The Right HP Wide Designjet Printer Papers
Posted by steve a on August 19, 2014
When you start ordering paper for your office, you'll begin to see terms like bond, coated, and paper weight. You may not know what these terms mean, but they are vital to your understanding of your paper order and making sure you are getting the HP Wide Designjet Paper that you need for your next project. Let's take a look at these common terms and their definitions:
- Bond paper
This is probably the most common paper seen in an office setting. This is a high quality paper that used in electronic printers and as letterheads and stationery. Its name comes from the fact that it was the paper government bonds were originally issued on.
- Paper weight
The weight of the paper is based on how much 500 sheets of the "parent sheets" would weight when placed on a scale. The higher the weight, the heavier the paper.
- Coated paper
This is paper that has been coated to give it certain properties, like a smoothness or a glossiness. Coated paper can be a great choice for special projects or important marketing pieces, but it is usually more expensive than bond.
