GSM, or grams per square meter, is the metric measurement of paper density. Higher GSM usually means better quality and a longer lifespan. In some industries, such as healthcare, where thermal paper is commonly used for receipts and patient wristbands, a longer lifespan is essential to avoid needing to replace rolls frequently.
For example, a paper with a high GSM rating will be much less likely to tear or crumple than a thinner paper with a lower GSM rating. This makes high-GSM papers ideal for applications where durability is essential, such as printing labels or receipts.
The common GSM of thermal paper jumbo rolls in the market are:
A premium brand of thermal paper will provide a print-out image with better performance. The premium brand uses a higher quality coating that is resistant to fading.
