Glossary of Printing Terms:
Check Clear Zone

An area 5/8” up from the bottom edge of the check which runs the full width. There should be no magnetic ink printed in this area other than the MICR encoded number. This allows the encoding of the magnetic numbering to be read accurately by the scanning equipment. Regular ink printed in this area must not block out the MICR number. Also referred to as MICR clear band.
