MICR / E-13b Fonts for Check Printing

Printing MICR Encoding

Do you want to print your own checks? Check printing requires a laser printer, special magnetic toner, check paper, and our MICR / E13-B fonts! U.S. law (Check 21 Act)  and Canadian law (CPA006)  requires the bottom sequence of numbers on a check be printed in a special  font called MICR or E-13B, using magnetic toner. This font includes the numbers 0 through 9 and four special characters: On-Us, Transit, Amount, and Dash. MICR sample

MICR Accuracy

MICR printing must be exceedingly accurate. It requires a 600 dpi or better laser printer with a magnetic toner cartridge. Our software package includes the MICR font (E-13B) and a calibration program to ensure the checks you print will work at your bank. All fonts meet ANSI X9.27-1995, ANSI X9.100-160-1-2009, and the Canadian CPA006 standards.

MICR Fonts

This software package includes MICR fonts in TrueType and PostScript formats. They work in all current versions of Windows and the fonts themselves also work on Macs, Linux, and Unix. Need a PCL MICR font?

Secure Fonts

When printing checks, you also need a way to print the amount and the payee name in a secure fashion. This package also includes a limited set of eight different Secure Fonts™. They let you print payee names and check amounts in dollars, pounds sterling, Euros, or yens that are very hard to forge or alter. (Optio software users need the PCL bitmapped MICR font set.)  Note that you only get a limited Secure Font set with the MICR font package.

MICR Gauges

To be certain your check meets these standards add a MICR gauge to your order. It only costs $39.95 to add a MICR position gauge to your order.

Add a MICR Check Position Gauge to your order for accurate printing:
