Selling waterproof writing supplies since 2003
About UsWaterproofPaper.com is a small family-owned and operated business. We have been selling waterproof paper and writing supplies online since 2003. We know that you, our customer, need and expect a quality product, delivered promptly, in perfect condition, at a reasonable price.
Thousands of customers use our papers to record data, print maps, make signs, post announcements, print instructions, label products, and much more. These jobs are important to their businesses and recreational activities. Although waterproof paper is used mainly when it is raining, it is also used to prevent damage from sweat, humidity, spills, abrasion, dirt, and rough handling.
Creating Waterproof DocumentsA reliable waterproof document depends upon these things:
-- a quality paper
-- a quality printer
-- ink or toner that performs well
-- a writing tool that performs well
-- reasonable expectations
-- testing in the environment of use
We believe that testing is important. For that reason we offer sample packages at approximately our cost of preparing and delivering them in a protective package.
Who Are We?Our business was started in 2003 by Hobart King, a professional geologist who first used waterproof paper in a geology field course in 1975. He recognized the importance of durable waterproof documents and has used waterproof papers in his professional, business, and recreational activities ever since.
In 2003 he started Waterproof-Paper.com and began selling waterproof paper to hikers, geologists, biologists, greenhouses, the U.S. military, nurseries, aquarium shops, foresters, gator farms, running race directors, real estate agents, and just about every kind of business you can imagine. Today he offers them for sale on WaterproofPaper.com and on Geology.com, a website that he has published since 2005. He writes most of the articles and all of the product descriptions that appear on these websites.
