MICR / E-13b Fonts for Check Printing

Printing MICR Encoding

Are you interested in printing your own checks? You will need a laser printer, special magnetic toner, check paper, and our MICR / E13-B fonts to print your checks! Under U.S. and Canadian law (CPA006), the bottom sequence of numbers on a check must be printed in a special font called MICR or E-13B, using magnetic toner. This unique 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 extremely accurate. MICR printing requires a laser printer with a 600 dpi or better and 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 our fonts are compliant with ANSI X9.27-1995, ANSI X9.100-161-1-2009, and Canadian CPA006 standards.

MICR Fonts

The software package includes MICR fonts in both TrueType and PostScript formats. They are compatible with all current versions of Windows, and the fonts themselves are also compatible with Macs, Linux, and Unix.

Secure Fonts

Printing checks also requires the ability to print the amount and payee name in a secure manner. This package also includes eight different Secure Fonts™. This package also includes a limited set of eight different Secure Fonts™. These fonts 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.)  The MICR font package includes only a limited set of these Secure Font™.

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:
