Why Boise POLARIS Premium Paper Makes All The Difference in Your Home Office


Boise Polaris Paper

Between me working from home and my daughter’s school projects, we use a lot of printer paper. My youngest daughter is only 4 and not in school yet and we work on her letters, math, and writing at home. To help me do this, I print a lot of materials. Not to mention all the coloring pages that my girls insist of printing out (on a daily basis!). I have learned the hard way that choosing the right printer paper for the task at hand is very important. You can’t just stick any old paper into your mobile printers and expect great results. If you choose the wrong paper you can end up with ink bleeding through to the other side (or your desk or table), jammed paper, smudged paper, and even ripped paper. That is why I have teamed up with Boise POLARIS Premium Paper to help you discover the right paper for the job.

As a mom, this brand of paper has me over the moon for many reasons – one of which is that each ream has Box Tops for Education. My daughter’s school collects these and kids can earn extra gym time by turning in the most each month, so having our steady stream of paper help her out with that makes us both happy. Another reason I love this brand is that when I print school work or contracts, they look professional. Clear printing, nice feeling paper, and no smudges, no rips and tears, and no bleeding through.

The first time I opened up these reams of paper, I could instantly tell that they were far superior to any paper I have used in the past. They are thicker and smoother, making it near impossible for ink to bleed through. When I print contracts I like to print double sided to save paper – and some brands make that impossible since I can see right through them. Just comparing this paper to paper I have used in the past was surprising. Look at the photo above and you can see how the Boise Polaris paper is so much whiter than the other paper.

  13. Susan Hartman on

    At the moment I look for the best quality paper without spending a fortune. Most of what I print is for my use but it has not always been that way.

  14. Susan Hartman on

    Right now most of what I print out is for my personal use. I therefore become very cheap and look for papare at a good price.

  15. I would use the Boise POLARIS® Inkjet paper.
    I have a question. If I order a couple or more reams of this paper through your link, does that mean I only have one hour to pick it up at the store?
    Because when I click the link, it said free one hour pickup. That’s not very long at all or did I read this wrong?

  16. Sherry Compton on

    I look for a nice texture that won’t be sheer and see through. I think the Multipurpose would be a big help to me.

  17. The Boise POLARIS® Inkjet paper or even the Multi – Purpose paper would be great for me. But I would probably look for the inkjet first.

  18. Lisa Coomer Queen on

    I would pick the Boise POLARIS® Inkjet paper. I don’t use much so I can choose quality on this.

  19. If all types of paper were the same, we wouldn’t need to pick. So I’ll pick the
    Boise POLARIS® Inkjet paper.

  20. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of coupon printing from home and the stores are getting really picky if their scanners can’t read the printed barcodes!
    So I would use the POLARIS® Inkjet paper to get the best print quality to achieve this goal.

  21. Jerry Marquardt on

    I like the Card Stock and Plain White Paper the most of all fine Boise products. I look for quality and reasonable price for better quality product .
