Hopefully this is the right place for this if not please move. I am the IT person for the Human Resources department of a very big university. Our HP printer that we use to print checks broke down and needs to be replaced. Today we had a meeting about getting a replacement and the payroll people said they use a special magnetic toner (MICR Toner) to print checks. This is new to me I never heard of it and I was trying my best to make it seem like I knew and understood what they were talking about but in reality I am lost. Can all laser printers accept this MICR Toner? Is it just a standard toner cartridge with a special toner, if so I would imagine you can use this special toner in any laser printer? How do you find out if MICR Toner is made for your printer? I don't want the university to spend money on a printer only to find out that MICR toner isn't made for it and therefore useless.
