Check Design Software
Advanced Design: The
was created using the patent-pending font technology to precisely match each of
the printer's pixels when printing at 300 dpi or multiples of 300 dpi above that.
This MICR font eliminates the need to
calibrate the font to the printer, or to use different fonts on different
printers, unless the printer is out of alignment. For printers that
are out of alignment, additional fonts are provided with a calibration tool.
Check Design Software has more versatility than other
software. It is very intuitive, and the possibilities
are infinite. The logic in the program is organized
and straight forward. This is by far the easiest application
to get up and running on the market. Couple that with
the power of the program and it beats competition priced
5 or 10 times higher." -

- Bank Check Design and Printing Software: The MICR fonts provided in this package activate the MICR component
in the 2010 release of the
Bank Check Design and Printing
Software. The software supports importing of signature and logo images, secure number amounts and has many other
powerful features such as VB scripting and database connectivity
to CSV files, Excel, Access, Oracle and SQL Server.
- MICR Print Specifications: These specifications
are a summary of the placement requirements obtained from the ABA
(American Banker's Association).
- ANSI and ISO Compliant: IDAutomation's
MICR E13B fonts were created according to ISO 1004:1995 and meet
the ANSI X9.27-1995 specification for MICR E13B characters. Because they were
created from the ISO spec, the fonts meet the E13B specification
for other countries as well; examples include Australian APCA
Pub 3.3 and Canadian Payments Association Standard 006 Specification
for MICR-Encoded Cheques. These fonts have been proven
to pass the ABA banking standards in the USA for bank checks and
paper-based drafts. IDAutomation MICR fonts have also been tested
on several MICR readers and sorters including the UNISYS DP500 and
the IBM 3890.
- Security Fonts:
Security fonts allow a safer method of printing names and currency amounts
the risk of bank check forgery.
- Visual Basic Source: The Visual Basic 6 source code included with the
MICR Fonts package has been
extracted from a working check printing application and should provide insight
into automated methods of printing bank checks
with IDAutomation MICR E13B fonts.
- Accounting Software Compatibility: Some accounting packages such as
Peachtree 8 or greater allow IDAutomation MICR fonts
to be used on custom check forms. If an accounting application has this capability, MICR fonts can save
money on check printing by helping to streamline the process.

such as Adobe Writer, Distiller, PDF Lib and FOP TTF Reader. This
