Frequently asked questions

The list of kiosk printer selection decisions below is roughly in descending order of importance.

  • Technology: thermal, laser, ink jet, impact dot matrix, others, color vs b/w or grey.
  • Selecting paper type to match what you are printing
    • Paper Width: narrow receipt, a little wider for more information, or full-page width? ISO Ticket format?
    • Paper Weight / Thickness: important to consider up front, as many printers, especially wider models, can’t handle very thick stock.
    • Media Type: we assumed paper above, but what is being printed could also be tickets, labels, linerless-labels, or other materials.
    • Paper Configuration: roll paper or fan-fold
    • Paper Supply Size: roll diameter or size of fan-fold stack. Need to have paper low information?
  • Presenter: many kiosk applications use a presenter to prevent vandalism, protect private information, or to keep untaken documents off the floor.
  • Cutter: almost always used in kiosk printers, but type varies depending upon paper.
  • Data Interface: how will the printer connect to your host? USB, RS-232, Bluetooth, other? Will your application print via a printer driver? If so, what is your operating system, and can the printer manufacturer supply an appropriate driver for it?
  • Resolution: 203 dpi and 300 dpi are the most common for most applications
  • Print Speed: how fast do you need to print? (No, faster is NOT always better. In thermal printing, the most common type used for kiosks, printing faster increases current draw, which can increase power supply costs.)
  • Operating Voltage: the DC voltage available to run the printer (24VDC, 12VDC, others).
    • Environmental, space and certification concerns:
    • Environmental Conditions: what are the temperature and humidity ranges to which the printer will be exposed? Is it an outdoor application?
    • Space Available: how much room is available inside the kiosk for the printer and paper supply?
    • Printer Orientation: which way should the printout exit the kiosk; upward, downward, horizontally, at an angle?
    • Compliance/Approvals: UL, CE, E1, etc.; does the application require approvals or compliance?
  • Black or Hole Mark: used to position pre-printed tickets so printing can be placed in a specific location.
  • Special Features: any special requirements, such as pull-to-present, dual feed, scan barcode after printing; print both sides of paper, etc.?
  • Expected Workload: while not a requirement, you should know the average number of printouts per day and the average printout length. This allows the calculation of printer life data that is otherwise a guess.
