This Printable, Waterproof, Rip Proof, Paper Could Be Perfect for the Jobsite

June 2, 2020 Shane Hedmond

The construction industries method of choice for note taking and filling out paperwork is still, generally speaking, pen and paper.  That can pose a problem when trying to fill out paper documents on a jobsite that’s not only dusty, dirty, and muddy, but also when it’s raining.  It’s kind of a hassle to bring back a soggy stack of notes to the office and trying to figure out what that big smudge blob. I can’t even count how many times I’ve seen a set of plans with several coffee ring stains on them, as well.

건설현장에서 유용한 인쇄 가능하고, 방수, 복사 방지되는 용지

   서류를 작성하는 건설현장에서 필수적인 것은 필기도구와 종이다. 그것은 먼지, 더러움, 진흙뿐만 아니라 비가 올 때도 문제가 될 수 있다. 눅눅한 노트가 쌓여 있는 것을 사무실로 가지고 와서 그 큰 얼룩이 무엇인지 알아내려고 하는 것은 좀 번거로운 일일 것이다. 

최근에 TerraSlate라는 회사는 방수 복사 용지를 우연히 발견했는데, 아직 시도해 보지 않았지만, 업계 공통의 문제를 잠재적으로 해결할 수 있을 것 같다. 이 용지는 모든 표준 레이저 프린터에서 인쇄할 수 있으며 볼펜, 샤피 또는 연필로 쓸 수 있다고 한다. 다양한 크기와 무게로 제공되지만, 전체 크기의 도면 세트를 충분히 큰 용지로 사용하려면 맞춤 주문을 해야 힌다.

선택하는 종이가 두꺼울수록 내구성은 높아지지만, 가격은 함께 올라간다. 찢어지면 안 되지만, 접어서 구멍을 뚫을 수도 있다. 아마도 가장 중요한 것은 COVID-19의 시기에는 살균도 가능한 것일 것이다.

회사가 돈이 넘쳐나지 않는 한 표준 복사용지를 대체하지는 않을 것이다. 표준 복사 용지보다 훨씬 더 많은 비용이 든다. 가장 얇은 8.5" x 11" 방수용지 중 가장 작은 팩의 경우 한 장에 1달러가 조금 넘지만, 10,000장를 사면 한 장에 0.64달러까지 가격이 내려갑니다. 여전히 비용이 많이 들지만, 현장 표지판이나 공사 문서와 같은 특정 상황에서 확실히 가치를 발휘할 수 있다.

I just recently came across a waterproof, rip proof, copy paper from a company called TerraSlate and, while I haven’t tried it yet, it seems like it could potentially solve a common problem for the industry. The company says that the paper can be printed on any standard laser printer (but NOT inkjet printers) and can be written on with a ballpoint pen, Sharpie, or pencil (although they say a pencil could smear). It comes in a variety of different sizes and weights, although if you wanted a paper big enough full size set of drawings, you will need to reach out to them for a custom order.

The thicker the paper you choose, the more durability you’ll get, but the price rises with it. Although it shouldn’t tear, it can still be folded and hole punched.  Perhaps most importantly in these times of COVID-19, it can also be sanitized.

Unless your company is swimming in money, this isn’t going to replace your standard copier paper – it costs considerably more than the good ole ream of the standard stuff. For the smallest pack of the thinnest 8.5” x 11” waterproof paper, you’ll pay a little over a dollar a sheet, but the price drops with higher quantities, all the way down to $0.64 per sheet if you buy 10,000.  Still expensive, but could definitely provide value in specific situations, such as jobsite signage or the community set of construction documents.

If you want a weatherproof notebook for yourself personally, there’s always the trusted Rite in the Rain notebook, which comes in many different sizes and varieties. As I was looking through their website, I also saw that they too offer an all-weather printer paper in various sizes and colors.  They don’t tout and rip-proof qualities, but they do provide the trusted water resistance that Rite in the Rain users have taken advantage of for years. You can also use ball point pens, Sharpies, and pencil on these notebooks and paper.

Below is a video from TerraSlate showing the features of their waterproof, rip-proof paper.  Tell me what you think of these two options in the comments below!
