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.
