Restaurant365 allows users to print their own checks without relying upon pre-printed check stock.  This gives users greater flexibility and added security as they will not have to keep pre-printed check stock on premises, or under lock and key.  Blank checks also offer additional convenience, allowing you to print multiple checks out of multiple checkbooks in a single check run, with no need to go into the printer and change the checks between changing the checkbook in the system.  Click here for training on how to Print Checks
