Telidon was inspired by the noisy, old dot matrix printers of the 1970s and 80s. You can almost hear the zinging of the print-head zipping across the tractor-fed pages. While printing the latest monthly sales figures, chances were pretty good you were looking at something like Telidon. The print was pixelly, monospaced and ungraceful but it had a certain charm and got the job done in a hurry even if it was noise was enough to drown out the boss’s voice. Revel in the irony of using your expensive modern printer to recreate the look of a dot matrix printer.
