Check Positions and Settings

Modified on: 2019-08-06 11:45:07 -0400


Design Manager offers three check options - top, middle, and bottom.  You may select whichever position check you with to use and you can order them through our partner Nelco.  

Top Position


Middle Position


Bottom Position


If you notice, the Top Position check has the word Dollars pre-printed on it while the middle and bottom checks do not.  Instead, Design Manager prints the word Dollars after the dollar amount is printed, thus not allowing for anyone to write on the check to change the amount.  So, we have to right align the amounts on the top check option to avoid a security issue.  If the company/user wants to avoid the right aligned printing on the check, we suggest they get the middle or bottom options the next time they purchase new checks.


If you would like to change the position of how the check prints on the page follow the steps below:

1. Click File - Company Settings


2. Click Advanced


3. Click the Check position drop down menu and choose your position


If you need to make adjustments to the top or bottom alignment (move printing up or down), use the Trim Printer Alignment field. 

To move printing down, use a positive number; start with .25.

To move it up on the check, use a negative number; start with -.25.

Print a check to regular paper and hold it up over your check to see if the adjustment made matches or further adjustments need to be made.
