Do-it-yourself thermal paper
I am thinking about buying a small mobile printer, but the smallest (500g/1lbs, â¬50) available is using thermal paper.
While I could find the paper rather cheap in the US (from about 6 cent/sheet) here I could not find anything similar.
I did stumble across
http://www.atarimagazines.com/v6n2/Inventions.html (" ... homemade thermal paper has a darker printout than any thermal paper you could buy. ... Be sure to clean your thermal head ... .") and
Has anyone tried it or allready an old thermal printer to try?
Even if it will not be suitable for every day use, I am really interested in the subject :-)
