Does it matter what check stock I use?

Yes. A poor quality paper interferes with the adhesion of toner and can lead to lower quality MICR documents.

The following are paper guidelines we recommend to our customers:

  • 24 lb. bond paper with a taber M.D. 2.5 and C.D. 1.1 minimum
  • Rougher surfaces within the base printer’s specifications for best toner fusing
  • Left to right grain direction
  • Micro-Perf (20 or more cuts per inch) perforations
  • A moisture content between 4.7% and 5.5%
  • Paper-based security features such as void pantographs and laid lines
