This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% mine. Paper. An ordinary product found almost everywhere. We have it at home, in the office, in school, hospitals and about everywhere else. For such an ordinary product, it does extraordinary things. It helps us communicate, to decorate, to document and more. It has been around for thousands of years. I daresay without it, the world would if not halt completely, it sure would slow down! No matter what you think about paper, I am going to blow your mind!
Many of us head to the office supply store and grab a ream of paper that is the most affordable. We want to save a few bucks wherever we can, right? But what about value versus money? What if the paper you are buying is actually costing you more than you realize? What if the wrong paper can mean the success or failure of a school project or office presentation? Well, guess what? It can. And my daughter and I found this out the hard way a few weeks ago.
Caitlin and her Robotics team are preparing for their spring competition in a few weeks. Caitlin’s department is in charge of costumes. Part of their costumes are the team buttons. We printed the designs for the buttons at home, on the paper I bought from the office supply store. I paid $4.50. Every 10th piece of paper or so jammed. What a pain. Caitlin took the stack of printed paper to school and her team leader said the color was off. The next day, I received a delivery of Boise POLARIS® Premium papers. We printed the designs on the Boise POLARIS® Premium Multipurpose paper. The difference was night and day.
With the cheap paper, the design was slightly blurred and the color was washed out. With the Premium Multipurpose paper from Boise POLARIS® Premium papers, the image was crisp and clear and the color was bright and vivid. Her team captain was over the moon with how the buttons looked. And the difference in price was just a few dollars. Lesson learned!
With Boise POLARIS® Premium papers, you get exceptional paper you can trust for printing those important documents. No matter if it is for your kid’s homework or an important presentation for work, their paper gives you excellent document imaging and consistent results every time.
For printing general documents, I recommend you use the Boise POLARIS® Premium Multipurpose paper. it prints bright and crisp images and text and is 99.99% jam free. It comes in 20 lb. or 24 lb. packs and features ColorLok Technology™. Their Premium Laser paper is perfect for proposals and presentations with color charts and graphs. It has been engineered specifically for premium performance in laser copiers and printers. It is optimized for two-sided printing with clear definition and minimal show-through. The Inkjet paper is for your projects that need bold colors and vivid blacks like photos or flyers, certificates, and announcements. If you want to compare your usual paper with the high quality papers from Boise POLARIS, hold them up to the light. You will see the minimal amount of show-through on the POLARIS paper.
