Thermal Paper FAQs
What Kinds of Machines Print on Thermal Paper? - Most commonly, thermal paper is used to print receipts at credit card and point of sale (POS) terminals, like pay-at-the-pump systems at gas stations. Some cash registers have printers built-in, others will connect to a separate receipt printer unit. You’ll also find thermal printing on ATMs, lottery ticket printers, parking meters, back-of-house restaurant ticket printers, at dry cleaners, and a whole lot more.
Does Thermal Paper Need Ink? - Thermal printers can be extremely compact because they don’t require ink. Instead, thermal paper specially reacts chemically to the printer head to change the color of the paper itself. Ordinary paper won’t work in a thermal printer. That’s why you need specialized rolls from a supply partner like Richmond Advantage!
What Is Thermal Paper? - Thermal paper is special paper made with thermochromic chemicals like Fluoran and Leuco – meaning the paper changes color when exposed to heat. Instead of adding ink to paper, the printer head in a thermal printer adds only heat, causing the paper to change color whereas the printer head heats the paper to about 212 degrees. Thermal paper also features a protective coating that gives receipts that slick, smooth texture you’re familiar with and prevents the resulting text and images from fading.
