  • Carbonless paper

    Carbonless paper features a convenient two-ply design which produces both a yellow and a white copy. This results in both a copy for you and a copy for the customer. It works by using a traditional register printer with a standard register ribbon. The ribbon prints onto the first copy and the pressure  from the printing transfers a copy onto the second sheet for a duplicate print.



  • Thermal paper

    Thermal paper is a special fine paper which colors in reaction to a heat source. Typically, this paper will turn black when heated. Heat from the printer is directed in a specific and detailed manner to generate print writing.


  • Traditional paper

  • Traditional POS paper is printed upon with a standard register ribbon. It's ideal for situations where only one copy of a receipt is needed
