How to Choose the Right Office Paper for Your Project, Priority and Budget

Anyone that’s ever been to an office supply store will tell you the office paper landscape is confusing. There are a vast array of options, yet it’s difficult to find the paper that truly suits your needs. Domtar Paper has simplified the decision-making process with three office paper brands—Xerox®, LettermarkTM and EarthChoice® Office Paper. Each brand is positioned to help you choose the right paper for your project, priority and budget.

Xerox Paper

The Xerox Paper brand features premium quality paper crafted to provide superior results and perform flawlessly to meet the demands of professional office environments. Whether you’re a professional printer that needs to ‘wow’ your audience, buying for an entire business that needs  to elevate everyday communications or are counting on the desktop printer in your home office to make an unforgettable impression—don’t settle for the ordinary. Let Xerox Paper showcase your ideas and messages in the best possible light. Here’s an overview of the offering from the Xerox Paper line:
