Do you know which Star receipt printer is the best for your business? There are several top options suited for a variety of retail, restaurant, and hospitality locations.
Star Micronics’ mC-Print2 is a smart choice for both the front- and back-of-the-house operations for businesses using traditional PC point of sale (POS) systems, tablet solutions, and web-based POS.
The mC-Print 2 is the mCollection’s 2-inch front-exit thermal printer, which is designed for easy paper loading and maintenance, ensuring minimal downtime in the fast-paced retail environment. Its ergonomic size is ideal for maximizing precious counter space and its five interfaces and multiple connectivity options deliver ultimate flexibility. The mC-Print2 also features Print Flat Technology, ensuring each receipt comes out flat with no paper curl.
The mc-Print3 has a stylish cube design that was created for busy and space-conscious restaurateurs and retailers. The mC-Print3 includes a protected control board and IPX2 splash-proof rating to guard against spills and particles that fly in even the most well-run kitchens and tough retail environments.
Its 3-inch compact footprint maximizes counter space and its ultra-fast 250 mm/second printing speed ensures customers are checked out and orders are printed as quickly as possible, safeguarding the customer experience. With multiple connectivity options, access to Star CloudPRNT and USB peripherals, such as cash drawer, scanner, and customer display, the mC-Print3 is well equipped to handle any restaurant or retail application. Just like the mC-Print2, the mC-Print3 also includes Print Flat Technology, so that every print job comes out flat.
The mPOP™, Mobile Point of Purchase, is the first hybrid for tablet POS that combines a cash drawer and a 2-inch, “drop in and print” paper loading printer. This compact Star receipt printer is an ideal solution for tablet- and mobile device-based POS systems.
The mPOP’s ergonomic, fully integrated design works with any tablet or mobile device. It’s sleek look and compact design is perfect for specialty retail environments, such as boutiques or salons. It delivers the polished appearance these environments call for without compromising features, space, design quality, or functionality.
Star’s TSP143III line of printers was created to address connectivity problems that plague business owners. The TSP143IIIU delivers a simple and extremely reliable tether connection for iOS devices via USB connectivity. This sleekly designed Star receipt printer is spotlight-ready and looks beautiful sitting on a counter in both restaurant and retail environments.
The TSP143III thermal printer is easy to set up and compatible with Star Micronics Cloud Services, granting users access to a suite of value added services, including PromoPRNT. PromoPRNT offers retailers and restaurateurs the opportunity to create and schedule custom promotions printed on customer receipts, increasing customer retention and bolstering the bottom line.
The back of the house is where heat, spills, particles, and steam can damage a printer to the point where it stops working. The SP742 impact printer is the answer to those concerns. This fast, two-color printer is built to withstand heat and humidity while offering clear and crisp type, clamshell design for easy paper loading, and an embedded power supply for space efficiency. The SP742 supports iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod touch®, in addition to Android™ and Windows devices.
Star Micronics’ printer lineup complements any device and includes options for every type of business and environment, even where space is limited. The company’s roster of printers includes thermal units for clear printing, impact printers for harsh work stations, and hardware with functional, compact footprints.
