Cheques are one of the most iconic forms of payments. They’ve been around for decades and are probably one of the most versatile payments methods. These days, however, going through many cheque books can cost more than you’d like to spend. Until now.
Check Writer III is Mac OS X app, available on the Mac App Store and it allows you to print your own cheques! Like most people, before discovering this application I didn’t even know that printing cheques was an accepted practice, let a along legal. It almost sounds too good to be true. Why pay the bank money for a each cheque book when you can just print your own, right? Turns out, the standards for the printed cheque are very stringent and the printed copy must abide by specific rules and regulations. The great news is that Check Writer III takes care of all these for you and guarantees to be compliant with banking system in both US and Canada. Simply open the app, type in the essential information and you’re ready to print.
Overall, Check Writer III seems like a really a good tool for printing cheques. It even lets you completely customize cheques. Anything from fonts and text sizes to background images is configurable inside the app, which is a big win for customization. My only complaint is usability. At times it can be confusing and somewhat unintuitive but once you get the hang of things, it’s smooth sailing from there. The learning curve can be a little steep but if you’re writing a lot of cheques, Check Writer III is an indispensable tool.
