How to Print on Thermal Till Rolls
The custom printed thermal paper is accomplished by technology of flexography. The printed image is transferred to the paper directly through printing plate. Here is the picture of manufacturing process.
As you can see, the printing plate is wound on cylinder. In the printing plate, the image or printing area is raised above the non-image areas. So the raised part is easily printed on thermal paper. In this case, one printing plate is for one color printing.
Design the Printing Plate
The length of printing plate is according to cylinder. We have a couple of cylinders to meet customer requirement. When we design the plate, we can put as more ads as possible.
1)Thermal Paper Back Print
Actually, there’s no much restriction on back print. 1-5 colors is OK. Normally, we just print advertisements on back side of thermal paper. Thermal front side needs to be printed with sales transaction information. There’s no much space to print full color advertisement freely.
2)Thermal Paper Front Print
As you know, thermal front side is for merchants to print transaction information. To draw attention from customer, the front side can be also printed with advertisements. To print clearly and attract attention at the same time, there’s 3 tricks for you.
a. Print on 2 sides of front side
b. Print as watermark or very light color, not to effect the print
c. Adjust POS system to leave space for permanent printing and sales transaction content separately
