ANSI X9.100-160-1-2021 Magnetic Ink Printing (MICR) Part 1:Formatting MICR

Part 1 of this standard covers design considerations that apply to placement and location of magnetic ink printing on checks, drafts, and other documents intended for automated processing among depository institutions. The vertical and horizontal format of the MICR print band, the print tolerance of between MICR characters and between fields, and considerations of format at the leading edge and the trailing edge of checks, whether personal sized or business sized, and proper restrictions on magnetic and nonmagnetic ink usage in specified area are the primary focus of the specifications. Although some aspects of Part 1 may still be applicable, other types of documents such as internal control forms are not covered. A complete understanding of MICR printing requires reference to other standards listed in Clause 2.
