Print checks for a current payroll

Gusto supports printing on the following type of check stock - both will include the employee’s earning statement:

  • Customized, check on top paper

  • Blank, check on bottom paper

To print checks for a current payroll:

  1. During the final stages of the payroll run, if you've elected to pay any employees by check, you'll be prompted to choose a check printing format.

  2. Choose your check type:

    • Personalized with check on top

      • Select if you have check stock that is pre-printed with your company and bank info.

        • Starting May 1, 2020, we’ll no longer support printing checks on any personalized check stock that is not Gusto-specific check stock. Instructions for how to buy Gusto's check stock can be found in the article linked above.

    • Blank with check on bottom

      • Select if you have blank check stock and need Gusto to populate your company and bank info.

  3. Load your check stock into your printer.

  4. Click View & print checks to view the PDF that contains the check information and earnings statement.

    • Save the PDF if using ‘Blank with Check on Bottom’ - check numbers will change if the package is regenerated.

    • Deselect the option for Fit to Page or Scale to Page if it is selected by default to avoid printing issues.

  5. Print this PDF on your check stock.

  6. Sign the checks and deliver them to your employees with their paystubs.
