Types of Custom Fonts

Bitmapped Signature or Logo
  • Print exactly the same size as the submitted artwork
  • Typically used by non-Windows applications that require a printer installed font
MICR(Magnetic Ink Character Recognition)
  • Used by the banking industry, this is the E-13B character set that allows printing of the numbers and characters on the bottom of checks, resulting in fast and reliable check processing.
  • MICR solutions are only used by non-Windows applications.
Bitmapped Signature or Logo
  • Print in a range of sizes from 6 to 72.
  • Scalable to user preference by sending a properly formatted PCL Escape Sequence to trigger the signature or logo.
  • Only used by non-Windows applications, require a printer installed font.
Soft Fonts
  • Signatures, Logos and MICR are available as Soft Fonts and delivered on a CD which is downloaded to the printer’s memory. Images are held in memory until the printer is powered off, and will need to be downloaded once power is restored.

For Windows environments, Signatures and Logos are created as True-Type fonts and easily added to Microsoft Windows. Once installed under Windows, the font is available as a standard font selection. Users will have the ability to access the font in applications such as Crystal Reports and Microsoft Office. MICR is not available for Windows applications.

Printer Support

Bitmapped, Scalable and MICR fonts (other than soft fonts) are provided on Host USB, compact flash or DIMM devices and are installed inside a printer. They are not supported by external USB connections.
