PeriPage Mini Thermal Printer


Somewhere around the start of June, just before I went back to work after shielding, I decided to re-open my Depop shop! Since then, I've managed to sell around 30 items, consisting of Funko POP! figures, comic books, cosmetics, and more. During this, somewhere around mid-July, I saw someone post about their PeriPage Printer on their Instagram, and I was intrigued, so I had to have a look on Amazon, to see what it was.

Well within 10 minutes, I purchased my own one, for £47.99, which was in a bundle with some thermal paper and some sticker paper. I've since gone on to buy a 4 pack of sticky labels too. 




The main reason I wanted to buy it, is so that I could use the sticker paper to print out people's addresses on when I made a sale. My handwriting isn't fabulous, and I was always worried I would accidentally spell some part of the address wrong, and it would get lost. This way, I could just copy and paste the address from the email into the text section of the app, and I couldn't mess it up! I also used the coloured thermal paper to print off a little receipt for them too, which I would pop into the packaging for them.



To use the printer, you need to download the PeriPage app, and through this, you can print text, pictures, webpages, labels and banners. The images and text can only be in black, and the images are made up of tiny dots, so they're not HQ images, but perfect if you're scrapbooking or wanting a little image to stick somewhere. 



There is currently and old and new version of the app. I find the old one easier to use, so that is the one you can see in the images above. The old version also has a 'discovery' section, where you can print off Sudoku puzzles, colourings, and other little activities. 

Have you tried a thermal printer before, and if so, which one? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

    1. It's a global app I think?? I know it is here in the UK, Australia and America, but haven't seen many places selling from Europe yet! xx
