The Importance of POS Paper Roll for Printers at Retail Stores

by Pritam Singh Business

The physical POS (Point of Sale) is still a very important place of everyday trade and commerce despite the progress made by ecommerce. A very large number of people still visit malls and real marketplaces to make purchases of not just non-essential items like additional pieces of garments and shoes, or electronic products like TV sets and game consoles among others. This article will discuss the importance of POS paper rolls in today’s retail outlets. 

Managing crowded cash counters efficiently

The retail stores selling essential items like household groceries, green groceries, medical supplies, etc. see a lot of footfalls and crowded cash counters that efficiently manage the rush with receipts printed instantly on POS billing printers. POS billing requires a special kind of paper that must fit into the printer used at the retail cash counter. There are POS paper roll suppliers who manufacture a wide range of such paper products depending on the kind of printers that are in use at the POS location. For instance, there are thermal paper printers and normal paper printers that use different technologies and will require the kind of paper that is suitable for the respective printers.

Important variant of POS billing paper

Thermal paper has a chemical coating on the side to be printed, also known as the substrate. In view of recent research on the nature of this chemical coating on the thermal paper, it has now come to light that a chemical solvent known as BPA (Bisphenol A) is used in the process of thermal coating of the paper. All research done on BPA speaks of the harmful effects it can have on humans who are exposed to it for a prolonged period of time. Unfortunately, most POS paper roll suppliers still haven’t taken it seriously and are still selling thermal paper with BPA coating without bothering to inform buyers about the preventive healthcare measures before handling such paper.

At the same time there are some reputed POS paper roll suppliers who have taken these research reports seriously enough. They are now manufacturing BPA-free thermal paper that produces the same or better printing output but without the risks that BPA coated thermal paper poses. For the sake of individuals who continue to use BPA coated thermal paper, it is necessary that they wash their hands with soap and water immediately after handling such paper, especially before having food.
