Relating to checks, bank drafts & credit cards
|CheckToner lets you deposit checks or drafts with a smartphone or tablet|
|Many banks and credit unions now allow deposits
of checks or bank drafts with smartphones or tablets.
If check is printed with regular toner (not MICR),
deposit is rejected.
Checks or bank drafts printed with CheckToner MICR
are accepted by smartphone apps as deposits.
ChecksNet did weeks of testing and confirmed our findings with different banks. It appears that photos taken with our phones can distinguish magnetic from non-magnetic toner. We suspect the difference is the reflective nature of magnetic metal particles contained in CheckToner. Regular laser toner does not contain magnetized metal.
NOTE: MICR toner from other suppliers may not contain the correct amount of magnetized particles so checks or bank drafts printed with them may also be rejected for deposit.
|CheckToner MICR passes bank testing even when toner density is reduced by 25%|
|ChecksNet specially formulates all MICR toner
for the CheckToner cartridges we sell. We
do this to assure customers of the HIGHEST
magnetic signal srength so checks will pass
tests at ANY bank on Earth.
On 4/16/2017, one customer reported her results of testing an app that reduces toner coverage by 25%. We investigated the Preton Print Saver. It may not work the same for all laser printers but if you try it and it works for you, please let us know.

|Banks going back to former ways: Requiring
MICR toner despite optical scanning
After decades when many banks and credit unions were converting equipment to scan checks optically, they are now requiring magnetic toner again. Here's why. With inkjet printers selling for $29, criminals have been inexpensively printing counterfeit checks using stolen bank information from unsuspecting victims. Liquid ink can't be magnetized unless metal particles are added to the liquid. We tested a "supposedly" magnetized inkjet cartridge. The metal in the ink clogged the print head and was completely worthless after printing only 9 checks.
Based on all the counterfeit checks in circulation, the latest ATM machines made by companies like Diebold, now scan deposited checks for magnetic content in the printed MICR symbols and numbers. If the check doesn't scan magnetically, the ATM machine REJECTS that item.
The ONLY guaranteed way of magnetizing the MICR line on a check or bank draft, is by printing it with a laser printer that uses a cartridge filled with MICR (magnetized) toner.
Furthermore, with many new laser printers capable of printing faster than 25 pages per minute, it is now more difficult to print checks with many printers unless the MICR toner has been specially formulated for that printer.. All laser printers generate heat because they contain a fuser wire that bonds the toner to paper using heat. Faster printers generate more heat. Adding metal particles to laser toner generates even more heat. Unless the MICR toner is properly formulated with a specific printer, it can overheat which results in damage to the printer and unacceptable print quality. This is why ChecksNet specially formulates ALL the MICR toner we supply in our CheckToner MICR cartridges. No other MICR cartridge supplier does this or has our CheckToner formulas.
There are MANY other websites selling MICR toner cartridges. Most have no idea what's really inside the cartridges they offer because they are simply resellers. We have documented proof that there are MICR cartridges being sold which will NOT scan magnetically so if you choose to buy a MICR cartridge from another supplier just because it might be cheaper, you may be buying toner that will not scan at banks or retail stores. Common sense should tell you that there is a reason why Dell, Lexmark, Okidata, Samsung and Xerox refer customers to ChecksNet for our CheckToner cartridges.
