actually doing that but I'll take it on faith that
it can be made to work.
I write a small handful of checks each month from 3 different
accounts/banks. It would defeat my lazy purposes if I had 3 different
forms to switch in a printer to print ~8 checks each month.
I came across the CHECKMAGIC Software that says all of the right things
about how it works. I'm sure there must be other similar products but it
was as far as I went in my 1st search. So the query is: am I barking up
the wrong tree looking to keep check stock in the tray of a printer and
envelopes in the feeder?
FWIW, I already keep envelopes in the feeder for those few bills that
come without a return envelope so it would be nifty if I could then keep
plain check stock in the tray and just do what I do half-a-dozen times a
month or so in Quicken and have completed checks come out auto-magically.
The CHECKMAGIC software is inexpensive enough and the check stock is as
well so if it can be made to work it seems worth it to me to just make
my entries in Quicken and have the checks printed for me. These would be
those few checks that I don?t want or can?t be auto-drafted and that I?m
not interested having Quicken auto-pay. The bank checks I have on hand
have long ago been paid-for so I can ignore that and just destroy a
check as each check-number is used.
So ? has anyone traveled down this path before? Does it work? What
happens when one check is printed on a stock of three? Is there another
software product that could/should be considered? Are there any pitfalls
to be aware of? Why don?t pig whistle? Is the market going to go up? Are
the Giants or the Knicks ever going to win a game?
Thanks for any thoughts.
