Thermal Receipt Printer (Preferred)
Our preferred thermal receipt printers are the top-of-the-line receipt printers in terms of
speed, size, and price.These printers use heat on special paper to create text and images,
cutting down on the media you need to purchase.

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.
Multi-Function Receipt Printer
Multi-function receipt printers combine different printing styles into a single device, saving you space at your POS station. Usually a combination of thermal printer and slip printer, check validator, check reader, or franker, multi-function printers are great for grocers, banks, or any business that may take multiple forms of payment, including checks.
Portable Receipt Printer
A portable receipt printer empowers mobile sales forces and improves customer service in busy
retail and restaurant locations by offering wireless transaction processing outdoors, at the
table, in the field or anywhere a host POS system is not. Because battery life for mobile
receipt printers vary from 2 to 20 hours among manufacturers, as does durability and warranty.
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.
Receipt Printer Ribbon
Printer ribbons for impact printers are available for Epson, Star, Ithaca, Citizen, and more in a
variety of colors. You can locate the necessary printer ribbon part number in your receipt
printer user manual or sometimes on the used receipt roll itself. Alternatively you can call our
sales specialists for help locating the correct Printer ribbon.

POSMicro carries cables, paper, replacement printheads and other accessories for all our receipt

adapter or that replacement cutter that went out of stock three years past give one of our sales
specialists a call for assistance.
