Good Quality Thermal Paper Rolls are not as Expensive as Imagined by Some Folksby Pritam Singh Business
The use of thermal paper has been increasing ever since it first came into the market about half a century ago. It has revolutionized the POS (Point of Sale) billing process by speeding up the generation of receipts significantly. Thermal paper has effectively changed the way retail industry operates, especially the way bills are settled at the front office cash counter as well as how receipts of the customers are printed instantly. Reputed thermal paper rolls manufacturers make sure that they produce only non-BPA (Bisphenol A).
Why BPA-free thermal paper?
There is a growing necessity for the retail industry to be aware of the benefits and necessity of thermal paper without BPA coating. Unfortunately it is still not well-known that BPA is composed of hazardous chemical compounds that can seriously impact human health when one is exposed to it. POS personnel, as well as the customers are the ones who handle such thermal paper receipts regularly. A thermal paper roll supplier needs to take such facts into consideration before setting out to sell these papers in the market.
Uses of thermal paper in POS billing
Almost every POS location today offers receipts printed on thermal paper. From hotels and restaurants to retail stores and corner stores and from public transport buses to parking lots among others, all these POS locations dispense thermal paper receipts to their customers. This is a major improvement over the process they were following earlier when they used to issue hand-written receipts on pre-printed receipt books. This not only took time since it involved hand-writing but also manual setting of carbon paper to produce duplicates for accounting.
Process of printing on thermal paper
Printing on thermal paper doesn’t require an ink impression as it happens via heat transfer. The thermal coating on the substrate (paper) helps produce the print output when heat is applied through the printer head. The best thermal paper rolls manufacturers produce the kind of paper that offers great print output even when the thermal coating on it doesn’t contain BPA. It is a misperception to believe that thermal coating needs BPA to be able to produce the best quality printing possible on thermal paper.
