Thermal or impact printer? No worries, Slurp! gets you covered

Posted on Jul 29, 2016 by Reza Razali

What we’ve discovered is that, some restaurant owners would prefer to print kitchen receipts on non- thermal paper because it can hold the wordings aka order items on a receipt better than thermal paper when it gets exposed to kitchen heat.

So for this purpose, some would resort to an impact printer.

As of recently, we have expanded our support to include this type of printer. This means, if you are running a restaurant and using Slurp!, you can start printing a kitchen receipt using an impact printer and on a non-thermal paper roll.
