Font code for MICR printing

We are using the forms overlay feature in the AS/400 to generate checks. We use the font command in the print file DDS to specify the MICR font. The bank does not like the MICR font we have selected. Can anyone tell me the MICR font they use which their bank accepts?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This <a href=”http://www.micrfonts.com/”>site </a> and this <a href=”http://www.micr-fonts.com/”>Site</a> have several MICR fonts to try. You might want to print sample pages using several different versions of the font (supply pages from different printers if you can as well – it might be your <b><i>printer</i></b> and not the <b><i>font</i></b> the bank is having problems with.) Then take these pages to the bank and see what printer/font combination works best with their equipment.
Good Luck!

    In a previous job (over 12 years ago) we did this, and I think it was an OCR type of font, but it was with a special printer that had a signature card and used plain (watermarked) stock and printed the whole check and signed it at the same time, so I don't know if the font was a "special" code to the printer.

    Thank you for the site, Flame. We'll check them out. We are beginning to think that Host Print Transform may be the culprit. Even the guys are the new IBM/Ricoh Print Group suggested this may be the problem.
