Printers for MICR Check Printing
We recommend that you print Mekorma checks to a dedicated medium – higher quality check printer using blank check stock. The printer should have the following capabilities:
- Speed of 45 ppm and up
- Two-tray capacity
- Recommended monthly printing volume of 5,000 pages and up
- Output capacity of 400 sheets and up
The HP M607 series printers combine exceptional performance and energy efficiency with professional-quality documents to use as dedicated check printers.
This printer series has a speed rating of 55 ppm. The 2-tray option makes it a perfect choice to print checks on one tray and overflows and remittances on the second. It has a recommended monthly volume of 5,000 to 20,000 pages and input / output capacity of 650 sheets / 500 sheets.
Mekorma in-house testing has been performed successfully on the HP M607dn model.
