@wenotfreeyet I'm assuming you're aware that the thermal prints will fade over a few years -- they're not a stable storage format.

@s0 i wasn’t aware of that so thank you for sharing. i dont really plan to use it for long term projects, just some of the things i’d like to print for collaging and stuff feels like its a waste on a regular printer is all.

@wenotfreeyet @s0 They also get messed up by being left in the heat or just by friction. You can test it on any receipt from a store.

If you wanna print at low power, you want a dot matrix printer. It's old tech but super reliable and doesn't need to warm up like a laser printer.
