Poor Print Quality

Quicken Version R34.24 Build
Windows 10 Home 21H1
Brother Printer

I am having trouble with the print quality when printing Quicken checks. The printed checks are not readable as the print is extremely light and some letters and numbers appear to only partially print. I am printing on Intuit checks, wallet size, portrait orientation, 3 checks to a page. This issue has just started today.

I have printed sample checks onto a piece of white, inkjet paper as a test and the results are fine. My printer is having no issues printing documents from other applications.

I feel that the issue may be with the paper quality of the Intuit checks as the printer is functioning properly and Quicken prints perfectly to plain printer paper.

Is there anything I might be overlooking in attempting to regain print quality?

EDIT: I loaded a sheet of blank checks and then printed a Word document to the checks as a test of the paper. The Word document also printed poorly which makes a stronger case for the Intuit paper itself.

    we never heard back from you. Have you ever gotten a handle on your print quality issues?
    What did you have to do to fix it? Clean printer nozzles? Install a new ink cartridge? Change Printer Properties from Auto-detect to standard paper, 8.5*11"?
