Magnetic ink, containing minuscule particles of magnetically susceptible materials, can align with a magnetic field when applied to a surface. This alignment generates a visible design that serves purposes such as information storage.

Magnetic ink is often combined with a magnetic reader for easy scanning and reading of text in publications like books.

In the printing and bookbinding industries, magnetic ink finds usefulness in various facets. It facilitates printing checks and documents meant for scanning by magnetic readers. Furthermore, it aids in creating barcodes, labels, and even security markings as an anti-theft measure.

The primary objective behind using magnetic ink is to enhance scanability and readability. Individuals can effortlessly comprehend text without directly examining the page by employing a magnetic reader alongside this type of ink. Books and other printed materials frequently employ magnetic ink for improved accessibility.

Its advantages over traditional ink are enhanced legibility, increased durability, and resistance against smudging or damage caused by water or fading – while still not without disadvantages such as heightened cost, availability challenges, ease-of-use concerns during application, or storage management difficulties.
