Mini Thermal Receipt Printer Tutorial

Pt 264

Mini Thermal Receipt Printer Tutorial! Add a mini printer to any microcontroller project with this very cute thermal printer. Thermal printers are also known as receipt printers, they’re what you get when you go to the ATM or grocery store. Now you can embed a little printer of your own into an enclosure. This printer is ideal for interfacing with a microcontroller, you simply need a 3.3V-5V TTL serial output from your microcontroller to print text, barcodes, bitmap graphics, even a QR code!

  1. That is awesome Adafruit. I hope you will sell extra rolls of paper. I recently bought a thermal printer somewhere else and am making a fortune teller with it. http://electricprojects.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/thermal-printer-arrived/
