Can thermal paper be printed with a dot matrix printer?

- Dec 08, 2019-

The printing principle of the dot matrix printer is to print with ink through the pinhole. Theoretically, it can be printed on any paper. It is best to use double adhesive writing paper or copy paper, because ordinary writing paper has better ink absorption performance.


The printing surface of the thermal paper is smooth and has a protective coating. Printing with a dot-matrix printer will cause ink to drop off easily. In addition, the tension of the thermal paper is different from that of ordinary carbonless paper writing paper, which is printed with a dot-matrix printer. Easy to puncture or break paper.


The price and cost of thermal paper is more expensive than double adhesive paper or carbonless paper. In order to save costs, do not use a dot-matrix printer to print thermal paper.
