Thermal paper is the paper most receipts are printed on. Every time you go to the grocery store or your favorite clothing store, a thermal printer shoots out a skinny receipt detailing your purchases. Just by looking at the smooth and shiny appearance of thermal paper, you can tell it’s different from regular printer paper.
So, what exactly is thermal paper, and how does it work?
Like its name implies, thermal paper is paper that requires a heat transfer to activate it. Here’s how it works:
1. Whenever a thermal printer is used, the printer head heats up
2. Depending on the words/numbers to be printed, certain pixels on the printer head are heated
3. This heat goes through the back of the printer ribbon
4. The ink/waxy substance on the ribbon then “melts” onto the thermal paper
