Thermal paper is a special type of paper that is coated with chemicals on the outside and this chemical helps the paper to change color when it is exposed to heat. We can print on thermal paper without the use of ink or ribbon. That’s why the thermal paper has more and more widespread use in our daily life.
When we shop in a large supermarket, we will get a small ticket after payment which records the item we bought, quantity, and price. This ticket is the thermal paper, also named as thermal till roll, cash register paper, thermal receipt, and so on.
Thermal paper is also widely used in bank ATM machines. When we complete the transaction on the ATM, we usually print the receipt. On the face side is the record of the transaction and the bank name, on the backside is the terms and black sensor mark.
