Now, you might have recently seen my love letter to my office supplies, well I have a love of paper too. I know I’m not alone when it comes to having a “thing” for office supplies so I wanted to share with you how wide my love of paper is too!
So for one, I love special paper, you know the kind you use for scrapbooking. I love thick paper that you can paint on and I love normal paper, you’re every day paper. The kind of paper you draw on, or make lists, or that you use in your printer every day and quality matters.
Why Paper is Important
There is a difference in value and performance between the paper options on the shelf. It can make a difference in how your drawing, colors or ink pop off the page.
Black ink doesn’t bleed through the other side
Paper doesn’t jam in the printer
Work documents feel professional
Printed pages look their best
You get the most out of every paper sheet
We like using Boise POLARIS® Premium papers. One of the major reasons is because my husband is a big fan of using bright white paper. It’s exceptionally bright and highly versatile. The Boise POLARIS Premium paper is paper you can trust when printing important documents that need to shine at all times. Whether it’s a client proposal, an important presentation, or your children’s homework, Boise POLARIS Premium papers ensure excellent document imaging and consistent results every time. You can see the color difference in each type of paper here. When using paper the Opacity and Brightness are important depending on what type of project you are working on.

So the multi-purpose paper is the paper you’re going to use most often. It’s the same paper that my son uses to draw on and that we almost always use in our printer. His artwork looks great on it and it’s easy for him to erase and looks great.
You’ll find that other brands paper will be more opaque, see through, sheer. If paper is too sheer, ink with show through when you print and offices will not be able to print double sided. A paper that is too sheer can also make a document feel less sophisticated or polished.
This makes a difference if you care about how much your work pops off the page. Paper that is more even in tone and less creamy in color will look whiter to the eye and will provide more contrast for printed images and text, making them stand out.
