When equipping a restaurant, convenience store, retail establishment, or other business, every business owner must make a variety of right choices. One critical decision that any owner must make early on is which point of sale (POS) device & compatible hardware would best service its consumers and satisfy the company's needs. Luckily, this decision is a simple one.

 

The benefits of POS systems, thermal printers, thermal paper, etc., are well established and undisputed, making them a convenient choice for organizations of all kinds and sizes. Among the many advantages of these types of equipment are reliability, durability, silent operation, speed, print quality, & low operation cost.

 

Reliability & Durability

 

Thermal printers are more reliable & durable by having very few moving parts relative to other printer types. Fewer moving parts equates to fewer opportunities for failure on a day-to-day basis and less wear & tear on the printer over the long term. That long-term durability is further enhanced because thermal printers are "non-impact" printers. In other words, there is no printer head striking against a ribbon.

 

Thermal printers work by selectively applying heat to the paper, impregnated with heat-sensitive ink that essentially "melts" to create text, numbers, and images on the receipt. Because there is no impact between the printhead and the paper or ribbon, there is virtually no wear on the printhead and fewer paper jams.

 

Silent Operation

 

The absence of a hammering printhead means thermal printers are noticeably quieter than other alternatives. Restaurateurs, spa owners, book store curators, and other businesses that rely on ambiance are especially appreciative of the silent operation.

 

No one wants to distract patrons from a good meal or a gripping book with the grating buzz of a noisy receipt printer. That said, even bustling retail environments can benefit from having one less thing contributing to the white noise in their business environment.

 

Print Quality

 

All business owners can appreciate the importance of print quality in the receipts they hand to their customers. Receipts printed by thermal printers are crisp, clear, and easy to read leave a positive & lasting impression. Receipts that smudge, fade, or are otherwise unreadable when your customer wants to record a transaction are frustrating & annoying. Not the impression you want to make.

 

The print quality of the thermal printer is unmatched, so you can rest easy that your customers will be as happy with their purchase when it comes time to record it as they were when they decided to make it. As thermal printing makes it easy to add logos and other images to your receipts, you'll know that each receipt you send out the door will serve to reinforce your brand affinity.

 

High Speed - Low Cost

 

With all this talk about quality, it would be easy to conclude that thermal printers are slower or more costly to operate than their counterparts. After all, quality takes time, and you get what you pay for, right? Yes, most of the time. But the thermal printer is one of those exceptions.

 

Despite the superior reliability, durability, & print quality of thermal printers, they actually operate faster than other printers & cost less to maintain. Again, that goes to fewer moving parts, fewer consumables (no ribbons or ink cartridges to buy), & fewer breakdowns and service calls.
