Receipt printers are an important part of your POS system. Consult your POS software provider for a list of compatible receipt printers.
Thermal Receipt Printers are the best choice for fast retail environments. They are virtually silent and print complete receipts in 1 to 2 seconds. Thermal printers use heat sensitive receipt paper, eliminating the need to purchase ink or ribbon cartridges. Thermal printers are not a good choice for hot kitchen environments. Kitchen heat may cause the thermal receipt to curl or fade.
Impact Receipt Printers use standard receipt roll paper and ribbons. They are heat resistant and ideal for restaurant kitchen environments. They can print on 2-ply receipt paper and many models offer printing in both black & red ink.
