Standalone's 'Route to Works' may be sufficient for your needs. I
just tested it with a couple of checklists. Here's a procedure:

1) Open a checklist in Notes

2) From the routing menu, choose 'To Works'. This opens a slip that
allows you (among other things) to choose the font of the document
being created, and (in this case) to create a new document in Works.

3) Tap on 'Export'

4) Open the second checklist in Notes. Repeat steps 2 & 3, except
instead of creating a new document, choose the option to append to an
existing document, and choose the document you just created (default
name is 'Notepad Export'.

5) Repeat step 4 for each checklist.

6) Open the Works document, make any final tweaks, and print.

Note: When checklists are exported to Works, checked items are
preceded by a '+', and unchecked items are preceded by a '-'.

You can download a trial version of 'Route to Works' here:
