Dot matrix printer

dot matrix printer or impact matrix printer is a type of computer printer with a print head that runs back and forth, or in an up and down motion, on the page and prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter.

  • Dot matrix printers make carbon-copies.
  • These printers have one of the lowest printing costs per page.
  • They are able to use continuous paper rather than requiring individual sheets, making them useful for data logging.
  • They are good, reliable workhorses ideal for use in situations where printed content is more important than quality.


  • Impact printers are usually noisy.
  • They can only print low resolution graphics, with limited colour performance, limited quality and comparatively low speed.
  • Single-sheet paper usually has to be wound in and aligned by hand, which is relatively inconvenient and time-consuming.
