A dot matrix printer or impact matrix printer is a type of printer with a print head that prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a typewriter. Unlike a typewriter, letters are drawn out of a dot matrix, consisting of needles, and thus varied fonts and arbitrary graphics can be produced. Because the printing is done by applying mechanical pressure, these printers can create carbon copies.
