- How long

have been in business for quite a while, at least in this
brand new industry. The name "Match Software" appeared for
the first time in the September issue of Byte, in 1987. We
used to run very tiny ads for a utility called
"Match-a-Printer", which helped PC users cope with their
printers. Shortly after, "MatchFonts" came to life, a
utility to get fonts from PC applications. Since then, we
have mainly produced TrueType and PostScript fonts for
Windows, Macintosh and OS/2.

Any basic scanner can pick up most cordless phones, and

answers some common technical questions, outlines the
definition of shareware, support, and general sales terms.

Software, member of the Association of Software
- Do I
absolutely need to use MICR toner ?
- Yes, if you
want the MICR strip to conform to current banking standards.
M.I.C.R. stands for "Magnetic Ink Character Recognition".
Without magnetic ink, there is no recognition. True, some
banks maybe using OCR readers, but there is no way to know
where a check will be processed, and in case of regular
rejects, banks will charge for manual handling. If some
cheap, over-the-counter, non-professional software prudently
never mention the requirement for magnetic ink, standards
cannot be neglected by serious users. In a corporate
environment, reliability and compliance are a must.
- Where do
I find MICR toner ?
- Good toner
suppliers usually have MICR toner. But we do list some
suppliers onto our links page,
where you can order online.
- How are
your fonts better than others ?
- We have
been delivering reliable and accurate MICR fonts since 1997,
which means we had ample time to work around hardware and
software limitations. We compiled an extensive knowledge
base, and can efficiently help you overcome installation and
usage needs. Our fonts have passed the exacting standards
verifiable by the Clear wave Electronics measuring gages.
For more about Clear wave Electronics, see our links
should I need a set of fonts ? Is not one enough ?
- Sure, in
ideal conditions, one font is often enough. If you do not
want anything else, we can even supply the single
MICR font by itself. Problem is, the PC world is far
from being perfect. Between changing drivers, changing
software, and printers tolerance, output is never quite
"what you see", and even less often exactly what is
instructed in the font. Our 15 fonts suite is the largest
set available, to work around any contingencies.
complex is it to print from my application, in a nutshell
- If you do
not feel like going though all the documentation available
on the site, let us say it is as simple as selecting the
right MICR font from the Fonts menu in any standard
application. Just as simple as selecting "MICRE13B Match",
instead of "Arial", or "Chicago". That's it !
- How do I
set up check printing from my database ?
- If you know
how to print an invoice or a report, you know how to
generate checks. All is needed is to place the MICR data at
the bottom of the check. Precise information is included in
the package, to help you with all this.
- I have
an application that requires a MICR font, but they want to
charge me a fortune.
software vendors, indeed, provide their own recommendation
or their own MICR font for their program. This is most
notoriously the case for Peachtree, and their solution costs
much, much more than our package. You cannot use our fonts
directly, BUT you can prepare pre-printed checks with our
package, and then use your accounting program with these
accounting software requires pre-printed check stock I
have to order.
- You can
prepare pre-printed checks with our package, and then use
your accounting program with these pre-printed checks. The
nice thing is that you do not have to order tons of it, and
prepare as much as you need only, as often as you need, from
your own printer.
- What if
it does not work ?
- The MICR
suite is provided under the concept of try-before-you-buy.
Which means you can download an evaluation version,
identical in essence to the final product (including the
MICR Calibration Wizard), except numbers 3, 6 and 9 are
replaced by a watermark that does not scan. Apart from that,
dimensions are identical, and you can play with it an do all
measurements, make sure it works fine, before you buy. We
highly recommend you proceed with the evaluation version,
before buying the complete package. If you do not feel
comfortable with this rather technical product, you may want
to consider staying safe with preprinted check.
- I need a
workable evaluation version before committing to a
multiuser or developer version
simplest way to proceed is to acquire the end-user package,
so you can play with it and submit output to any test you
deem necessary, for instance by running the checks through
your bank technical department. When it comes time to
purchase a large site license, or a custom unlimited copy
license, we'll take the amount of the end-user license off
your new acquisition.

package works fine on a regular configuration, and on a
regular printer, with the most usual software packages. If,
for any reason, it could not work on your specific
configuration, Match Software cannot be held responsible. As
technical combinations are almost infinite, and because
systems evolve in ways we cannot predict, it might happen a
new system, or a particular configuration, does not work
with a font. For instance, because a new version of the
system requires a new font format. In general, we will try
to keep up with the system versions, and eventually offer
upgrades, if possible, but it does not constitute an
obligation, nor would it be the case if you acquired a set
of seat covers for a specific car, and require they fit any
new car you may decide to buy later on.
