We have an Epson DFX-8500 printer. It's an old dot matrix printer. We use this to print vouchers with client codes which have 3 sheets (white,yellow, red).
Anyone knows any alternative to replace this printer? We have on unit working, but they don't produce this type of printers anymore. So I guess there should be any alternative printing solution to replace this.

When faced with this issue for Sales Invoices we switched to a Laser printer with four trays, each containing different colored paper.
Never been sorry, dot matrix was a pain.

pjam, then after you print 3 times, how do you put 3 pages together? They gotta stick together so that when a client signs on the invoice, it prints on 2 back sheets.

No they are regular paper, each sheet goes in a different direction:
Customer
Document control
Purchasing
Sales Department (Keeps White copy)

Everything is shipped to customers so no signature needed for Invoice.
Printer and our ERP program allow for Multi-Page printing.

How about carbonless paper for laser printers, apparently available in single or multi-part sets - see (for example) Xerox Carbonless Paper
