Hi, Travis from POSGuys.com. Today we’ll be reviewing the M series of printers from Epson. This is the TM-M30 and the TM-M10 receipt printers. They’re both thermal receipt printers, they’re similar form factor where they’re very square. This is the 3-inch version, this is the 2-inch version. By 3-inch version, this means this uses standard receipt printer of 3 inch width, and this uses a 2 inch, smaller receipt paper. They’re both top load or front load, this is set into front-load version, this is set in to top-load version. They print at a reasonable rate, this is an 8-inch per second, and this is a 6-inch per second. The 8-inch per second is the same as the current model TM-T20ii version, so it’s the same print speed, it’s just a much more compact form factor.
The industry’s smallest POS 2″ receipt printer in its class, the TM-m10 thermal receipt printer saves valuable counter space, while offering the freedom to print receipts from virtually any mobile device and/or desktop PC. Ideal for cramped spaces, its modular casing can be easily switched from a top-load to front-load configuration. This versatile thermal printer offers smooth integration with existing mobile POS environments, intuitive functionality and advanced connectivity for effortless configuration. The TM-m10 is the first of its kind designed exclusively for small businesses. Featuring ePOS™ print technology, it works with iOS®, Android™ and Windows® mobile devices and desktop PCs, and offers fast, easy setup.
Kitchen printers are typically impact printers. They use a ribbon in the printing process. Impact printers are not affected by heat and are therefore best suited for use in places like kitchens. Impact printers, (called dot matrix printers), use an ink ribbon to print on regular paper. The Star Micronics SP742 is an ideal printing solution for the kitchen. This fast, two-color printer offers crisp, easy to read type for quick viewing, a clamshell design for easy paper loading and an embedded power supply for space efficiency.

I ended up buying an iPad so I could print receipts and keep track of sales using the square register app. However I believe like most of you said, no one will really ever ask for a receipt for a shaved ice! Oh well. At least I can check this forum while I’m waiting for customers to come by!

iPad-based POS (Point of Sale) systems have become increasingly popular. In addition to saving money on upfront costs, these systems have streamlined operations in the modern merchant and Square Register is quickly becoming one of the most convenient and coolest ways for small businesses to process transactions. Tablet and smartphone based systems are also being increasingly used for inventory control – from the retail floor to the warehouse – and by sales personnel assisting customers in-store and on the convention floor. The hardware options for Square Stand differ from those below. For Square Stand hardware options, or to learn how to set up hardware with Square Stand, click here: here.
I own a deli and this system has been amazing! I set it up myself and I’m not tech savvy at all… Not just that but all the girls and I learned to use it the first hour. Very simply, straight to the point and does everything you need!
To enable printing to your receipt printer from Square, you first need to connect your receipt printer to your iPad. Once your printer is connected, under Settings > Printers, tap your connected receipt printer and make sure “Receipts, Bills, and Reports” (under Print From This Device) is toggled on. This screen is also where you can enable printing kitchen tickets (if you have a kitchen printer).
New In Box Star Micronics TSP100 thermal printer. Never used, brand new. Bought it for my restaurant, turns out it was a model that isn’t compatible with my POS system. All original contents and packa…
Edit to say that the network issues I mentioned were tied to the wireless router we were using. Replaced that piece and the printer started working great. I still recommend purchasing as a package for better price and customer service, but not a bad piece of equipment.

In addition to its ability to pair with iOS, Android and other popular mobile platforms, the SM-T300i has easy drop in & print paper loading, a reliable and quick print speed of 75mm per second, and an intuitive LCD display.Dust protected and splash-proof resistant (IP54 Certified), the SM-T300i is rugged enough for outside field workers requiring handhelds to seamlessly print from a mobile device to a durable portable printer. The SM-T300i also allows for restaurant servers and clerks working in demanding retail and hospitality environments to print standard three inch format receipts wherever they need to. Its rugged and splash proof design combined with standard three inch receipt printing and a long battery life make the SM-T300i a welcomed option.
I know that the Square corporate line is that the APG Vasario VB554A-BL1616 is the only USB cash drawer that works with the Square Stand hub (which means you don’t need a printer, which is what I want). I am wondering if anyone has experience using a different, less expensive USB drawer with the Square Stand and USB hub?
