Help Guide


Many new companies are selling Thermal Paper Rolls at unbelievably low prices.

The paper that is used in their rolls is substantially thicker and more loosely wound than the good quality paper that we source from the UK & EU.

As an example:

Our Credit Card rolls - 57mm x 40mm contain 14 Meters of paper per roll.

Their Credit Card rolls - 57mm x 40mm contain 8 Meters of paper per roll.

This paper will also leave substantial residues on your printer head leading to premature breakdowns and costly repairs to your equipment.

Keep in mind that most Credit Card Machines are rented and replacement bills for damage caused by non-approved paper can exceed £500.

If you are unsure of what you are buying then ask them for a sample pre-purchase and check it out for yourself.

Measuring your Till Rolls

Codes on this site are Width x Diameter (in mm)

How to measure your Till Rolls

How to measure your Till Rolls

Codes used on our Site are as follows:

TH - Thermal Rolls (These do not require a Ribbon)

SP - Single Ply Rolls (these require a Ribbon)

2P - 2 Ply Rolls (these require a Ribbon)

3P - 3 Ply Rolls (these require a Ribbon)

For example the roll above is a Thermal Roll 80mm width & 70mm diameter. The Code is then TH80-70.

The width is important but the diameter of roll that you select can be less than the Roll that you currently have. If for example your roll measures 80mm x 72mm then an 80mm x 70mm roll will fit without problems.

The different types of Paper

There are 4 different types of Paper:


This is heat sensitive paper used in machines with a Thermal Print Head. These Rolls do not require a Ribbon


These Till Rolls are used in Impact (Dot Matrix) printers. You can tell if the equipment you are using is an Impact Printer by seeing if it uses a Ribbon. 


These Till Rolls are used in Impact (Dot Matrix) printers and produce 2 copies at the same time. You can tell if the equipment you are using is an Impact Printer by seeing if it uses a Ribbon. 


These Till Rolls are used in Impact (Dot Matrix) printers and produce 3 copies at the same time. You can tell if the equipment you are using is an Impact Printer by seeing if it uses a Ribbon.


The quick and simple way to tell the difference between Thermal Paper and Single Ply Paper is that Thermal Paper has a smooth glossy appearance whereas Single Ply has a matt appearance and feels like regular A4 Printer paper. You can also differentiate the two by running your finger nail or coin across the paper. The Thermal Paper will leave a grey or black mark where you ran your finger or coin across, the Single Ply Paper will leave no mark.
