Produce precise, secure prints with the MICR option1.

Enable fast, accurate document processing with the HP Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) solution. Signal strength meets the ANSI X9.100-20-2006 standard. The self-contained solution includes HP MICR inks that can be replaced on-the-fly while the press is running.
