Some Neutral and Alkaline Office Papers

A list of 20 alkaline copy papers was published in the in first issue of this newsletter. Since then, some of those have disappeared and several new ones have come on the market, a total of about 30, counting the laser copy papers but not the duplicator or mimeo papers.

Office papers are more versatile than they used to be, and increasingly serve two or more purposes (e.g. photocopy, "dual purpose." and offset) equally well. In the list below

The list includes neutral and alkaline bond as well as xerographic and laser papers, in cut sheets only. It does not include duplicator papers, which are for spirit duplicators ("Ditto" machines), forms bond (used for computer paper and printed form), MICR bond or other exotic types, or say private brands, even those that are well-known like Gestetner, because they are not distributed through paper merchants nationwide. These are only the mill brands. Some of then are made by mills that converted only recently, so in case of doubt they should be tested with a pH pen before purchase

More details on these papers, and on hundreds of other alkaline fine papers, can be found in the 1989-90 Competitive Grade Finder ($25 from Grade Finders, 215/524-7070). For information on availability in your area, call the company or the paper merchants in the Yellow Pages of the nearest big city
