Color Printing Paper

SORT BY:
Printing technology makes it possible to get color copies and prints that are as crisp and clear as black and white copies. Businesses that print or copy color documents need high-quality color copy paper that accurately duplicates the quality of original documents.

Choose the Brightness Level for any Printing Job
In the category of white printing paper, many factors affect the copy quality. Brightness indicates the amount of contrast between a piece of paper and its printed materials. The higher the brightness number, the more contrast you get with color print jobs. Typical brightness levels include 92, 96, 98 and 100.

Various Paper Weights Provide Stability
An important option when printing is paper thickness. Heavier paper stands up to folding and repeated handling, while the lighter paper is ideal for handouts and long documents. Paper weight refers to the weight of 500 sheets of a particular type of paper. Standard copy paper is generally between 20 and 24 pounds. Heavier digital paper options often weigh 32 pounds, 60 pounds, 70 pounds or 80 pounds. Heavier paper is an option for signs, graphic copies and official documents.

Different Dimensions fit a Range of Printers
The most common size for color printing paper is 8.5 x 11 inches, which fits standard home and business printers and copiers. Other copy paper sizes allow companies to replicate documents of varying dimensions easily. Legal copy paper measures 8.5 x 14 inches. Other sizes available include 12 x 18 inches, 13 x 19 inches and 11 x 17 inches.

How Much Copy Paper can Users Order at Once?
The options produced by paper brands permit professionals to order enough for any copy job. One ream is 500 sheets, which is suitable for most home copying jobs and small office jobs. Paper is available by the half-case. This option holds 5 reams of paper. Full cases hold 10 reams of paper. With Staples Auto Restock, users can set up automatic ordering of certain types of copy paper.

What Makes Color Copy Paper Ideal for Color Printing?
Standard copy paper options are excellent for black-and-white copies. Color copying paper is meant to reproduce the full spectrum of colors accurately, ensuring that documents are duplicated with true-to-life colors. Because of this, color copying paper is a popular option for photography copying.

Which Brightness Level is Optimal?
Consider which document types you plan on copying. Photos need brighter paper to maintain their original tones and shades. Written documents typically look clear and easy-to-read on paper of any brightness level. Digital paper with higher levels appears more opaque than paper of lower ratings. For many users, printing the same document on multiple types of paper is the easiest way to determine which brightness level produces the desired results.

With specialized copy paper, users feel confident knowing that their copies are true duplicates of original documents. Whether you need to print colored text documents, graphic designs or photographs, look into color copying paper for your copying needs. Browse Staples listings to find paper of the right size, brightness and weight.
