You can change the drop-down at the top of the site to view prices in USD (well approx prices) - as the conversion is based on paypal's published conversion lookups without their extra fees.

Yes, but we have to be mindful of the thermal paper roll measurement before ordering these rolls. In according to the TS2040 manual, Roll size: Roll width: 110mm/4.28"/4.33"/ or 4-5/16" --- Roll diameter: 48mm --- Paper length: 25 meter max. 82 feet.

Are these thermal paper rolls expensive?

Thank you very much in advance.
From memory people used to find the simplest way was to buy till paper rolls and cut them to size.

I have 7 TS2040 rolls on sellmyretro - £2 a roll - ... nter+paper

Never found a need to cut anything down only wind on as much as is required from these bigger rolls and they don't have to be 110 mm exactly as the printer doesn't print full paper width , I have been using 105mm and sometimes 100mm for at least 25 years with no problems so I wouldn't get too hung up on exact dimensions. ... pt-printer ... nter-Roll- ... 2359086267

Three suppliers without really trying so not exactly hard to find, there's a ton of suppliers out there and I've found it's cheaper to buy the bigger rolls and just wind off what you need.


The ones on sell my retro are a bargain at that price so most definitely worth getting a hold of so if you're not confident with rewinding till rolls or don't feel happy about other sizes then grab these while you can, well worth the cash.

My roll currently in use 105mm.
