2ST™ Thermal Paper Receipts


The company that invented the POS receipt has taken thermal printing into the next generation with the two-sided thermal (2ST™) receipt printing technology. This new generation of thermal printing uses dual, thermal print heads to print simultaneously on both sides of the receipt.

If your customers are ready for a faster, more enjoyable experience, you need Iconex’s patented 2ST™ technology. Two-sided thermal printing can help you lower your paper costs, improve the speed of checkout, keep your customers coming back by promoting your products and services, and boost your environmental initiatives.


We all know the pain points of running a business today. Deploying a 2ST™ twosided thermal printing solution can have an immediate, positive impact on the efficiency of your employees, your consumables spend, your return on investment and your carbon footprint.

Improve the speed of checkout

  • Two print heads increase printer speed and overall throughput at checkout
  • Up to 50% fewer paper-roll changes mean reduced customer wait times
  • Receipts are shorter and therefore more manageable for customers

Increase cost savings

  • Less paper leads to lower overall consumables investment

    • Sellable advertising space
