Unbox the Impact Printer. Begin by loading the ink ribbon cassette provided in the box into the front of the printer by lifting the lid, tightening the ribbon prior to install, and pushing in the cassette until it clicks. Tighten the ribbon again to ensure it is taut and close the front lid.
Install a roll of regular (non-thermal) printer paper by opening the rear lid and placing the roll of paper in in so that it rolls towards the rear of the printer. Close the lid. (Additional Impact Paper is not provided, please make sure to purchase a supply with the following specifications: 3in x 165ft 1-Ply Bond Paper)
