Paper is bog standard stuff, most people interact with it every day but when you're printing through a printer that tends to jam sometimes using the cheap stuff will just add to the problem. This copy paper is all perfectly sized down the the millimetre, it's thick, bright white, doesn't jam and comes in a handy cardboard box.
This paper is excellent value for money, at around £17 for 2500 sheets in a box ( almost £19 on Amazon, I'd buy elsewhere) which works out at £3.40 per ream. When you consider the fact that Asda's own brand value copy paper is just under £3 per ream and not great quality, this paper really works out better value. It's thicker, can be bought in boxes, and is whiter.
All of the packaging and product can be recycled, or you can use the box as a shipping box, and send stuff through the post in it. It provides good protection for the contents inside and can easily be taped back up when you've finished with it.
The paper is very white, I can't see a spec of brown or black in the sheets which means it's not be remade from something that was never meant to be paper like the recycled copy paper you find. The paper is absorbent so writing with a fountain pen isn't an issue, and neither is a biro, it dries in seconds and doesn't smudge.
The paper is smooth to so it feels good to run your fingers across it. It's a lot smoother than the standard Aro paper from Makro. I used to buy that stuff but it's not even in the same league, it was rough, not shiny at all, and used to smudge. In comparison i've found this is the best one for my printer.
This is also quite flexible stuff, you can rip it, bend it and make paper aeroplanes out of it - good for bored days at the office or school then. It's not like this stuff is just card either, it's 80 gsm so you'll get a decent looking document out of it but equally not like that disgusting value stuff that feels like a cheeseburger wrapper.
It's a false economy buying rubbish paper for less money if you're only going to bin it anyway because it just jams all the time, take it from me, I would know sadly. This is a little more pricey but if you're sending letters to people and want them to look good or just don't want to jam the printer I highly recommend this stuff.
At work we copy and print an awful lot of documents, we probably print too much really. In order to meet our printer needs, the company buys cheap multifunctional paper. 5 Star multifunctional paper is reasonably priced and suitable for various printing needs whether photocopying, printing in colour, text or images.
==Price and availability==
We get a box of 5 packets, each packet as 500 sheets in. You can buy a single 500 sheet pack for around £5.00 from various stationary stores. I think this represents really good value.
The paper is white and standard a4 sized. It has a thickness of 80gsms. I find the paper silky to the touch and of good quality. It is not too thin nor too thick and from printing documents it is excellent. The packets of paper are of a good size as the whole 500 sheets can in inserted into our printer/ By keeping them flat, this ensures that they remain without creases.
I have used the paper regularly and for some reason it tends to be always down to me to replenish the paper supply in the printer. The printer we have does not like card or thick paper as it prints double sided and it can jam inside the machine. This paper flows well and the page is dry and ready to be used once it has landed on the printing tray. I like the quality of the paper, it is fine for sending out letters on and it is perfect for documents. I print doubled sided to save paper and the quality of the paper means that the image or text on the back does not distort the quality of the front page. I have printed pictures of graphs and charts as well as colour and black and white and I am happy with the result. This is obvious not photo quality paper but for mulit purpose paper I consider it very good quality and good value.
I find the quality of the paper is high, especially for the price. As the company prints so much, it is important to find a good quality high value paper and I think this one ticks all the boxes. It is bright, white and when it is stamped up with the company letterhead it looks the part. I would recommend it for office or home use. You can buy the paper from a wide variety of stores and the brand also have other stationary materials such as paper clips.
