For retail and hospitality business owners, the use of thermal paper is common. But, there are a number of variations when it comes to the quality of thermal paper rolls, and you need to choose the right one for your register, credit card processor, or a complete POS system.
What is Thermal Paper?
The paper that's used to record printed media from heat from the thermal printer is called thermal paper. This type of printing creates an image that's produced by heat rather than ink. The image is processed when the paper passes over the head of the thermal printer.
All thermal papers have a special coating, which changes color when exposed to heat. This transfer of heat, or thermal energy, is what causes an image to be created. Thus, thermal papers are also an economical choice as they don't require any ink ribbon or cartridge. In addition, thermal printers also don't require much maintenance; they're small, extremely handy, and compact.
