Dot Matrix Printers & Dot Matrix Printer Paper

Posted: 4/27/22 | Category:  Forms, Workplace | By: 

Find Dot Matrix Printer Paper for High-Volume Printing

A dot matrix printer, also known as an impact matrix printer, uses hammers hitting an ink ribbon in order to print. The hammers press into the ribbon, causing ink to be deposited onto the paper. The more hammers a dot matrix printer has, the higher the resolution. Nine-pin heads produce draft-quality printing, while 24-pin heads produce typewriter-quality print. Speeds for dot matrix printers are typically 90 to 100 lines per minute.

Dot matrix printers were popular in the 1980s. Compared to inkjet printers, which work by spraying tiny droplets of ink onto the page, and laser printers, which work with laser beams, dot matrix printers are relatively slow in operation and cannot create as high a quality of print. They are also noisier to operate and can jam fairly easily. However, because they use the impact of the pins to print, they can be used to print multiple copies of the same text when carbon paper is used, and they handle thick paper better than laser and inkjet printers do. Therefore, they’re typically used in printing multipart forms, and some businesses still use them today.
