I am working with three different receipt printers ( Star TSP143, Star 654IIBi, and Bixolon SRP 350II).
Whenever I print a receipt via the POS UI the quality is very poor (low density, improper positioning, jagged characters); however, when I print from POS > Daily Operations > Order detail interface using the 'Reprint' option which renders the receipt as a PDF the quality is high both in the PDF and the printed version using the receipt printer.
What do I need to do to get high quality results printing from the POS UI?
Has anyone else had to deal with this?
I am partially answering my own question, and will update w/ more info as I discover it.
We predominantly work with Japanese character sets and the existing font-family used in the pos.css file (e.g. 'Inconsolata') did not render good results. I found this stackoverflow article (stackoverflow.com/questions/14563064/japanese-standard-web-fonts) which indicated a best practice was to use:
font-family:"ãã©ã®ãè§ã´ Pro W3", "Hiragino Kaku Gothic Pro",Osaka, "ã¡ã¤ãªãª", Meiryo, "ï¼ï¼³ ï¼°ã´ã·ãã¯", "MS PGothic", sans-serif;
So far the results in the UI are better but more testing is need on the printers.
