MICR SPECIFICATION SHEET
For your customers who are not able to provide a cancelled check from which to design their check, you should require that a "MICR Specification Sheet" be provided. If the bank does not provide one, the customer should ask their bank to fill this out, or as a last resort fill this out under the bank's direction.
We've provided room at the top of this PDF sheet for you to personalize with your business name and information.
