Paper-Net, Inc. Completes conversion to 100% BPA free thermal paper rolls

We are pleased to announce that, as of January 2016, 100% of Paper-Net’s thermal paper rolls are BPA free.
The process of converting to BPA free thermal paper rolls started in 2013. By middle of 2014, 95% of our thermal paper rolls were converted to BPA free.
We completed conversion of the remaining 5% of odd items to BPA free by the end of 2015. BPA free thermal paper is recyclable.
You may still find a separate category for BPA free thermal paper rolls in our website which we will keep for clients who are used to ordering from this page.
Paper-Net also introduced Phenol Free thermal paper rolls in early 2015 for clients requiring both BPA free and BPS free (phenol Free) thermal rolls. This product’s image and properties meets our highest standards for direct thermal paper. This product is recyclable.
Appvion paper has recently introduced an enhanced phenol free direct thermal paper, Alpha® Free, made with vitamin C as the image developer. The formulation relies on vitamin C – a well-known and well-studied nutrient that’s widely regarded as safe. In fact, it’s the same vitamin C that millions of people take as a health supplement every day.
Please let us know if you are interested in this vitamin C phenol free product by emailing us at or call us at 1-800-210-2203

Receipt Printers for POS: How to Choose a Receipt Printer

Receipt printers are an important part of a point of sale (POS) system. They are used in retail environments to print credit card slips and customer receipts. Restaurants also use receipt printers to print off orders back in the kitchen or at the bar.
The main options for choosing receipt printers include thermal printers (most common), dot matrix printers, and ink jet printers.
Dot matrix printers, also known as impact printers, are the least expensive option, are very reliable, and involve minimal operating costs (replacing paper and ribbons). Dot matrix printers have tiny pins that are mounted on the print head, which work with an ink ribbon to produce a series of dots that form the letters on the paper. They can often print in two colors, black and red, and are capable of printing graphics. Read more here
