Low Price Guarantee

Low Price Guarantee, Lowest Price Guarantee, Cheapest Till Rolls In Ireland, Cheap Till Rolls, Best Till Roll Prices in Ireland, We will Price Match and Beat any competition in Ireland. What does this really mean?

Paper is bought by the meter. The only way to make the rolls cheaper is to shorten the roll length. This is done in many ways without you (the buyer) actually seeing any difference in the roll size. The most common way to do this is using a heavier paper. Depending on what paper weight and paper grade that is used, this can make length of the paper  as much as 40% Shorter.

When we see competitors selling rolls at 15%, 20% or 25% cheaper we know that we are not comparing like for like (Apples & Oranges), as this is our profit margin and sometimes below our buying cost. It cant be done!

All our paper comes from European paper mills and is BPA FREE Grade A thermal paper, approved by all the major OEM (original equipment manufacturers) guaranteed not to damage your printers print heads. Cheap imported thermal paper can damage the sensitive thermal print heads in your pos printer, shortening the life span of your printer. Printers are VERY EXPENSIVE!

Correct storage of Thermal Paper

THERMAL PAPER. All image stability guarantees on Thermal apply only if paper is stored and used according to these instructions. If selecting a thermal paper grade for an application where there is risk of contact with harmful materials or paper needs to have good preservable properties, please contact our customer service for assistance on selecting a suitable paper from our range of standard and extra long life grades.
 
1. Avoid hot and humid environment
  • For long-term storage, store thermal paper in the dark at an average ambient temperature of less than 25°C and a relative humidity of less than 65%.
  • Thermal paper begins to develop colour at between 60°C to 100°C and reaches applicable density at between 70°C to 120°C. The paper, however, displays similar signs of development under high temperature or high humidity conditions. If the paper is used continuously at temperatures of 40°C or above for more than 24 hours, attention should be paid to the ambient temperature and humidity.
2. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight
  • The paper will yellow if exposed to direct sunlight for prolonged periods. The printed image also tends to fade in direct sunlight.
  • The image tends to fade when left exposed to conventional fluorescent light for prolonged periods of time. Therefore printed paper should be filed soon after printing.
3. Do not use solvent-type adhesives
  • Adhesives containing volatile organic solvents such as alcohols, esters, ketones etc. cause color formation.
  • Adhesives based on starch, PVA or CMC are harmless and hence recommended.
4. Avoid contact with plasticizers
  • PVC film contains plasticizer such as esterphtalate and prolonged contact reduces the image forming ability of the paper and causes printed image to fade as well. When storing the paper, files and cases made of polyolefins or polyesters are recommended.
  • Self-adhesive cellophane tapes might contain plasticizer which causes the printed image to fade. Tacking thermal paper with double sided self-adhesive tape, applied to the back side of  thermal paper, is not recommended.
  • Wax-type paper might also contain plasticizer and cause the image fading of thermal paper. Do not store these two types of paper in the same file or case.
5. Others
  • Avoid direct contact with freshly developed diazo copying paper as it might induce colour forming on the surface of  thermal paper.
  • Avoid direct contact with carbon as well as carbon-less copying papers as these might reduce print ability or cause the printed image of thermal paper to fade.
  • Human body fluids like sweat causes the printed image of thermal paper to fade. Please pay attention to proper paper handling.
  • Thermal paper sheets must be stored with their printed surface separate from each other because the printed image might slightly be transferred from one surface to the other.
  • Frictional heat induced by scratching or pressure by hard metal objects, finger nails etc. causes images to be developed. Please pay attention to proper paper handling and avoid e.g. transportation of heavy jumbo rolls by rolling them on the floor.

Our 80x70mm thermal rolls are 74.5m Long. Up to 61% longer than our competitors rolls.

If I order several printer ribbons will they go bad?

No, our printer ribbons are in sealed packaging. However, if you order several ribbons, it recommended that you store the spare ribbons in zip-lock bag until they are ready for use. The POS printer ribbons will remain fresh as long as you don't open the sealed ribbons until they are ready for use.

Are all your till rolls made using Grade A paper?

Yes, we would not sell any other till rolls. Using Grade A, dustless till rolls results no printer clogging. We recommend you only use Grade A, and be wary of anyone trying to sell you rolls without telling you the grade of paper.
