Measuring Rolls

The important measurements of a paper roll are noted below. Measuring your rolls will assure you determine the correct roll for your printer, and avoid incorrect ordering.

1. Measure Roll Width
  • The width of the roll is measured going straight across the face of the paper.
  • When looking at the paper receipt, measure across the top edge from left to right.

  • Inside Core (Core I.D.) – Measure straight across the inside edges of the core.
