Choosing Copy Papers (Buying tips)
Environment: Look for a copy paper that is made with recycled fibers. Recycle copy paper is indistinguishable from non-recycle ones; it offers the same cost and performance. Smoothness: Look for a copy paper that has a smooth surface (as opposed to textured) to produce crisp and sharper results. Brightness: Choose a bright copy paper; the whiter the paper, the better the contrast and visibility. Brightness rating is between 80 and 100; the higher te rating, the brighter the paper.
