Save a Bundle on Ink
Over the lifetime of an inkjet or dot-matrix receipt printer, you can expect the cost of replacement ink to add up to several times the original purchase price of the device. With a thermal printer, there’s no ink to replace. While plain receipt paper is slightly less expensive than thermal paper, the cost nearly doubles when it has a company logo pre-printed on it – something a thermal printer can do for free. In total, you can expect to save hundreds of dollars on supplies.
Better Visual Printing Options
Dot-matrix receipt printers are limited in terms of graphic output, and even inkjet devices have problems printing complex designs due to drying time. A thermal device can easily print any visual element you want on a receipt-by-receipt basis, whether it’s a logo, an image of a check, or any other targeted message for the customer.
It’s Just Faster!
The speed of ink ribbon and inkjet printers is limited by how fast the print head can move back and forth across the document before going on to the next line. A thermal device prints the entire line at once, so the printing speed is essentially the same as the fastest speed that the paper can scroll. At almost 10 inches per second, it’s nearly impossible to find a faster print speed on your countertop.
