Thermal printing (or direct thermal printing) is a digital printing process which produces a printed image by selectively heating coated thermochromic paper, or thermal paper as it is commonly known, when the paper passes over the thermal print head.
With normal receipt paper, the 'ink' on paper will fade quickly, therefore we offer higher grade thermal paper that is water, heat and fade resistance and produce better print quality.
Can I use any thermal paper from stationery shops? Yes, however we don't recommend as those papers are low quality and designed for use in receipt printing, which means they will fade quickly.
Low quality papers may also leave paper residues inside the printer, which will reduce the lifespan and affect print results.
Our official PAPERANG PAPER are high contrast, water, heat and fade resistance and most importantly very affordable.
