Copy Paper Buying Guide
Copy Paper Buying Guide for Businesses
When ordering copy paper for your business, it can often seem like there are endless choices and options to choose from. For many of our customers, they might not be sure which is the right fit for their uses and which types of copy paper would be best for what they need it for. WCP has created a Copy Paper Buying Guide to help our customers decide which paper type is best for them.
To understand a little bit more about Copy Paper to start, let’s break it down into two grades of product you’ll be choosing from: Economy Grade and Premium Grade. Economy Grade is for projects that you don’t need a super high-quality sheet of paper, perhaps something that is going to get run off and recycled more quickly. Premium Grade copy paper is something that will have a little higher quality in the sheet, might be a little thicker, and will have a brighter hue. Each grade is meant for different uses and your Account Manager can help you decide which option might be best for your required uses.
