So we have a user who needs to be able to print cheques and envelopes. We have found one that prints envelopes fine, but the cheques get chewed up in modern printers. 

 

HP have been unable to help, Brother similarly, wondering if anyone else has tried this recently who can make a recommendation?

 

She currently uses a Laser 6P which has been working well, but basically is dead now.

What is the cheque stationery you are using? Are you pulling cheques from a cheque book? The'll probably be too small for the printer feed rollers.

 

If it's a commercial account maybe the bank can provide large format cheque stationery?

 

I have seen clients that print Remittance advice/payment on stationery provided by their bank - it has a perforated cheque section at the bottom and space for the remittance advice at the top all on an A4 size sheet.

I'll check what stationary they are using, but whatever it is, works with the 6P.

Does the cheque need the code line to be MICR (ie magnetic ink) or just optical (OCR).

 

We used to have a printer that printed magnetic ink for remittance slips.  But it was a 135 PP printer (and about 5m long).

 

So depending on volumes.  Unsure if an inkjet could do this, but there's potential a laser can use magnetic toner?

I've printed cheques for years using a dot-matrix printer.  In fact, the last dot matrix printer I purchased I did so specifically for printing cheques (that is, single cheques from a standard cheque book).  Laser printers aren't designed to work with documents that small and inkjet printers can't really handle them either.

 

As for envelopes, I quickly learned to use only tropical seal envelopes (they have an angled flap on the back) in the inkjet printer.  Those self-seal straight edged envelopes will jam in the printer pretty much every time.

Unfortunately, they only do small volumes, maybe 20 a month!

 

I think they just print the persons name, the amount in writing and the actual numbers in the box.
