Do you want to print a receipt on real receipt paper? Do you need your receipt to look as realistic as possible? If you have a receipt image that you have created using ExpenseFAST receipt maker, you can print your receipt to real receipt paper using a thermal printer.

What are Thermal Receipt Printers?

Thermal printers are used to print nearly all receipts you receive from shops, restaurants and service companies. These printers use heat to change the paper color from white to black. Thermal printers utilize rolls of thermal paper and have a sharp serrated edge to cut the receipt from the roll.

Thermal receipt printers come in a variety of models. Some thermal printers are USB or wireless (wifi) while others are Bluetooth enabled. These Bluetooth models are often portable to allow for easy usage in the field. They are perfect for printing receipts at home because they easily connect to your mobile device (iPhone or Android) or your computer.
