Glossary of Printing Terms:
MICR Clear Band

On a check, a band 5/8 inch up from the aligning edge of a check. The band runs parallel to that edge and extends the full length of the check. The MICR number for the check is imprinted in this area on the face of the check. This area must be free of any other magnetic printing to prevent problems from occuring when the MICR number is scanned. Also referred to as check clear zone.
