Fax Supplies For Your Machine
If you have a modern fax machine or an old model that is no longer made, we can generally supply the fax machine supplies for it. Whether it is an old Panasonic fax that uses paper rolls, or a Samsung that needs an inkjet cartridge, we can usually source it for you.
When fax machines first emerged and became popular in offices in the late 1980’s, they used thermal paper rolls. There were 2 standard widths of paper, either 210mm or 216mm wide. There were 2 standard lengths too, those being 30m long and 100m.
The most popular fax machines at the time were Panasonic, Samsung NEC and Canon. The lager machines would have a cutter to trim the sheets to A4 size as they were printed. The smaller models would sometimes print the fax messages out in long strips and you would need to tear the paper off or trim it afterwards, if it was a multiple page fax.
Fax Rolls Supplied
Fax Cartridges – Inkjet
The early plain paper fax machines used inkjet technology. This type of fax machine was basically an inkjet printer with a fax machine bolted onto it. The plain paper fax machine made the thermal machines redundant as the paper was easier to handle and store and most importantly, it didn’t fade in the light.

Fax Cartridges – Laser
Businesses that send and received many faxes per day opted for the laser fax. It printed quicker and more often than not the modem was quicker too. The laser cartridges printed many more pages than the inkjet variety and therefore made the fax machine supplies cheaper. The toner was dry on the page immediately, where as inkjet could take a few seconds to completely dry meaning it could be placed in pockets or files immediately.

Fax Cartridge – Ink Film
The Thermal transfer fax machines have the advantage of being very clean and you know exactly how many faxes you will get out of a cartridge. The downside is that they are generally more expensive than laser fax machine supplies and they can be a little fiddly if you use the cheap refil cartridges. Octopus supply the refils and original ink film rolls for thermal transfer faxes.
