I need software which can print the full check onto blank check stock.

Okay MeFi brain trust, I'm coming up with very few answers on this using my Google-Fu.... Someone out there has to be doing this already.
I already have a larger HP Laserjet with MICR toner and check stock. What I don't have is a program that can do the rest. My first run of checks is ~2,000 checks, with the data coming from an Excel spreadsheet. In the future, we'd like to also use Quickbooks as a data source.
We previously were using a different company's system to do our check printing, but they were atrociously expensive -- enough that I could hire 1-2 full-time employees and have them print checks 1-2 days a month and they'd still be less expensive. Even having the employees playing around on Facebook 80% of the time would be less expensive.
Some of our banks offer such a service, but not all of our bank accounts are at the same bank, nor can they be for various reasons, so that's out of the question.
I've looked at VersaChecks, but they're too amateurish, particularly with their bogus account verification crap (and tacky imprint all over the checks), hidden high per-check printing fees. Oh, and the fact that their customer service is pathetic. I tried calling them multiple times. When I'd call I'd get music. No greeting, no menu, just music. So I waited...and waited....20 minutes later I get the phone tree "Press 1 for sales, etc.". Pressed 1... waited another 40 minutes before someone answered and was borderline rude and certainly not helpful. No sale.
