What size of thermal paper is available in Bangladesh?
Thermal paper is commonly used in Bangladesh for printing receipts, challans, tickets, and other cases. 80mm x 80mm thermal paper is most commonly available in BD, which is called the "standard size" for thermal paper.

BD also offers thermal paper in other sizes including 57mm x 50mm or 57mm x 30mm handheld receipt printers and larger sizes including 110mm x 80mm depending on the user's specific needs.
Which is better for using thermal paper wax or resin or wax resin ribbon?
Wax, resin, or wax-resin ribbons are used to print on thermal paper. However, these ribbons offer different benefits depending on the specific application and quality of the desired print. Wax Ribbon is suitable for printing on uncoated or matte-coated paper labels. However, it does not provide high durability or resistance to heat, moisture, or abrasion for printing text or barcodes. Resin ribbons are mainly used to make synthetic labels such as asset tags, chemical drum labels, or medical labels. In addition, wax resin ribbons can be used to print almost any type of label, including paper and synthetic labels. However, depending on the scope of work and facilities, the price of ribbon in BD is more or less. So it is better to choose a high-quality ribbon considering the scope of work in case of thermal paper printing.
