MICR fonts

In addition to the normal fonts supplied with the printer, three standard fonts are available to print MICR characters: E13B, E13B*, and CMC7.

The E13B font is used in the United States and the CMC7 font is used in certain countries in Europe. The Hollow E13B* font is identical in size to the E13B font, but will not be read correctly by MICR reader-sorter equipment. This font can be used for application development while the security of the E13B font is maintained.

Test documents that contain Hollow E13B* font will exhibit the same registration characteristics as the E13B font, but the documents will not be negotiable.

AFP MICR fonts for Infoprint 4000/4100 printers are available for downloading at www.printers.ibm.com (select Support and Maintenance and then Downloads).
