The second type of paper will be for general printing purposes such as receipts for cash-register applications, printing reminders, or printing notes.

Miniaturized ink cartridges and paper will be additional products to be created for use with the MMP.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
