CheckPrixa E13B MICR Font




CheckPrixa MICR E13B Font is a special font that is developed for printing checks with a laser printer and magnetic ink.

Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (or MICR) is used in the banking industry for the check payment processing. The funny looking digits found at the bottom of checks can be read by sliding a check through a special machine known as a MICR Reader.

When printed in a high resolution printer (600 DPI and above), CheckPrixa's font produces great looking characters that are easily processed by most readers. It is a robust solution for users that require high precision and reliability in the printing process.

With CheckPrixa's MICR E13B Font , you can easily automate check printing by incorporating the font into your existing infrastructure.



CheckPrixa MICR Font is based on the E13-B check printing standard. This standard is used in United States, United Kingdom, Canada and many countries throughout the world.
