Thermal Paper Receipts and Faxes

If you need to keep a receipt for warrantees, etc. Check to see if it is printed on thermal paper. If they are, photocopy them for your records. Receipts on thermal paper tend to fade over time. Some fax machines use thermal paper, too. I've found ones that I can no longer read.

Yes, especially the ones from auto parts houses that give lifetime warranties on parts (if they even still do that). After only a couple of months you can't read anything on them. Pretty convenient for them, if you ask me.

Experience, lifetime starter went bad after 4 months, couldn't read anything on receipt, except where I wrote (Starter). All of their information was gone!
