Thermal Printing

Thermal printing is a process that uses the heat from a thermal print head to darken chemically treated paper. Thermal paper is coated paper that reacts to heat. When the paper passes through the printer assembly, it comes into contact with a thermal print head array and the heater elements turn on to activate the thermal coating, creating the image. The only supply item used is thermal paper.
