New Product: MICR Toner for HP LaserJet M507 Series (CF289A and CF289X MICR)

Thursday, May 28th, 2020 | MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

We are finally releasing a CF289A and CF289X MICR Toner (Magnetic) for check printing. HP released this printer over a year ago, but until now, we’ve been unable to release a qualified product. Our new CF289A/X MICR toner cartridge produces perfect prints and is designed to meet both ABA and ANSI standards.

HP CF289A New MICR Toner Cartridge
HP CF289A MICR Toner Cartridge

We have both the standard yield (5,000 pages) and the high yield (10,000 pages) versions of this MICR toner cartridge.

This is a new modified toner cartridge, meaning we’ve taken a brand new HP CF289A or CF289X toner and removed the original toner and replaced it with MICR toner. Thankfully both the standard and high yield versions fit in all of the printers.

Both cartridges are available at www.advlaser.com
New Standard Yield CF289A MICR Toner Cartridge – $230 (5,000 Pages)
New High Yield CF289X MICR Toner Cartridge – $340 (10,000 Pages)

New Product: HP CF258A & CF258X MICR Toner for the LaserJet M404 Series

Sunday, August 11th, 2019 | MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

August 5, 2019 – We’ve released New MICR Toner for the HP LaserJet M404n, M404dn, M404dw. Both of these cartridges are new MICR toner cartridges. These are genuine new HP cartridges where we’ve replaced the original toner with MICR (Magnetic) toner. MICR toner cartridges are filled with a proprietary magnetic toner for printing checks with laser printers. The M404 line of printers is a direct replacement for the LaserJet M402 series. Specifications for this printer are virtually identical to it’s predecessor and both printers can print up to at 40 pages per minute.

CF258A & CF258X MICR Toner now available for the new HP LaserJet M404dn

The CF258A MICR Toner Cartridge has a page yield of 3,000 pages and sells for $170.00 each.
https://www.advlaser.com/MICR-Toner-For-HP-M404-M428-CF258A-p/rccf258anm.htm

The CF258X MICR Toner Cartridge is a high yield toner cartridge has a page yield of 10,000 pages and sells for $310 each.
https://www.advlaser.com/MICR-Toner-For-HP-M404-M428-CF258X-p/rccf258xnm.htm

If you do the math, the CF258X MICR Toner Cartridge is by far the most cost efficient. But if you only write a few checks a year, the CF258A may be your best bet.

We’ve sold hundreds of the LaserJet M402n MICR laser printers and they have been very reliable. We expect the M404n to be as reliable as it’s predecessor. At the moment we continue to sell the M402n MICR laser printer but eventually we plan to sell a LaserJet M404n MICR Laser Printer.

HP Released New LaserJet M404 Series – CF258A MICR Toner in development.

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019 | MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

HP just released the new LaserJet M404 series laser printer. There doesn’t appear to be any reason for HP to release this printer as the specs are identical to the M402 series printers. Same speed, same look, same size – different toner cartridges. Still this will be a big seller as small business continue to buy small inexpensive reliable monochrome printers. The M402 series has had a decent track record and we’ve sold hundreds of these printers retrofitted with MICR toner cartridges for check printing.

HP LaserJet M404n

The M404 Series consists of the M404n, M404dn, M404dw as well as the M428fdn, M428dw and M428fdw MFP (Multi Function) machines.

The M404 takes the new CF258A (3,000 Pages) and the CF258X (10,000 Pages) toner cartridges. The high yield toner cartridge is by far the best value.

To order the CF258A or CF258X online, the links are below.

Genuine HP CF258X Toner Cartridge

We are developing MICR Toner for CF258A and CF258X to be used for check printing. At this point we don’t have a date that this will be available. But we will target August 2019.

New Product: Advantage Ultimate Holographic Checks

Thursday, October 25th, 2018 | MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

A 3D Hologram is fused to each check.

We’ve been working for some time on a new check that is virtually impossible to alter or copy. We call this new check Advantage Ultimate. For the moment, we only have it in a Top Check with a Blue to Green to Blue fade. This particular check layout used by QuickBooks and VersaCheck is by far our most popular. Advantage Ultimate Check Stock is loaded with security features including:

  • Hologram – Each check has a 3D hologram fused to the paper.
  • Chemical Protection Paper – When chemically altered, the area treated will appear as a brown stain or spot.
  • Toner Adhesion – Paper is treated so that once toner is fused it will reveal attempted tape-lifting or scraping.
  • Micro-Printing – Small type in border, under endorsement area and surrounding Padlock Security box appears blurred if copied or scanned.
  • Check Security Watermark – When copied: Absence of the words “Original Document” on the back of the check.
  • Fluorescent Fibers – Visible only under ultraviolet light.
  • Check Security Screen – When copied: Absence of the words “Original Document” on the back of this check.
  • Heat Sensitive Ink – Red image of padlock will fade with heat. Rub, hold between finger and thumb or breathe on image for reaction.
  • Coin Reactive Ink – Key will appear underneath coin image when rubbed with a coin.

This is the best check paper money can buy. Yes it’s pricey starting at $130 / 1,000, but if you need the best protection from alteration available, this is it.

Our Part # CP815-BGB

Software Compatibility: QuickBooks Pro, Quicken, VersaCheck 1000, plus many others.

Kathleen Boyer, Office Administrator – Harris & Ruth Painting

Harris & Ruth Painting is one of the top commercial and industrial painting contractors located in West Covina, California. Kathleen Boyer, the company’s Office Administrator, was looking for a way to save her company money.

She found Advantage Laser Products online while doing her research on check printing. Learning how to print your own checks with a magnetic ink can be a tricky process, and so Kathleen decided to call Advantage for help.

“I called and spoke with John Miller, who educated me on the MICR font and ink requirements, and then worked with me to make sure my MICR font and placement was perfect, and my ink strength was perfect,” she said. “It was such a positive experience.”

Kathleen continues to enjoy personalized customer service from Advantage – she says she loves working with Advantage because, “they work hard, like me.”  But most importantly, printing checks in-house brings Harris & Ruth Painting substantial savings every year.

The Story of Advantage Laser Products

The company began in Tuscaloosa, Alabama when Brian Chaney and Marvin Masson, two college friends, partnered to launch a desktop printing company in 1987. After their Apple Laser Writer printer cartridge ran out of toner, they learned about how to refill printer cartridges and decided to start Advantage Laser Products. In 1992, John Miller merged his software company with Advantage Laser Products and in 1994 the company moved to Atlanta, Georgia. Since that time, the three have worked in close partnership and have built the company with a dedicated team, where more than two thirds of their employees have been with the company for over 15 years. Employees all agree, it’s an amazing place to work with a diverse team of employees from a range of backgrounds, who all believe in hard work and playing hard as well.

Business Checks Survey Report

Thursday, November 30th, 2017 | MICR Toner and Check Printing | No Comments

Advantage Laser Products conducted a survey to determine the dominant business function for checks, the prevalence of MICR-printing of checks by U.S. businesses, and the prevalence of check fraud and the use of positive pay check fraud prevention.

Check payment solutions play a critical role in the financial management of most organizations. Checks are intrinsic to the behavior of U.S. businesses and government agencies, and most organizations have structured their entire treasury management infrastructure around checks, from paying invoices to matching transactions. We believe there are three main reasons for why over 87% of our survey respondents’ organizations continue to use checks:

  1. Checks simply contain a lot more information than electronic payments, and may even have entire invoices attached to them. Checks simply contain a lot more information than electronic payments, and may even have entire invoices attached to them.
  2. Checks offer a cash flow advantage, by delaying the payment while the check is in the mail and during authentication process, often translating to days if not weeks of additional liquidity and interest income on cash.
  3. And with the use of very effective check fraud prevention solutions, such as positive pay, checks are also a safer payment solution than electronic payments, which are subject to hacking and cyber theft.

Until the security is enhanced in prevailing electronic payment methods, and an external, regulatory action forces a rapid transition to electronic transactions, many U.S. businesses will continue to use checks as the preferred payment solution.
