Why Is Waterproof Paper A Cost-Effective Option?

We know that waterproof paper allows you to quite literally "write in the rain". What you might not know is why it's so cost-effective.

You can probably hazard a guess at some of the many benefits of waterproof paper. Giving you the ability to quite literally “write in the rain” (or underwater!), waterproof paper is a durable and reliable option for any activity where there might be rain, mud or water involved. We’ve talked about the many practical benefits of carrying a waterproof notebook in our previous blogs. What we haven’t mentioned all that much, and, what you may be less aware of, is the cost-effectiveness of using waterproof paper over regular paper. With this in mind, let’s have a look at why waterproof paper is so economical.

More durable

Manufactured to withstand the likes of rain, mud, oil and other spillages, waterproof paper offers a durable alternative to flimsy notebooks and thin paper. Whilst regular paper products are likely to damage and wear down easily, waterproof paper will not tear or disintegrate, even when soaked in water. This will reduce the amount of money you need to spend on buying replacement stationery.

Less waste

If you’re using a regular notebook outdoors and it starts to rain then you’re likely to lose a few sheets of paper to tearing and disintegration. With a Rite In The Rain waterproof notebook this will never be the case. No matter what the conditions are, you’re guaranteed to get use out of every single sheet of paper. Likewise, if you’re printing important documents onto waterproof printer paper, you can be sure you’ll only need to print them once. The durability of waterproof printer paper means that documents will not tear or smudge, even when faced with rain or spillages. This means that less paper is wasted and therefore less money, as well as a likely reduction in printing costs.

When it comes to waterproof paper, it really is a case of one size fits all. Waterproof paper is perfectly suited to any job or leisure activity, whether that’s indoors or outdoors. Our waterproof notebooks are relied upon by a range of professionals who work outside including agriculturists, geologists and the military, but also by those who work inside and are looking for a more durable and reliable alternative to regular notebooks. What we’re trying to get at is that waterproof paper is suitable for any activity. This means you can invest in high quality stationery rather than spending lots of money on different items for indoor and outdoor activities.
