The use of thermal paper rolls as receipt paper is becoming more and more popular in all kinds of industries. For businesses that print out high volumes of credit card and other receipts, using thermal paper has made a significant reduction in office supply overhead. If you're looking for ways to cut down your office's spending, then you may want to consider switching to using thermal paper rolls instead of traditional bond.

What's the Difference?

Instead of relying on a printer ribbon to transfer ink to cash register paper, thermal paper rolls receive a flash of heat from the inside of the printer. This heat, interacting with the chemicals on the surface of the paper, causes the writing and graphics to appear on the receipt. In this way, the need for printer ink ribbons is eliminated, which can save your business a lot of money.

The machines that print onto thermal paper rolls also run much more quietly and quickly than traditional receipt and cash register printers. Their images can be much more sharp and crisp, which creates a better image for your business. If you're thinking about changing the way you buy and use your cash register supplies, you may want to switch to using thermal receipt paper.

Since using this type of paper is superior in many ways, many people mistakenly think that the paper itself will be more costly than regular bond paper. Instead, the opposite is true-great deals can be had on these paper rolls, especially in volume discounts from online suppliers. And, the money that you'll be saving on printer ribbon will also contribute to your savings.
