Tesco Value A4 White Paper
I've always got a block of blank A4 paper in the cupboard, I've only recently bought a printer so it hasn't been used for that purpose the majority of time. It's great to have paper on hand to quickly scribble something down, my daughter also loves it to use as a blank canvas for her various crafty activities.
The paper we have at the moment is this one from the Tesco Value range. It is available to buy from Tesco either in store or online, whatever way you do your groceries. It costs no more than £2.50 for a block of approximately 500 sheets.
The paper is packaged exactly how you would imagine in a paper packaging that wraps around the block. The packaging is the same as all other Tesco value products being mainly white in colour with splashes of red and blue thrown in to break up the white. It is easy to open at one end and I tend to tear it a little so it is easier to take one sheet out of the packaging at a time, keeping the remaining sheets all in one place.
The paper itself is actually 75gsm, that personally means nothing to me but apparently it's the thickness of each page. I tend to go on the thickness by feel rather than a random measurement, this paper does feel rather thin, but of course, it is still a sheet of paper so the thickness doesn't really matter to me as I don't need it to print important documents like CV's for example. It is white in colour, I wouldn't say it's the whitest paper I have come across, it has a slightly off white colour but it's hardly noticeable.
During craft activities my daughter uses this paper and despite her putting the paper through its paces it still handles her pencils, crayons and felt tips well. The paper rarely rips despite vigorous drawing on top of it. I use biro's on this paper quite regularly and the paper hands the nib of these pens without tearing too.
I've recently started using this paper in my printer. I've never experienced any paper jamming or ink running from this Tesco paper so it handles this job well also. Of course, as the paper isn't that thick, it doesn't look great for important printable pages but it stands up to the job of everyday printing well.
I'd definitely recommend this Tesco value white paper, it is cheap and the quality is great for its price. Where it isn't the best paper to use for important pieces it handles normal printing fantastically.
Summary: Great value paper
