BIXOLON certified Blue4est® Thermal Paper


BIXOLON has certified the blue Blue4est® thermal paper for use in its premium SRP-380 thermal receipt printer. BIXOLON’s SRP-380 printer delivers perfect printing results every time on the blue thermal paper thanks to the smart media function, a special Blue4est® setting.

BIXOLON certified Blue4est® Thermal Paper

The blue receipt is continuing 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. Consumers can easily recognize that the receipts are environmentally friendly given the paper’s blue color. This is a result of the novel way in which the paper works: Koehler’s Innovation & Technology division developed a process which completely eliminates the need for color developers, meaning the Blue4est® till receipt is fully recyclable and can be disposed of as wastepaper.

Katja Frede, Product Manager Thermal Paper at Koehler Paper in Oberkirch (Germany), emphasized the following: “We are delighted that our Blue4est® thermal paper now has the recognition it deserves. A lot of work went into the development of the product, which, thanks to the fact that it does not use color developers and can thus be fully recycled, is unique on the market. The printer manufacturers have recognized all this and are now launching printer solutions that are tailor-made for Blue4est® thermal paper.”

Seamless Switch to Blue4est® Paper Thanks to BIXOLON’s Smart Media Function

The Smart Media Function automatically recognizes the Blue4est® thermal paper and selects the optimized print settings, allowing users to seamlessly switch between standard thermal paper and the new, sustainable blue thermal paper from Koehler Paper. Jay Kim, Managing Director at BIXOLON Europe GmbH, explains: “The feedback we have received on the Smart Media Function has been consistently positive. We are confident that the sustainable printer solution, combined with Koehler Paper’s Blue4est® thermal paper is the correct step towards a greener future.”
