In the 1400s, the German blacksmith Johannes Gutenberg created mechanical movable type printing, which many say inspired the Printing Revolution and, as a result, the Age of Enlightenment since information could finally be spread far and wide on paper. One of the most famous products to come of Gutenberg’s printing press was a version of the bible. After that, Gutenberg began printing receipt books that businesses could purchase and use to keep track of exchanges with their customers.
If you need a remote Kitchen Impact Order Printer, the Star SP742ML or SP742ME will work for all applications. It is a Dot Matrix Receipt Printer and uses a ribbon, so you can print on carbon copy paper rolls, or standard single ply :
Bluetooth printing was a great project — it brought many unique engineering challenges and taught me a lot about how Square’s code base works. I’ve always been taught to use inheritance when possible to organize and share code, but working with the peripheral class hierarchy was a strong reminder of just how valuable a good, well-organized, object-oriented architecture can be. There was a lot of shared code between WiFi and Bluetooth printers that I could have copied and pasted, but I’m glad that I took the time to not just make it work, but to do it right. I’m thankful that my co-workers pushed me to take the time to experiment with different abstractions of concurrency. Not only is my code better, but I now know many ways to approach the problem. In software, there’s rarely just one solution, and this is a good reminder to explore every possibility before choosing one — because it was the first idea that seemed to work.
Last but not least, though I’m enough of a geek that the code itself would have been interesting and fun for me, it was really special getting to see first-hand how the product truly helped people. Meeting a merchant who had previously only been able to give out handwritten receipts, handing her a Bluetooth printer, and seeing how our new feature would make her job easier was the highlight of my summer.

If my answer solved your problem, would you mind marking it as “Best Answer”? That’ll help the rest of the community find what they’re looking for. If not, just write back, and I’ll continue to help. Thanks!
I am sure that this has been asked and answered, but the search feature on this communities site is not very robust and the information I’ve been able to gather from square/communities is not entirely clear. So I am asking again (maybe).
If you are using your iPad or iPhone by itself with the Square app, you will not be able to use a USB Star Micronics Printer. You will need either a Bluetooth Receipt Printer, or Ethernet Receipt Printer. A good reason for going with Ethernet, is that you can have multiple devices print to one printer. If you are using an Android device, you can use either an Ethernet Receipt Printer, or and of the USB Receipt Printer stated above as long as you use the USB OTG(on the go) adapter. Please note, Bluetooth is not currently supported on Android for Square.
A simple print button on the tablet application would allow us to connect to a local or network printer and print the same form data. Why is this still impossible? Why can we still not utilize our desktop or local printers to print receipt data from the app?
You can use any of our Square Compatible Receipt Printers with the Square Stand Hardware, this setup has the most options to choose from. It just depends how you want to connect to the Square Stand and how many stations you have. If you are connecting straight to the Square Stand via the USB hub, or with Bluetooth we offer the following Thermal Printers for printing Credit Card Receipts :

We recommend using the Square contactless and chip reader for a fast, seamless payment experience on all devices – not just those without a headphone jack. To accept magstripe-only cards, or gift cards, we recommend using the Apple Lightning to Headphone Jack adapter (included with the iPhone 7) to connect your Square magstripe reader. You might also try a third party USB-C to 3.5mm audio adapter, but please note that Square has not officially tested compatibility between the magstripe reader and other third party adapters.
Many businesses understand the importance of offering promotions and discounts, so a receipt printer capable of printing coupons, too, is incredibly useful. Businesses that service a high volume of customers every day, and especially those that create long, itemized receipts should consider a model with a high paper-per-minute production rate. If the receipt printer is for a home office, where the user doesn’t want to disturb others, a person should look for a thermal printer; these are the quietest variety since they do not use any impact to create the font.
Thermal printers use heat to create characters. Many people prefer them since they don’t require ink or toner, which can be quite costly to replace after years of doing business. In fact, thermal printers are one of the top money-saving tools used by companies who do a lot of shipping labels. Thermal printers use coated thermochromic paper, and the thermal head heats up the areas where it needs to create characters. The heat causes the coating on the paper to turn black, resulting in the desired content. Thermal printers are usually faster than Dot-matrix or Inkjet models since the characters are created in one movement.
I looked around for a hardware bundle for my Square POS setup and ultimately went with this combination. Very pleased with the product and the seller’s follow up was excellent. They answered several of my questions quickly and over the holiday weekend.

@usascottwright – While we don’t currently support Epson printers, it’s definitely a popular feature request. I’ll update this thread if that changes in the future! Also, apologies for the delay in following up with you.
I have my own iPad 2 and square stand. I was Looking for compatible hardware and this was excellent. The register and printer work great, I even ordered more papers for the printer so we will use it long term.
There are three main types of receipt printers: Inkjet, Dot-matrix, and Thermal. Dot-matrix printers have a small printing head that moves either in an up and down or side to side motion. Like a typewriter, this printer depends on the impact of the head against the paper to produce characters. The head hits a cloth ribbon that is covered in ink, and then impresses a character onto the paper. It creates characters through a series of thousands of tiny dots, which is how it gets its name. One concern with Dot-matrix printers is that the ribbon must frequently be replaced. Inkjet printers use tiny ink guns to create their characters, instead of impact. The guns shoot little dots of ink at the paper, but the dots are so minuscule that people cannot detect them inside of the characters.
Built specifically to work in environments where heat and humidity can erode the type on the kitchen order, the SP700 is an ideal printing solution. This fast, two-color printer offers crisp, easy to read type for quick viewing, clamshell design for easy paper loading and an embedded power supply for space efficiency.

Receipt printers can have several notification features that can be incredibly useful. Some models will alert the user if there has been a loss of Internet in the middle of a printing job, and others buzz to notify the user that the printing job is done. The latter feature helps keep the user from ripping out the receipt before it’s complete, and having to start all over again. There are also models with LED status lights that tell the user important information like when the ink cartridge is low.

Hi @McNabbGames — I went ahead and combined your thread with another seller’s who had a similar question. I can assure you that we’re always looking into more affordable hardware options for our sellers. As for the technical explanation, from my limited understanding (I’m not an engineer), each printer manufacturer has a specific driver for their hardware, and since manufacturers don’t build printer drivers for Square Register, we would have to build one for each printer model – which is something we don’t have the bandwidth to do.
It is a simple process all I can think is that square gets a percentage of royalties from their supported printer sales and thats why they are locking everything down to these ridiculously overpriced pieces of equipment.
The Ethernet printers compatible with Square Point of Sale are thermal printers. They require heat-sensitive paper and won’t work with non-thermal receipt paper. These types of printers aren’t ideal for kitchens or high-temperature working areas.
Star Micronics TSP100Receipt Printer is the first All-in-One receipt printer on the market today!. The advantage of TSP143LAN Receipt Printer is evident for applications such as retail, restaurants, and convenience stores. TSP143LAN Receipt Printer is provided with all standard operating system drivers (Windows, Linux and Mac) and specialty drivers such as OPOS and JPOS. The printer is also directly supported in Square Register. Star has also included a number of embedded simple utilities that will enhance Retail or Hospitality CRM in POS applications and therefore make the entire experience simple. These printers come complete with every thing you need including printer, power supply, Ethernet cable, wall bracket and a roll of thermal paper.
I’d like to take a step back from discussing integration challenges to mention a few examples from the Square Register code base that made my life easier for this project. The code separates operations looking for connected peripherals and interacting with them and uses abstract superclasses to provide a consistent API to the rest of the app. Because the code was so robust, my new printer code fit well into the rest of the app, and existing code used by other printers fit well into my own new code. One good example is our receipt image renderer. The renderer works by putting data into an HTML document styled by CSS, rendering that HTML into an unseen web view and then rendering the view into PNG image data that can be sent to the printer. The HTML and CSS scale to fit different-sized windows and thus are a good generalizable solution for multiple print widths. All of the printers that we had previously supported (WiFi and USB printers) printed three-inch wide receipts. However most of the Bluetooth printers I worked with use two-inch wide paper. Thanks to the flexibility of our renderer, all I had to do was set the correct print width of a printer and voilà — the receipts were seamlessly resized and looked great.
Have not purchased this printer, but wanted to let people know that this is not the only printer that will work with Square. I have two Star Micronics printers, one Ethernet and one Bluetooth and both work fine with the Square app for iPad. I also have Ethernet based cash drawers that connect through the printers and those works just as well. This probably has the easiest set up, but it is not the only way.
