Thermal Receipt Printer (Additional)
Impact Receipt Printer
Impact receipt printers use a dot-matrix print head and ink ribbon to print text onto plain
paper. This print style allows for easy print duplicates like you would see with credit slips.
Printouts are more resistant to the elements, making these printers a great choice for kitchens,
dry cleaners, or any business where temperature and humidity could make thermal receipts
difficult to read. Impact printers also can be used for slip printing and check validation.
Inkjet Receipt Printer
Inkjet receipt printers offer similar functionality to home or personal inkjet printers, giving
you crisp, colorful receipts. Often these printers feature a combination of features including
check validation printing, making them a good fit for retailers or banks.
Purchase receipt paper by the roll or by the case. There are two types of receipt paper on the
market today: thermal receipt paper and plain receipt paper. Thermal paper is for use in receipt
printers that use heat driven or thermal printing while plain receipt paper is best for any
printer where the media is transferred to the paper. Dot matrix, impact and inkjet printers are
examples of printers that transfer ink onto the receipt paper itself without the use of heat.
Consult your receipt printer manual for the correct paper type for your printer.
Inkjet cartridges for POS printers and barcode label printers operate by dripping ink from a
cartridge onto the receipt or label paper. Much like home inkjet printers, POS inkjet receipt
printers usually feature more color options than standard thermal or impact printers. With the
correct printer and cartridge, multiple color printing is even possible. If your printer is not
listed here contact our sales specialists for assistance locating the correct ink cartridge for
your receipt printer or barcode printer.
