The performance of a document depends upon four things: 1) the type of paper, 2) the printer/ink/toner used to print it, 3) the writing implement, and, 4) the environmental conditions where the document is used. These four things must be compatible to produce a document that is waterproof. We always recommend testing before taking a document into the field or starting an important or costly project. That's why we offer sample kits at a price that approximates our cost of preparing them and delivering them to the customer.
Waterproof Paper Sample Packs
No matter what type of printer you are using, we always recommend setting the printer to produce a document using the smallest amount of ink. To do that, set your printer to "light", "draft", "economy", or another setting that suggests that a small amount of ink will be applied.
