The proof is in the paper
There is nothing more frustrating than hearing the tell-tale beep from the printer mid-way through a print job. Paper jam! After my last adventure in clearing a paper jam, I decided to look into what exactly causes these seemingly random paper jams and what I could do to help prevent future jams.
One of the most surprising and overlooked causes of jams is the paper quality itself. I had no idea, but even a minor inconsistency in paper thickness can lead to paper jams. Cheap paper also has a higher tendency to have creased or wrinkled sheets mixed in, which are a sure recipe for disaster.
If you’re like me, you’re used to going to the discount store and buying the cheapest ream of paper you can find. I decided to put this newfound knowledge to the test, and I got 3 different reams of Boise Paper products, each of which has a 99.99% Jam-Free® Performance Guarantee. I printed through all three reams – Boise® X-9® Multi-Use Copy paper, Boise® ASPEN® 30 Multi-Use Recycled Copy paper, and Boise® POLARIS® Premium Multipurpose paper. 1500 sheets later, and not a single jam! Since I historically had at least 1 jam every ream, going through these 3 reams with no jams was a major improvement!
If you are struggling with jams, check your paper quality. Boise’s 99.99% Jam-Free® Performance Guarantee lives up to its name. No time or money lost because of a jam!
Less is More
After discovering the culprit of my paper jams, I switched permanently to Boise Paper products. Choosing high-quality products keeps my business running smoothly. I spend less time fixing paper jams, and more time on import things like growing my business. My productivity has increased and I’m more efficient than ever! There is something to be said for the old adage: Quality over Quantity. The proof is in the paper.
