Selecting the best thermal materials for your documents and receipts is very important. While they look similar, the chemical make-up of each material affects its lifespan. Therefore, you should consider the following when selecting a material.
Heat Exposure - If your document will be exposed to temperatures higher than 140 degrees F (60 degrees C), you will need to choose a material that is heat-resistant, such as our 8000D High-Temp 3.2mil Receipt.
Moisture - Determine how much, if any, moisture your document is going to be subjected to.
Topcoating - Provides a layer of protection for the image.
Thickness - The thicker the material, the less paper per roll, resulting in fewer documents that can be printed before the roll needs to be changed.
Archivability - Determine how long the receipt will need to last when stored under published archival duration specifications.
Pre-printed Receipts - ERS can manufacture custom receipt paper and pre-print your company logo, watermarks, fields or other text.
