MICR E13B Font Overview and Features

Order the MICR E13B Font Advantage Package

MICR E13B is a special font that is used on bank checks and drafts in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Panama, UK, and other countries to print E13B characters for magnetic recognition and optical character recognition systems. This MICR font contains 10 specially-designed numeric characters 0 through 9, and four special symbols: transit, amount, on-us, and dash.

  • Check Design Software ExampleAdvanced Design: The IDAutomationMICR font 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.
  • Bank Check Design and Printing Software: The 2013 version of the Bank Check Design and Printing Software adds .NET Framework 2.0 native compatibility, Windows 8 compatibility and includes performance enhancements to the printing, drawing and viewing processes. 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).
    "IDAutomation's 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." - Ted Sapperstein, Dee Michaels Inc.
  • 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 to reduce 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.
  • Embedding Support: IDAutomation MICR fonts enable embedding in special PDF document applications such as Adobe Writer, Distiller, PDF Lib and FOP TTF Reader. This level of embedding also supports creation of OpenType and TrueDoc fonts for web pages.
  • 24 Additional Fonts: Additional MICR fonts are provided for printers that are out of alignment. The following fonts are provided in the package and all font names begin with IDAutomation.
Intensity Narrow 2 Narrow 1 Standard Width Wide 1 Wide 2
Extra Light N2XL N1XL XL W1XL W2XL
Light N2L N1L L W1L W2L
Normal N2 N1 IDAutomationMICR W1 W2
