Epson certifies Koehler Paper Blue4est thermal paper

Epson TM-T88VI and TM-T88VII receipt printers deliver first-rate results when printing on Blue4est thermal paper

The perfect team for the environment delivers sustainable first-rate receipt printing at the Point of Sale.

Koehler Paper, a manufacturer of thermal paper, announced that Seiko Epson has certified Koehler Blue4est thermal paper for use with Epson TM-T88VI and TM-T88VII POS receipt printers – together, they are the perfect team for the environment.

Blue receipts for a green future

The blue receipt continues its ascent as more and more companies put a premium on sustainability as they respond to their customers’ demand for more environmentally conscious products and services. Blue4est receipts can be simply disposed of as wastepaper. The unique part – consumers can easily recognize that the receipts are environmentally friendly given the paper’s blue color. In turn, this color is the result of the novel way the paper works, which eliminates the need for color developers and was developed internally at Koehler. Another advantage is that printed information on the receipt will not fade for a long time – 35 years at least. This makes the receipts perfect for archiving and documentation purposes. In addition to this, the raw material used comes from FSCcertified sources, with Katja Frede, Product manager Thermal Paper at Koehler Paper, said, “I’m particularly pleased to say that the raw paper used in our new generation of environmentally friendly thermal paper has been made 100% with clean energy for about a year now. That further highlights how sustainability has been a driving force behind our blue thermal paper.”

The perfect team for the environment reduces carbon footprints

Christoph Ruhnke, who works as the business systems manager responsible for Germany, Austria, and Switzerland at Epson and who is responsible for the marketing and sales operations for Epson POS solutions in the German-speaking region, explains, “More and more supermarkets are taking an interest in the ‘perfect team for the environment,’ that is, our future-proof Epson TM-T88VII receipt printer with low power consumption and operating costs used together with recyclable Koehler Blue4est thermal paper. Another unique advantage is that Blue4est is the first thermal paper to be approved for direct contact with food. The printing quality is first-rate, not to mention that switching to the environmentally friendly POS solution is a great way to reduce carbon footprints sustainably!”

Sustainable first-rate printing results at the POS

TM-T88VI and TM-T88VII receipt printers are perfect for retailers, grocery stores, supermarkets and foodservice businesses that want to make their POS printing solutions sustainable. The TM-T88VII is a durable, heavy-duty printer that combines low power consumption with low operating costs, and it delivers first-rate results when using Blue4est thermal paper.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
