Solid ink printers, also known as phase-change printers, are a type of thermal transfer printer.They use solid sticks of CMYK-coloured ink, similar in consistency to candle wax, which are melted and fed into a piezo crystal operated print-head.
The paper then passes over the print drum, at which time the image is immediately transferred, or transfixed, to the page.
Acquisition and operating costs are similar to laser printers.
Drawbacks of the technology include high energy consumption and long warm-up times from a cold state.
Also, some users complain that the resulting prints are difficult to write on, as the wax tends to repel inks from pens, and are difficult to feed through automatic document feeders, but these traits have been significantly reduced in later models.In addition, this type of printer is only available from one manufacturer, Xerox, manufactured as part of their Xerox Phaser office printer line. Previously, solid ink printers were manufactured by Tektronix, but Tek sold the printing business to Xerox in 2001.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_(computing)

It can also be ordered in wholesalers, where more paper is stored in the printer, which will then be used during a large number of prints.
Of course, people looking for paper for the printer can also use the services of large stores with printing and computer accessories.
