Teach you how to buy cash register thermal paper
The cash register uses thermal paper, also known as receipt printing paper, as the information carrier of customer consumption records and checkout amount.
Because the daily consumption of thermal paper used in the cashier is not large, many buyers sometimes do not pay attention to the purchase, which leads to the purchase of some inferior thermal paper used in the cashier of the printer, which affects the work efficiency and even consumes the printer.
Among some customers contacted by Guanwei manufacturers, we have found some problems, and we will summarize them here, hoping to help users who often buy thermal paper for cashiers.
Question 1: The cash register thermal paper we bought is very cheap, only 50-60 yuan for a box of 100 rolls. Why are yours so expensive?
The customer showed us the thermal paper used in the cash register, and found that the actual diameter of the thermal paper used in the cash register of 57*50 size is only 45mm. The paper is 65g-70g thick paper, the paper surface is rough, the color is too white, and the coating is uneven. The paper is scratched by fingers, the color is discontinuous, and the shades are different.
Guanwei manufacturers suggest: you get what you pay for, but there are also some inexpensive ones. But if the price of thermal paper used at the cash register is ridiculously low, there must be a trap. For example, the thermal paper used in the cash register as analyzed above has insufficient actual diameter, large tube core and thick paper, which directly leads to the use of thermal paper for the cash register that is less than one meter in length, which is very different. For example, the thermal paper for cash registers produced by Suzhou Guanwei Thermal Paper Co., Ltd. has the same specifications, 57*50, full diameter, 55g-62g paper, small tube core (tube core paper tube and hose, tube core size is different), The total length of the paper can be 22-28m or even 30m. The actual measured total length of the thermal paper provided by the customer for the cashier is only about 12-13 meters. Rice and paper are poor, of course, the cost will be much lower, which is why some customers can buy very cheap thermal paper for cashier counters.
Question 2: The thermal paper used at the cash register is a consumable item and cannot bring direct profits to the company, so we are very concerned about cost control. I want good and cheap thermal paper to put at the checkout. Can you provide it?
Good and cheap thermal paper for the cash register is what everyone wants. For small and medium-sized supermarkets, convenience stores, and catering operators, this kind of daily consumer goods cannot bring direct profits to enterprises, and the investment amount will not be too large. Therefore, it is easy to ignore some questions about the choice of cashier thermal paper. Professional knowledge, thus falling into the misunderstanding of "low-price winning".
Guanwei manufacturers suggest: In fact, from the point of view of commercial operation, when choosing a thermal paper for the cash register, it is not only necessary to pay attention to the low price, but also to the cost performance. To choose cost-effective thermal paper for the cash register, we think the following aspects can be considered:
1. Meters of thermal paper used at the cash register
The meter is the total length of a roll of thermal paper at the cash register. According to the paper loading frame of the thermal paper for the cash register, select the specification of the thermal paper for the cash register that we need, such as 57*50mm, then we can first evaluate whether this roll of thermal paper for the cash register is enough, and prepare a Ruler, 57mm refers to the width of the paper, 50 refers to the diameter of the entire roll of paper, if the diameter is smaller, the shorter the meter of the thermal paper used for the cash register; secondly, the tube core in the roll of paper. The larger the die, the shorter the overall length of the cash register thermal paper. Then, look at the thickness of the thermal paper used at the cash register. The thicker the paper, the shorter the meter of thermal paper used at the cash register. Here we provide the parameters of the most commonly used thermal paper for cashier counters produced by Guanwei manufacturers for reference, 57*50 full diameter, using paper with an outer diameter of 17mm, an inner hole of 13 mm, and 55 g of all-wood pulp thermal paper. The total length of the cash register thermal paper is 28 meters.
So, what effect will the length of a roll of thermal paper have on the cashier? The most direct impact is that the longer the thermal paper used at the cash register, the longer the usage time, the less the number of paper changes of the thermal paper used at the cash register, and the higher the work efficiency. Especially when the queue is busy, if the thermal paper used at the cashier needs to be replaced frequently, it will delay customers' time and affect their consumption experience. And every time the paper is changed, a trial printing is required, and the front and rear ends are wasted, thereby increasing the cost.
Second, the quality of thermal paper used for cashier
In the communication with customers, we often find that some customers have a misunderstanding, that is, the whiter the thermal paper used at the cashier, the better. In fact, on the contrary, if the thermal paper used in the cash register is too white, it means that the thermal paper used in the cash register has added too much fluorescent powder, and its coating is unreasonable. A better thermal paper used in the cash register should be greenish. Secondly, it depends on whether the thermal paper used in the cashier is flat and whether the color development is uniform. The color development can be tested directly with a printer, or you can simply brush the thermal paper at the cashier with a fingernail to see if the color development is clear and even.
The quality of thermal paper used at the cashier is related to the printing quality, the shelf life of handwriting, and machine wear and tear. If the quality of the thermal paper used at the cashier is too poor and the color is not clear, it will give customers the illusion of consumption. Customers may even judge the quality of products sold in supermarkets because of the quality of the thermal paper used at the checkout and the clarity of the printing, which will directly affect the image of your business. Secondly, the inferior thermal paper used at the cash register is also easy to damage the printer, causing troubles such as paper jams and damage to the print head.
To sum up, we choose thermal paper for cash register with high cost performance, and make a comprehensive evaluation from the material and quality of the paper. In addition, it is also necessary to consider the service issues of the factory for the cashier thermal paper, such as delivery time, response speed, after-sales service, etc. We recommend that you choose a regular professional thermal paper manufacturer for cashier cooperation.
