HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PAPER
Copy paper, also known as printer, dual-purpose, multi-purpose or laser paper, is the standard paper used in copiers, printers and fax machines. Most paper these days is multi-purpose, able to be used in any machine, however there are papers made specifically for inkjet and wide format printing, though standard paper works fine in most inkjet printers.
LETTER (8 ½” X 11″)
Letter size (8 ½” x 11″) paper, is the most commonly used size. It is typically packaged 500 sheets per ream, 10 reams per case. Paper is available in white or colors, in different weights and brightnesses. It is available with different levels of recycled content, from 30% to 100% recycled content.
LEGAL (8 ½” X 14″)
Legal size (8 ½” x 14″) paper provides a slightly larger print surface then letter size paper, though your machine needs a paper tray built to handle this size.
LEDGER (11″ X 17″)
The second most common size of paper is ledger size (11″ x 17″). This size is used for printing newspaper pages, posters or graphics such as blueprints or maps, when the type size would be too small to see clearly on a smaller sized sheet of paper. Many modern printers or copy machines have a third tray set up for this paper size, or the tray for legal-sized paper is adjustable for larger sizes.
A4 PAPER (8-1/4 X 11-3/4)
A4 paper (8-1/4 x 11-3/4) is the European standard copy paper size. American companies doing business in Europe sometimes require this size, for example.
