Today we will be looking at Amazon's "store brand" AmazonBasics paper.
Amazon, much like any other modern day retailer, has their own brand. In this case, it's AmazonBasics. AmazonBasics offers everyday items like electronics, kitchen appliances, pet supplies, office products, and more.
But is this "store brand" paper the best route?
Now, when buying printer paper there are a few things to look at. Weight refers to the thickness and durability of the paper. 20 lb. is the standard weight and most common paper used. Brightness refers to how bright the paper is. This determines how crisp letters, images, and colors are.
Prices can vary based on the weight and brightness, so we are only comparing 20lb. 92 brightness papers today. Paper is also sold by ream (500 sheets). We will be looking at 5 ream cases today.
AmazonBasics has a case for $24.99. Under $5 per ream on Amazon.
Hammermill has a case also for $24,99, also under $5 per ream on Amazon.
HP Also sells a case for the same price on Amazon.
Georgia Pacific has a case for just $16.43. Just over $3 per case at Walmart.
Coming in as our top pick for every day printer paper, Georgia Pacific blows the competition away.
If you're looking to save some cash, definitely skip the Amazon Basics and pick up a pack of Georgia Pacific next time you need some printer paper.
