Most retailers utilize thermal printers at their registers. What a number are doing now is buying a paper with two ink layers on it to make a colored thermal receipt. Some are even going to Epson inkjet based POS printers.

This is a great loss prevention mechanism against printing your own receipts. The average joe can get thermal paper - they can't get two color thermal paper as readily.
