MICR Toner

What is it? MICR Toner (Magnetic Ink Character Recognition) is an ink that allows documents printed with it to be read by machines used by banks. MICR toner allows for a secure, high-speed method of scanning and processing information that works through magnetizing the ink and then translating that magnetic information into characters.


Checks should ALWAYS be printed using MICR toner.


To print using MICR toner, you'll need a laser printer that accepts MICR toner. For a list of MICR compatible printers, please visit MICR Pro.
