Printer is one of the important output devices, which is used widely. The existing ones are bulky and relatively slow thus require more printing time (ppm), which is due to the moving mechanical parts and mechanical constrains. In this new idea, the array of piezoelectric actuators, in the form of layer is used to provide impact on a paper containing carbonic paper in between. This impact results in the deposition of loosely bound ink, of carbon paper, to deposit on the blank sheet. In this approach, the printing time can be minimized to a few milliseconds, because of the quick response time of the actuator. The thickness of the semi-solid state printer can be as low as few millimetres. The length and width can be customized as per the size of paper. In brief, it can be proved as extremely thin, incredibly fast and silent printer
