There are many types of paper, and many people cannot distinguish between two or more types of paper. Take printing paper and photocopy paper for example, many people still foolishly cannot distinguish between them. They usually think that these two are what we call A4 paper, but in fact, they are not. There are differences between the two. Below is an introduction from the editor of China Paper Industry Network:
1、 Copy paper
Copy paper, also known as A4 printing paper, is the most consumed type of paper in office copiers. Usually, the copy paper we see is packaged in packages, and the quality of the copy paper directly affects the material quality reflected in the text. Usually, the specifications of copy paper are divided into A4, A3, B5, B4, A5, A6, etc. Common models mainly include these, and there are also some uncommon users who are relatively few. According to weight, they can be divided into 70g, 80g, and 120g. If the thickness exceeds this, it is not copy paper.
When purchasing copy paper, it is necessary to consider the thickness, density, stiffness, and brightness of the paper. The requirements for the paper vary depending on the situation and function. The thicker the paper, the finer the density, the better the strength, and the higher the smoothness, the more expensive the price. Everyone can choose according to their own needs.
Copy paper is mainly used for printing and copying office documents, such as photocopying of ID cards and various supporting materials, and printing of contract quotation schemes.
2、 Printing paper
Printing paper is a type of paper used for printing and copying documents. The specifications of printing paper can be divided into single layer, two layer, three layer, four layer, and five layer according to the hierarchy. Currently, the maximum number of layers is five. According to size, it can be divided into two types: 241 and 381, with 241 being A4 and 381 being A3. The main use of printing paper is for needle printers, printing delivery notes, and so on.
The above is the specific content introduced by the editor of China Paper Industry Network. After reading it, everyone should have a better understanding of printing paper and copy paper. We hope that everyone should consider carefully when choosing paper and not be lost in the numerous types of paper they need.
