Impact Receipt Printers
Standard impact receipt printers, such as the Epson TM-U220, have been a mainstay at any retailer that experiences extreme temperature or humidity changes. Though louder and slower than thermal receipt printers, a good impact receipt printer will provide any business with a sturdy and reliable solution. Some features, like an auto cutter, add functionality but may limit the longevity of the printer.
For check endorsement or slip printing, these printers are a great alternative to a full multifunction receipt printer. Using the same print methods as a standard impact receipt printer, they provide easy access to insert media into the printer. Printers such as the TM-U295 and Star Micronics SP298 are ideal choices for slip printers.
Dot Matrix Printers
Dot matrix printers, such as the Epson FX-890, use tractor-fed paper, useful for invoices for services provided. Because of the design of dot matrix printers, you gain the advantage of multi-ply printing in a single printout, maintaining accuracy and minimizing liability.
