We supply rolls that will fit in to all the major card terminals including Verifone, Elevon, Fortronic, Streamline, Barclays, Ingenico and Hypercom.
Cash Register Rolls
Cash register rolls can be either thermal single ply or normal paper in either single or duplicate paper. The more modern tills generally use thermal paper that does not require a ribbon. Older cash registers would usually use standard rolls in sinle ply or duplicate. The sizes of cash register rolls can vary, however the most popular sizes are 44x80mm, 57x57mm, 76x76mm and 80x80mm. These are all available in thermal and standard paper. The thermal rolls and paper rolls that Octopus supply are compatible with Casio, Sharp, Olivetti and Sanyo cash registers.
Kitchen Printer Rolls
Kitchen printers generally take one of 2 types of rolls, either a 76x76mm in single part, 2 part duplicate or 3 part triplicate. These are suitable for use in Star, Epson & Micros kitchen printers. Other printers use a thermal roll, which is 80x80mm, this has now become the most common paper roll for EPOS machines and cash register receipts. If you run a restaurant or shop and are unsure of the size that you need, give us a call and we can help.
Thermal Printer Rolls
Thermal printers do not require a ribbon cartridge to print onto the paper as the image is burnt on using tiny elements. In contrast however, a printer using standard paper that would require either an ink roller, ribbon cartridge or spooled ribbon to create the image on the paper.
