My dad worked in IT and had a shitton of leftover fan-fold paper. I used them for drawing as a little kid, I loved ripping of the edges.

That paper that is long sheets, my grand mother gave that to us as kids. Man, thinking about it, that box is still being used to this day.

Those sweeeet sweeeet days of hanging out in the computer lab and the teacher letting us print gigantic 20 and 40 page hanging banners in Print Shop with bubble letters and all kinds of weird fonts... ahhh those were the days dreams were made of....bliss. ☺

It's crazy these older printers are so simple and just work. The printers these days are complicated and don't last longer than a year before they take a shit then have the stupid rfid chips in the ink that makes you replace all ink before you can even print black even if black is full

These old dot matrix printers complete with paper feed are still a very common sight at nearly every car parts store or service shop in America. Typically used with carbon paper.

Dot matrix is still around, for multi-layer carbonless copies... recipts, bar orders, contracts and forms still need them; if you bought a car at a dealer, your sale contract was likely printed with one (wide carriage even)... I still MAKE dot matrix printheads!

out of curiosity if you added black ink to the used ribbon you opened up would it work as it should?

I used to have one of those in the early 90's. Can't remember of I sold it or lost it in a move.

Print Screen, VERY COOL! I didn't grow up on DOS so I didn't know this. VERY, VERY cool.

Would it be posible to transfer the t-shirt tape to the new color-cartridges? Maybe you could make a whole shirt print that way!

Potentially! Might have to try that when I wear out one of the new color ribbons.

I know how hard are ribbons to find. I know a person that makes custom ribbons if they are hard to find. He also makes custom ones. I am based in Russia and he has his little shop in St. Petersburg

Honestly to me the highlight of this video was the implausibility of that t shirt ink that actually totally worked out... I feel like we will need more of that.

fun fact: fanfold paper means "endlospapier" in german. it translates literally to "endless paper". :D

As used by those money-grabbing people Germans used to gas?
