Default is there a way to print a check register book?

A template or something?

I have Publisher 2000 (also Word 2000)

I found in a search (online) a page with tutorials about money management
that offered a printable check register but it turned out to be a full-size
page (also a pdf version). I've tried to set the pages smaller, thinking if
I printed 4-6 smaller versions of it one page I could cut them apart and put
them together, but they only print one (small) to a page.

This might not seem like a big deal, but I don't have a car and getting
something like this from my bank is a major project (I ask people and they
forget. I could probably call the bank and ask them to mail me one) One
comes with a box of checks when I order them but at some point is filled up.
I got the idea of printing it myself. Like several pages, with checkbook
size "pages" printed several times on it- that could be cut apart and folder
(maybe with a staple) to form a check register book.

If I had a blank page from one, I could scan it, and possibly figure out
how to set it up on a page (my printer has two sided duplex printing) so
each page could be cut and folded to make several pages of the register
book.

I know, I can cut plain paper to size and fold it to make one, but I enjoy
a challenge- learning experience, and thought if I could find a set up for
this (with the lines, squares, spaces for check number, amounts, etc) I'd
like to know.

Thanks,
Carrie

Carrie, I have a check template on my web site in a .wmf format. It is something
you could build upon. Right-click, save as...

My banking is online, I sort of keep track with Money 97. The bank printouts are
great, the cancelled checks are always there, ready to print. I'd recommend
online banking to anyone.

absolutely. i think we only physically write out 10 checks a year now!
it's great at tax time too. however, my bank only makes available the last
90 days of history, so i have to remember to download my register quarterly.

not t mention the money saved on stamps.

I write maybe half of what you do, if that. I do everything online except
for depositing the occasional check I receive.

If my condo association would convert to EFT capability, I'd never
have to write a check again.

Thanks!

Sometimes I think I have the more "different" problem and questions of
anyone here (LOL)

But, the more I can do on my own (without needing a car, or someone to go
and do things for me) the better. Actually, with the cost of gas and time
for running around, whatever any of us can do at home with our own computer
and printer, maybe the better.

Off topic a bit, but on this same idea, I use Staples (from online) quite a
bit, if you buy over $50 you get free shipping (I get blank dvds, cds and
printer paper, cardstock, etc) and I order it before noon one day and it's
at my house (via UPS) before noon the next. This always amazes me.

Mary do you print your own checks or know people who do?

I asked about this once (somewhere) and there's software one can get to set
it up (or use your template)

What I found out:
At one time banks required special magnetic ink for the coding on the
checks, but now have optical readers

I liked the idea of printing my own checks, even though they are pretty
inexpensive and easy to get from online. But- someone said the ink most
home injet printers use isn't too good, and if drops of water hit it (the
check) the ink would run.

I never tried this to test it.

As I just said I like doing as much as I can myself. Not just to save
money, or because it's easier (I live in a rural area and don't have a car)
but I just would rather do it.

Probably there are lots of things I could do myself, if I thought about
it more.

I make my own address labels now (and for family and friends) but that's
simple with Publisher.
