MICR Toner Cartridges are required when printing checks. MICR is an acronym for Magnetic Ink Character Recognition. MICR toner cartridges are specialty cartridges filled with magnetic particles. There is a difference between regular toner cartridges and MICR Cartridges. The real difference between MICR Toner and regular toner cartridges is that MICR Toner contains a higher iron ore content to allow you to print professional bank checks from your current laser printer. This will enable you to print professional bank checks from your own home or office.
Banks use Magnetic Ink Character Recognition to read checks with their check scanning machines, and this requires the checks be printed with MICR Toner. If you would like to print your own checks conveniently and save money you will need to print your checks with Magnetic Toner. The advantage to using MICR Cartridges is when your check is processed at the bank it can be read and sorted by high speed processing machines allowing the bank to accurately process the checks using automated equipment. If you do not use MICR Cartridges your checks will have to be entered manually and will be subject to bank fees. These bank fees are per-check and will add up quickly depending on how many checks you print a month.
