CMC7 fonts for check printing

Windows Mac OS X and Linux fonts

CMC7 (Code Magnetic Character, part of ISO-1004-2:2013 MICR standard) is necessary to print the numbers and special symbols at the bottom of checks so they can be recognized by the OCR/magnetic ink reader systems used by banks in Continental Europe, Mexico, Brasil and Japan. In the past, these fonts where supplied as cartridges. Thanks to modern technology, these fonts are now available for Windows, Mac OS X, OS/2, Linux.

How does it work ?

These CMC7 fonts come in both TrueType, and OpenType PostScript. They are installed just like any other font. Once installed, they are available to all applications in the system, like Helvetica, Arial, Times New Roman, Courier...

To create the proper magnetic strip, one needs numbers, and separator symbols. The separators are ABCDE.

Below is an example of the data one would enter in a plain font, to get the same as what is printed at  the bottom of a pre-printed check:

C1234567 C123456789012E123456789012A

This is how it looks with the CMC7 font from Match Software :

All you have to do, is to copy on the screen what you see at the bottom of your own checks ! This data can be entered by hand, or suplied by any database or spreadsheet program.

Tests on a variety of current laser printers have showed constant results, within MICR tolerance, measured with standard test equipment. This font meets or exceeds ISO 1004-2:2013 Standard and the French Banking Association (Association des Banques Françaises) standards.

What do I need besides the font ?

To print reliable CMC7 magnetic strips, a laser printer with special MICR toner must be used. This special toner works perfectly for other applications as well . Some ink jet printers (mainly high end) can also be used with MICR toner.

Check paper is not mandatory, and valid checks can be produced on plain paper stock, but they will look more professional on a medium meant for this. You can find check refill at major office supply retailers, such as Office Depot, Stapples, etc, in several presentations : 1 per page top, middle or bottom (voucher), three per page, etc. It is also easy to find at any reputable online or mail order office supply.

See our links page for MICR toner and check stock suppliers.

Setting up applications

It is easy to create checks from any program, including the simplest word processors (a Word template document is provided with the package). The CMC7 fonts are available to all standard applications, as a regular system font.

Other applications well suited for check printing are database programs, such as Crystal Reports or Access for Windows, or ACI's 4D for Macintosh. Spreadsheet programs and their data merge can also be used successfully. Basically, any program that can print numbers and text can be used. Including the simplest like WordPad and SimpleText, or the most sophisticated, like Desktop Publishing Programs such as PageMaker™, Adobe InDesign, or Quark XPress.
