Staples Canada has discounted this case of HP FSC-Certified Multipurpose Paper, 20 lb. 8 1/2″ x 11″ to $49.90, originally $65.85. This sale price is even slightly better than a case of the cheapest Staples brand copy paper.
This paper is 96 bright and acid-free. It is manufactured with ColorLok Technology, which:
produces colours up to 30% more vivid and blacks up to 60% bolder than ordinary papers and dries up to three times faster for fewer smears
You can use this paper in a two-sided printer or copier with its extra smooth surface. I did not know this, but HP donates 20% off the proceeds from each case of paper to the Canadian Cancer Society for breast cancer research. That is pretty cool.
I couldn’t find these cases of paper very many places, but I did find the same HP case at Office Depot for $64.99. For small businesses and for families with many children in school, you will find yourself going through paper at an exceedingly high rate. This box includes 5000 pages. As a university student, I went through around 400 – 500 pages per year just by myself. I hated wasting that much paper, but between rough drafts, printing out articles for research, and then printing out papers to submit I went through so much paper per year. My parents run their own business and between invoices, quotes, contracts, and all the other paperwork necessary to run a small business in Canada, a case-lot of paper was purchased every couple of years.
I currently run HP paper in my HP printer with HP ink (wow, they match!), and for the most part the paper is cooperative. My husband was actually impressed with the quality of the combination when I photocopied our licenses recently for some banking stuff. The photocopies were incredible replicas of the original, which I credit to the quality of the HP combo above. I have had horrible copy paper before (the kind your printer eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), and HP’s paper is a step above in my opinion.
This product has 37 reviews for 4/5 stars. As this reviewer comments:
I need to print a lot of sheet music at home no matter in color or black/white, these papers never fail me.
The only downside of this deal is that it ends today. On the upside, this case of paper ships to you for free because it costs over $45.
