Hp Laserjet 24Lb Paper Good Quality And A Nice Writing Experience

Recommended Posts

I was looking for some paper that was a little more budget friendly than the oft recommended HP Premium 32 lb paper, also something a little lighter weight. I am planning on binding up some books and the 32 lb makes a fat book with too few pages for my current needs. I found the HP LaserJet 24lb paper at my local Staples for $12/ 500 sheets.

 

I tested it out with a variety of my pens, from an EF to M to Noodler's Flex. No feathering, no bleed through, only some show through when I used the Noodler's flex but even that wasn't bad.

 

The writing experience was smooth. Just enough drag to be nice and not feel like the pen was slippery. To me it was the perfect amount of drag. Not as smooth as a Rhodia but way smoother than cheap copy paper. Very pleasant.

 

At 24lb it feels slightly heavier than regular copy paper. It's much lighter weight than the 32lb paper, which feels like cardstock to me.

 

At roughly 2 cents a sheet it's a good deal in my book.

I'll post some pictures of the package and a writing sample when I get home. I found the paper on Walmart's website for $8 or $9 plus 97 cent shipping in the US. Wish I'd looked before I went to staples, could have had it delivered to my home for $2 less a package.

Seriously, have you checked Etsy.com yet?

This is one of my go-to papers, too. Nice weight and nice FP characteristics. A multi-page letter doesn't go over an ounce, either.

I know Staples will match prices in the store and they may also do it online. My recommendation is to take a screen shot and call them on the phone. Explain the situation and be ready to email the screen shot to verify. Remember too that Staples offer a 5% rewards benefit and depending on some plans you may be eligible for free shipping from Staples.

 

Good luck and keep us posted :thumbup: :thumbup:

Sorry for the double "multiquote" Still getting the hang of this new site stuff.

Good to know! I'll have to try that for my next package. That'll be better than buying from Walmart.

Hi,

 

I use the HP LaserJet 24lb in my Ink Reviews as a 'standard' for a very good inexpensive acid-free utility paper, so there's a plethora of ink+pen samples using that paper to be found in the Ink Review Forum.

Hi,

 

Yes: CHP310; A4; 90 gsm.

 

Here's the HP UK site link: http://www8.hp.com/uk/en/products/oas/product-detail.html?oid=14907

 

As paper is costly to ship, I'd check with your local stockists of office goods & equipment.

Hi,

 

You're most welcome!

 

After I found that paper, I stopped looking for a 'utility' paper, so there may be other suitable 90gsm laser C/P papers in the market. In that price range, I suggest steering clear of multi-purpose, inkjet & colour laser papers.

 

Bye,

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.
