Choosing the right paper

Whether you need premium laser paper, recycled, white or coloured sheets, we offer a wide selection of sizes and weights. In addition to standard cut paper, did you know we also have a large range of specialised papers, certificates, listing paper and business cards?

Looking after your paper

The storage and handling of paper is often overlooked. By being aware of a few simple facts, paper jams and other problems can be avoided.

Damp

Paper is manufactured with low moisture levels. If exposed to damp it will absorb moisture from the air and will not feed efficiently due to a curling effect.

Storage

It is recommended that paper is stored in its wrapper until you need to use it. This will prevent damage but also help to minimise running issues.

Heat

Paper stored next to heat sources or in direct sunlight can become over dry. This will also lead to a curling effect and can lead to jams.

Cold Conditions

If paper has been stored in cold conditions, it should be allowed to reach room temperature before being put into printers and copiers.
