Just A Fraction Of An Inch From Perfect
Reviewed in the United States on May 30, 2018
When I placed the order, I was unsure of the color; I wanted a true red and everything I'd seen locally had an orange cast. The color was perfect for my needs.
We have an alarm company with the word American in our name, so in keeping with the theme, our reports are printed on white paper, using the red as section dividers. The reports are then bound with a navy blue back cover and clear front.
With the exception of the front and back covers, all pages have printed text; and this is the problem. When the paper arrived, I did notice that it was a bit wider and longer than standard 8 1/2" X 11" paper but didn't expect to have a problem with it. When printing reports, all of the paper is loaded in the order it's to be printed, 1 white cardstock, 2 whites a red, 4 whites a red, 5 whites a red, etc. To do as we have always done, the paper guides had to be reset to allow for the extra 1/8" width. Everything printed on the red paper was perfectly straight. Unfortunately, the standard sized white paper kept shifting within the guides and the pages were either printed crooked or jammed in the printer. We finally gave up and started trimming the paper to match the standard size. It's been a few months and we only have about 400 more sheets to trim!
Update: I did finally give up and donated the oversized red and ordered another pack. The sizing of the new pack is exactly 8 1/2" X 11" and for that, it got a star upgrade.
