Expert Commentary

Paper quality is important, depending on your purpose and if you’re using it for personal or professional use. For worksheets, paper that will be recycled, or itineraries, I use the most eco-friendly option that is made from recycled materials. For printing higher-quality pages like resumes or a student’s reports, I use a thicker, higher-quality paper. For households and classrooms printing a lot for everyday use, I recommend choosing an affordable recycled paper and keeping a higher-quality, thicker paper on hand in case you need to print nicer items.
