This is an overview of Synthetic Paper!

At first glance, synthetic paper looks like your standard printer paper. It is close to the same thickness and color, and prints come out looking the same.

Normal paper is very easily ripped and wrinkled, while synthetic paper holds up under the same extreme conditions.

Synthetic paper is not suitable for inkjet printers, but most any other printer will work.

Do note, that in exiting the printer, your pages will most likely stick to each other from the static electricity created. Simply removing them will keep them from sticking together. Or have a static remover on your printer.

It bends and acts like normal paper. If you can’t tell, the synthetic paper on the right.

One of the biggest differences is that standard 20 pound paper is slightly see through—this synthetic paper is completely opaque.

Between the two pages, it’s almost impossible to tell these basic prints apart from one paper to the other. Again, standard paper, and synthetic paper.

Of course, it is also waterproof. Water simply runs off the page, and the ink does not smudge from the moisture.

The paper is easily cut, and once this happens, it is then easily rip from that spot.

The pages resist folds as well, never really folding flat as seen here.

Even within an inexpensive binding machine, synthetic paper punches cleanly.

And of course, like any normal paper, you can also write on it with your choice of writing utensil. The pencil, and only the pencil will smudge slightly.

With some basic tests we can see how well synthetic paper will hold up. Add in a high quality printer and you could have some a great looking projects that will hold up within heavy use
