A paper writer knows the value of picking the right paper when it comes to creating their work. But when you’re about to write an essay, term paper, dissertation, or thesis, how do you know which type of paper to use? Should you choose from these three options? If so, how do you select one over the other? Here are some tips on how to choose the right paper writer service based on your assignment and needs.


Why Pick From Our Sheet Bundle Pack?

Writing is a craft—there’s no other way to describe it. And like all crafts, some people are better at it than others. It takes practice and patience to hone your craft, but we believe in helping you start out on your path with the best tools available. So, if you’re looking for cheap paper sheets for writing , look no further than our sheet bundle pack .

Our sheets are made from 30% cotton fiber, 70% post-consumer waste and 100% recycled ingredients —an eco-friendly blend that helps reduce our footprint on Earth while keeping your desk pristine! Best of all?


A4 (210mm x 297mm)

A paper size that is used by several countries including France, Germany, Italy and Sweden. It is also used by some international organizations including NATO. A4 paper is most commonly used for reports or as a presentation or writing pad. It can also be used for printing postcards if you plan on making a lot of them. You could fit four A4 pages side-by-side with another piece of paper using it as an envelope, but only if it’s not too thick because you don’t want all your writing or art covered up when it gets sent back to you!


Legal (216mm x 356mm)

Legal is slightly longer and wider than A4, and contains about 28.8 sheets of plain paper. It’s commonly used for printing contracts, legal documents, and forms such as order form, work orders, purchase orders, etc. This size paper is available in both bright white (called matt in some regions) and creme varieties. Sometimes called foolscap or tabloid (in other countries), legal-sized paper can be purchased from most office supply shops. It’s also one of three sizes (the others being A4 and executive) that many printers allow you to choose when setting up a print job on your computer.


Foolscap (250mm x 380mm)

When you need a heavier, higher-quality paper for printing or calligraphy. Recycled foolscap is used for books and fine print documents. Its most common use is in non-legal sized US checks, but foolscap can also be used for maps, posters and other presentation materials. In Europe it’s known as royal writing paper (Lb 20 x 27cm). Foolscap is usually 90lb/145gsm weight and white/cream colored but other colors are available at an additional cost. You should always choose your paper based on its intended use, not its name or appearance. Fools cap paper is not foolproof! Only use it if you really need it!


Crown Quarto (216 mm x 275 mm)

This is a long and narrow paper size (similar in size to both Foolscap and ANSI A) that typically measures 20 inches x 26 inches. The length of these papers allows you to write more on them than would be possible with Crown Octavo, which makes them perfect for long texts such as essays or books. If you’re unsure what standard size of paper your printer can handle, look at its manual or check online; if it is equipped with an A4 or 8 1⁄2 by 11 inch tray, then it can accommodate Crown Quarto sized pages. When ordering from a professional paper writing service, ask about their inventory of Crown Quarto; some may offer only A4 and US Letter sizes.


US Letter (8.5 x 11)

Most papers in college will be written on a US Letter-sized sheet of paper. The standard size, shape and weight makes it easy for printers and other vendors to supply your needs. Although some class assignments may require you use a different sized paper, most papers will be due on or around 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. You can expect any college level writing assignment due in class or handed in as part of your final grade to require using a US Letter-sized sheet of paper.
