Remember! Before you print: 

  1. Checks can only be printed ONCE
  2. Checks must be printed using MICR Toner
  3. Checks must be printed using Check Stock

After printing, the batch cannot be printed again; however, you can still select view check copies.


If a check does not print properly (if, for example, the check stock jams or the correct toner isn't used) and you need to reprint a check(s), you must contact GreenSlate Support and we will enable a reprint for you. 


NOTE: If you do not have checks ready to print, you can also install the app via the My Account icon in the upper right.  Click DOWNLOAD DESKTOP APP from the drop down menu then select Windows or Mac and follow the prompts.  The GreenSlate icon will be on your desktop once the installation is complete.
