Most of the typical American check's surface (cheque, in non-American English) is self-explanatory. There is the account holder's name and
address, the check number, blank space to write in the payee's name, a box to write in the dollar amount in digits, blank space to
write in the dollar amount in letters, an area for a memo and finally the area to sign the check.
The interesting and mysterious part is a line at the bottom of the check with strange looking numbers and symbols. The line consists of digits and symbols
in a special font known as MICR which is usually magnetized and scannable and machine-readable.
Account number - The checking account number the bank has assigned to the account holder.
Check number - This sequence number generally agrees with the legible check number on the upper right of the check and is sequentially incremented from one check to the next.
Use the form below to create an image of a check. After the sample check has been generated you can type inside the blank areas of the check and also type over the account holder's info.
You can then print the check or save it as a PDF file. If the MICR line is cut off due to width limit, select a smaller MICR size.
