Printing Basics: How to Choose the Right Kind of Paper

Feature

The paper you use for everyday printing can save you money—and send a message. Find out exactly what kind you should be using, and when.

Introduction

Once upon a time (and yes, it is something of a fairy tale) futurologists and technology journalists confidently predicted that the arrival of the paperless office was both inevitable and imminent. What with e-mail and the Internet, the inexorable denouement and impending extinction of newspapers and magazines, plus the rise of emerging technologies like e-books and electronic tablets, there would be no compelling reason to continue using expensive, ephemeral, forest-devouring paper.

Alas, the reality has been quite different, because the ubiquitousness of computers and electronic communications hasn’t dented or diminished the use of paper one iota. In fact, we’re consuming more paper than ever. Instead of typing a letter or a report one page at a time, now we hit the “print” button and generate two, 10, or 200 copies without hesitation. And we print out Web pages to read on the train home, generating all those extra pages of ads and menus that we throw right away. (For a look at how to buy photo paper, check out this guide.)

But the big problem most people face is not whether or not to print to paper, but what is the best kind of printer paper to use. The answer is... it all depends.

How do you insert paper in printer.

It depends what printer you have. All printers are different. A Deskjet 970 cxi just has you insert paper at the tray underneath the top tray that can pivot up and down (where the paper comes out).
