Add your signature to checks and paychecks

You want to add a signature to checks you print from QuickBooks Desktop.

Detailed instructions

You can create a signature image by signing a piece of paper and then scanning it and saving the scan to a file.

Your signature image should have an 11:3 aspect ratio (11 width and 3 height). It will be sized to fit into a a 2-3/4 inch wide by 3/4 inch tall space and placed directly above the signature line on Intuit-supplied checks.

Be sure your signature file is in the correct file format. QuickBooks accepts almost any image file format, including BMP, JPEG, PNG, and TIFF.

If you use QuickBooks user names and passwords, the signature file is stored by user name and company. If you do not have multiple user names and passwords, the Admin is the implicit user.

  1. From the File menu, select Printer Setup...
  2. In the Form Name drop-down list, select Check/Paycheck.
  3. Put a check mark on Click Print Signature Image.
  4. In the Signature dialog box, click File.
  5. Select the graphic file that contains the signature and click Open.
  6. Click OK in the Signature dialog box then click OK in the Printer Setup dialog box.

IMPORTANT: The Signature feature is not available for Wallet checks.
