PCL MICR / E-13b Bitmapped Soft Fonts
for Check Printing
Do you want to print your own checks? Check printing requires a laser printer, special magnetic toner, check paper, and our PCL 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 printing must be exceedingly accurate. It can be done on any HP or compatible laser printer, provided you can purchase special magnetic toner cartridges for that printer. This package includes PCL bitmapped MICR font (E-13B) soft fonts in 600 and 300 dpi, plus instructions on how to layout and calibrate your check printing. All fonts meet ANSI X9.27-1995, ANSI X9.100-160-1-2009, and the Canadian CPA006 standards. To be certain your check meets these standards add a MICR gauge to your order.
When printing checks, you also need a way to print the amount on checks in a secure fashion. This package also includes two different Secure Number™ fonts, at both 600 dpi and 300 dpi. They let you print check amounts in dollars, pounds sterling, euros, or yens that are very hard to alter. These PCL fonts do not include alphabetic characters for printing payee names. (This is the correct package for Optio software users.)
