From data pulled from our many sales from golf clubs around the country, we’ve noticed a definite trend: golf clubs tend to rely on either a TM-T88V or a TM-U220B to help them manage their busiest seasons of the year. Keep reading to find out why these printers are great options for golf clubs, and why you might want to snag one for your upcoming season!
The TM-T88V: Designed for High-Volume Sales & Fast Printing Speeds
When you have a long line of customers ready to check out in your golf shop, look no further than Epson’s thermal TM-T88V printer to help you maintain swift service! Offered here at hec.com as either a new or refurbished printer, there are several interface options to choose from, including Serial & USB, Parallel & USB, Ethernet & USB, and Wifi & USB. With a speed 20% faster at printing text and graphics (at 300 mm per second) when compared to the earlier T88IV, ease-of-use features, and an interface that supports wired and wireless printing, the TM-T88V likely has all of the features you’ll need to boost the reliability of your retail service.
The Epson TM-T88V is a stellar choice for those who use mobile POS systems, and for those using IOS, Mac OS, Android, Linux, or Microsoft Windows operating systems. The TM-T88V printer also has dual interfaces, and is DHCP enabled for simple and intuitive IP/network configuration. The TM-T88V is also a great option for reducing your golf club’s environmental impact, as it allows for a reduction of paper usage by 30%, and adheres to stringent EMI and safety standards.
The TM-U220B: Ideal for Restaurants & Two-Color Receipt Printing
If you are in the market for a printer for your golf club’s on-site restaurant, the Epson TM-U220B is likely to be your best choice. Used in 99% of restaurants across the country, the TM-U220B is an excellent dot-matrix printer for kitchen settings, but can also be a great choice for your golf store as well. Here at Hillside Electronics, you can purchase the TM-U220B new or refurbished, and can choose from a Serial, Parallel, USB, Ethernet, IDN, or Wifi interface, depending on the individual needs of your establishment. In addition, the TM-U220B is 100% compatible with any POS system currently using a TM-U200 printer. As a mPOS-friendly printer, the U220B is compatible with IOS, Android, and Windows devices.
The TM-U220B printer offers a great deal of versatility, particularly for a printer with such easy to use features. The printer accommodates paper of various sizes (58, 70, or 76 mm), can print in two colors with the correct ribbon inserted (useful for highlighting special offers or logos), and features right-side-up printing for kitchen orders. In addition, the TM-U220B is reliable, compact, and optimized for high speeds of up to 6 IPS. It also boasts a black ribbon life of 3,000,000 characters and a red ribbon life of 750,000 characters.
