Just a Few Things About MICR Printing

We’ve talked about what MICR toners are before, now let’s move on to a few things regarding MICR printing.

What kind of printer works better with MICR printing?

There are some printers specifically designed for MICR printing and use ribbons. However, in case you also need a regular printer for home and office, a more common laser printer might be a better option. In addition, if you’re looking for affordable re-manufactured MICR printing supplies, there are more MICR toners for laser printer in the market as opposed to the printers using ribbons.

We do advise users to search for what MICR toners that are available on the market then compared the printer models to figure out which one works best as a MICR printing machine and a regular printer for day-to-day use.

Consider using special fonts for checking printing

MICR fonts are required to meet banking standards, same as formatting. Make sure it meets the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) and ABA (American Bankers Association) standards in order to prevent check rejections.

Regarding signature

If you print out a large number of checks and wish to include the signature instead of signing them one by one, consider using a special signature font or incorporate a graphic of the signature. However, make sure the signature does not go over the solid dark line on the bottom of the check, which will also cause the checks to be rejected.

Regarding paper selection

Since you’re printing checks, extra security on paper selection seems logical. Specialized paper types can prevent counterfeit, alteration, and unauthorized reproduction. Some even come with background pattern called pantograph. Moreover, extra security can be achieved with some paper that comes with special features that when the checks are copied, the word “VOID” will appear on the check to prevent fraudulent use.

Make sure to store the paper stock at a location with fairly low humidity and moisture to prevent damage to the special features.
