The two keys to buying paper rolls are 1) not overpaying, and 2) finding a roll that fits your machine. At Restaurant Discount Warehouse, you don't have to worry about either. We keep our overhead low in order to offer you the best prices available and we have created this handy guide to help you find the thermal paper rolls and receipt paper you need:
Finding the right thermal paper rolls or receipt paper that fit your machine can be a little confusing. Please use this step-by-step guide to make the process a bit easier. You're just a few simple steps from identifying the right product.
First, determine whether you use thermal paper or bond paper. Most POS systems and credit card printers use thermal rolls. If you are buying POS paper or credit card paper, and if you are not using a really old machine, you probably want thermal paper rolls.
On the other hand, if you are using an old fashioned cash register or adding machine, you may be looking for plain bond register paper.If you have to put a ribbon in your machine, you know you need bond paper. Unlike thermal paper, which contains heat sensitive ink directly in the paper, register paper is totally plain, and it requires a ribbon to imprint ink onto the paper.
Once you're certain the type of paper you need, click one of the subcategories below: a) Thermal paper rolls, b) Single-ply bond paper rolls, or c) Two-ply carbonless paper rolls. (You can use the two-ply rolls on any machine that takes the single-ply rolls. The second ply allows you to have two copies of whatever has been printed.) This will take you to a list of available sizes.
From the list of sizes, you need to select the roll with the proper width and length for your printer. Most printers require a roll of a specific width so that it will work properly. If the paper is too wide it won't fit into the allotted space, and if it is too narrow it won't turn correctly on the axle.
You generally have more flexibility in selecting the length of your paper rolls. Choosing a longer length generally allows modest cost savings, but if you choose one that's too long, the diameter could be too large for your machine. You can easily see the diameter of all our rolls on the page listing the different size options.
Once you've selected the right roll, you can place your order with confidence. It will ship out the same day, and we guarantee that it will work for you. If you choose a roll that doesn't work, you can return or replace it free of charge, including shipping costs. So go ahead and place your order today!
