ATM thermal paper roll printing

At present, the ATM receipt paper used in the banking system is basically printed on thermal paper. Most ATM receipt papers have forms printed on the front and advertisements on the back.

ATM receipt paper printing belongs to roll-type receipt printing. Since the base paper is thermal paper, it is also called thermal paper printing. The most common specification for each small piece of ATM receipt paper is 79*101.6mm, and 101.6mm is one third of the 12-inch full-rotation receipt printing machine, which is a relatively common specification.

ATM receipt printing, although it is roll printing, its printing color development principle is the same as that of lithographic printing, and it is a color formed by CMYK four-color overprinting.

  1. Positioning mark:

The black color block on the left side of the front of the thermal paper is called thermal paper printing black mark positioning. It is printed with solid black UV and the density should not be less than 95%. Ensure that the ATM receipt is recognized by the device’s cursor recognition probe during printing.

If the printing density of the thermal paper black mark positioning mark is not enough, or the position is incorrect, it will cause the ATM receipt printer to continuously output paper. It also leads to waste of the entire roll of thermal paper.

  1. Raw material selection:

ATM receipt paper is made of thermal paper as raw material for printing and slitting. The thermal paper itself is a printing paper with a chemical coating. Its printing surface will be oxidized by air and undergo a chemical reaction. Poor quality thermal paper will appear unclear after a short storage time.

Therefore, ATM receipt paper must be printed on two-time coated thermal paper, and the surface protective film needs to be produced through a formal process.


  1. Distribution and packaging:

If the surface of the thermal paper collides, it will cause friction, heat generation, and color development. Therefore, professional thermal paper packaging methods must be used to prevent light, sun, moisture, and high temperature. the distribution and carton packaging must be shock-proof and space-proof.
