What is a MICR cartridge?

MICR stands for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition. MICR toner cartridges have a special type of magnetic toner that is required by banking institutions to print cheques. If you have the choice between buying a regular toner cartridge, or a MICR cartridge, consider your needs carefully, because MICR cartridges tend to be more expensive.

You will need a MICR cartridge if you’re printing the banking information and cheque number on the cheque. These are required for a computer to read the cheque. If you have a pre-printed cheque and are just filling in the payee and the amount, you won’t need to use a MICR cartridge.

If you do need a MICR cartridge, let us know! We carry many toner cartridges in MICR format.
