Eco Certified Copy Paper

SORT BY:
Reduce your office carbon footprint by choosing eco-certified copy paper for your printers and photocopiers. This type of printer paper is not only for eco-conscious consumers. Eco-certified paper is just as strong and suitable as regular copy paper. Using it benefits the environment and contributes to making your business greener. Staples® carries a wide selection of eco-certified paper supplies from multiple leading brands of office stationery.

Choose Between Eco-Certified Copy Paper and Printer-Specific Paper
Copy paper is the most commonly used type of printer paper. You can write on it and use it in copiers and all-in-one printers. This multi-purpose stationery is compatible with both inkjet and laser printers. Most often supplied as plain, matte, and uncoated sheets, copy paper handles printed text and images well. It is more affordable than premium options like inkjet and laser paper, which are usually heavier and brighter than copy paper and have features that optimize them for specific printers. For example, laser paper has a hard surface meant to withstand the high temperatures required to imprint toner particles while inkjet paper has a coated surface that improves liquid ink absorption and minimizes smearing. Unlike a copy paper, you cannot use inkjet paper in a laser printer or laser paper in an inkjet. Doing so can damage the printer and will produce poor quality prints.

Key Features to Consider When Shopping for Eco-Certified Copy Paper
The two most important features to consider when shopping for eco-certified printer paper are size and weight. Letter size copy paper is the most common with a dimension of 8.5 x 11 inches. You can also find recycled copy paper in legal (8.5 x 14 inches) and even larger sizes. In the U.S., paperweight is a measure of thickness. Typical eco-friendly copy paper has a weight of 20 pounds. Thicker paper is stronger, more durable, and makes printed documents look more professional. Choose 24 or 28-pound copy paper for your important business reports and contracts.

Will Using Eco-Certified Copy Paper Void Your Printer Warranty?
No. The type of paper used in your printer does not affect the machine's warranty. Quality brands of eco-certified paper are not more likely to shred or jam than regular printer paper.

How Do You Recognize Eco-Certified Copy Paper?
Look for the mark of a reputable certifying agency on the package. Highly regarded bodies that award environmental certifications for printer paper products include the FSC® (Forestry Stewardship Council), EcoLogo®, and Green Seal™.

What Is the Brightness of Eco-Certified Paper?
Brightness indicates the contrast between printed text and paper background. While manufacturers sometimes use whiteness and brightness interchangeably, the two terms are slightly different. Brightness measures the reflection of a specific wavelength of blue light while whiteness measures the reflection of all wavelengths of visible light. The brightness scale goes from 0 to 100. The brighter a copy paper, the more vibrant it is. General-purpose printer paper has a brightness level between 80 and 90. For high-quality prints, look for eco-friendly copy paper with brightness rating between 92 and 98.
