The Dot Matrix Printer

If you go to an office supply store today, you’re probably going to be able to find a Dot Matrix Printer. New. Dot Matrix Printers, which have been considered old technology for decades, are apparently here to stay, at least for  now, and are being made by Epson and Okidata.  But why?

Supplies are Inexpensive

For users who don’t care about having the most pristine quality, using at Dot Matrix or Impact printer is more inexpensive to run.

Use what you Need

In places like libraries, schools, doctor’s offices and business offices that frequently print receipts where a user would only require a few inches, or half a sheet of paper, a dot matrix printer is much more accommodating, and results in less wasted paper.

Multi-part Forms

By hitting the pages to print, the dot matrix is ideal for printing on forms with pressure-sensitive sheets of paper at once.

Printing Secretly

By removing the ribbon, things like paychecks can be printed on a special sealed form containing an inner carbon layer or NCR sheet. Only the inner page is printed and you don’t have to race to the printer to ensure confidentiality.

No Wait Time

In very fast-paced environments (think: emergency rooms), there is no wait time to start printing the job. Inkjet and laser printers alike both have a brief start-up that some occupations simply cannot tolerate.
