FAQ# 2249: How do I print carbon copies with my receipt printer?

Question

How do I print carbon copies with my receipt printer?

Answer

To print receipts with carbon copies you will need a couple of things:

First is an impact printer like the Epson TM-U220 or the Star SP700.

Second, you will need special two-ply paper that will print each receipt with a carbon copy backing. That carbon copy backing receipt paper that is compatible with these printers can be found here: XWP-2P90: Two-ply receipt paper
