Why You Should Consider the BTP-681 Printer?

Like any bar, coffee shop or juice bar owner will tell you, their work is honest but never clean. Liquids squirts, splatter and splashes around as their employees quickly get drinks out. With needing a printer close by to receive orders, the run-of-the-mill thermal printer never stands a chance and often has a less than desirable life span. With these environments in mind, the BTP-681 thermal printer by SNBC is ideal. It’s reliable, tough, and designed to fit a bar’s specific needs.


With liquid everywhere, the BTP-681 printer is designed first and foremost to prevent liquids from getting inside the printer. It has a single-piece body panel covering the top and both sides of the printer. This also allows for a quick and easy wipe down when it get dirty. On top of that, the front-loading receipt paper design also keeps the point of entry for liquids limited.

Space is often an issue in a bar. Glasses and blenders pile up, bottles get left out. Space gets tight in a rush. Don’t worry, the BTP-681 printer has a small footprint, so you can fit it on any counter. If you can’t manage any counter space, it’s boxy silhouette allow it to be mounted under the counter. Thanks in part to its front-loading paper design. Replacing the paper roll is quick and easy as sliding out a drawer, replacing the empty core with a fresh roll from on top of or under the counter.

Lastly, the auto-cutter can be set to complete or partial cut so the tickets don’t end up on the floor.
