Hi f0X,

thanks for your question. That's just an arbitrary number. Five rolls 
would also be sufficient (if you buy the thirdparty rolls they aren't 
that expensive). It's just a large number (likewise with the paper) 
because I know from past events that stuff when it's available will be 
used, and I know the one roll that comes with the device won't be enough.

If you've got any suggestions or questions I'm glad to help.
