Tips for Choosing the Right Paper Roll for You!


We know paper rolls are important for your business, but trying to navigate through the variety of rolls can sometimes be overwhelming.  And in the end, are you really choosing the right paper roll for your application?  Below are some tips on what to consider when selecting the right paper roll for you!   

Size

There is no standard size when it comes to paper rolls.  They are available in several lengths and widths.  The width needed will be based on the width of your printer.  As for length, longer rolls will be more economical and more convenient as you don’t have to frequently change the roll, however you will need to make sure the longer length roll will fit into your printer.  

Quantity

Buying in a larger quantity will likely be more economical, however you will need to consider how much space you have to store them and understand how long it will take you to go through that stock as thermal paper does have a shelf life.  If you store thermal paper in a dark place at a low humidity level and a temperature below 25oC, while also being properly wrapped to avoid toxins from entering, you can store the paper for at least 3 years from the date it was manufactured.   

Quality

The thickness and quality of the paper determines how neat and clear the print is.  A higher quality paper will ensure that the print does not get blotchy.

Price

As with most things, you do get what you pay for with thermal paper rolls.  If you are in need of crisp, clear printing that won’t fade over time, a higher quality (and priced) roll is what you need.  However, if your application doesn’t require this, than a more economical roll would suffice. 


We hope these tips have helped you in selecting the right roll for you.  If you need any assistance in choosing a paper roll for your specific application, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

How to use colour coding to stay organized


When trying to create order within your workspace, a good place to start is with developing a colour code system to help keep your notes, files, appointments, etc all organized. Spend less time trying to decide how to organize something at the time, by doing just a bit of preplanning ahead so you will gain a tremendous amount of time in the end.

For example, you can use a colour coding system on such every day tasks as:

  1. Selecting file folder colours – assign colours by categories and/ or departments
  2. Creating your to do list on your calendar – for example use red for due dates, blue for brainstorming, green for budgeting, pink for social events
