MICR Toner allows users the ability to print their own checks
using a desktop laser printer with blank check stock. The toner cartridge is the
same as a regular laser printer cartridge with a slight modification.
The MICR cartridge is created exactly the same as a regular cartridge but instead of
using regular toner, the toner is replaced with a formulated special grade of
magnetic iron oxide added to regular toner which provides the characters with a
magnetic signal. If you attempt to print checks with just a regular
(non-magnetic) toner the characters will print visually correct, but it is what
you can't see that will cause you the most problems. Why use MICR toner? If you do not use MICR
Toner, the routing numbers will
not be magnetically readable by a bank reader-sorter. The costly results will
be that your checks will be rejected by the issuing bank and often times
additional check processing fees will be imposed by the bank and can cost up to
$35 per check.
Things to consider when choosing which MICR Toner cartridge to purchase include: cartridge type (new or recycled), cartridge brand (company) and cartridge price. Purchasing new cartridges can start adding up quickly, not only in cost but also in our landfills. A cartridge which has not been previously used, typically provides a sense of reliability, but no cartridge is faultless. The average new cartridge has a 4% failure rate right out of the box, just because of the way the cartridge is designed and the fact that they use computer chips to enable the user to have information about the cartridge like: manufacturing date, number of copies made and number of copies left, that can easily be shorted out by static electricity. The general public is led to believe that new cartridges have a more reliable cartridge performance with consistent yields (or total number of prints per cartridge). But what company would want you to purchase someone else's product? When purchasing a recycled cartridge, you not only can save money but you can also help to save our environment by recycling. Recycled cartridges have the same consistent yields and quality that the new cartridges have. Both use the same exact MICR Toner and volume by cartridge model, so the really big difference is the cost. Granted not all companies have the same quality standards when manufacturing recycled cartridges, but you can rest assured that our cartridges are one of the highest quality products, both new or recycled, in the industry.
A modified premium new MICR Toner is made by starting off with a brand new cartridge that has regular toner inside. The cartridge is then emptied of the original toner, and replaced with a special formulated MICR toner that contains more iron oxide than the original toner, as to increase the signal strength of the banks readers and sorters. The cartridge is then tested and the signal strength is read to insure the cartridge will perform at its highest level. The cartridge is then packaged and labeled for sale to the consumer as a MICR Toner.
Recycled MICR Toner is made by using just the plastic casing of a used cartridge. These cartridges are considered virgin (having only been used one cycle and has never been recycled) and have proven reliability by lasting through their first use. All internal parts and computer chips are removed and replaced with new components and chips, and filled with a special formulated MICR toner that contains iron oxide to increase the signal strength of the banks readers and sorters. The cartridge is then tested and the signal strength is measured for optimal performance. Once the cartridge has passed the quality test it is packaged and labeled as a recycled MICR Toner cartridge for sale to the consumer.
