Waterproof Paper

ToughPrint Waterproof Paper (Image courtesy Flightstore website)By Andrew Liszewski

Printouts made from a home inkjet printer are easily smeared by even the smallest drops of moisture. (Let alone an entire cup of coffee.) If you’re looking for a more durable solution, and don’t want to drop a small fortune on a dye-sublimation printer then you might want to look into ToughPrint’s line of waterproof papers.

Marketed as being 100% waterproof the paper can be used on any inkjet or laser printer. In addition to being able to simply wipe away water and dirt without smearing the image, they also resist crumpling and tearing making them ideal for outdoor or ‘extreme’ use.

The ToughPrint Waterproof paper comes in both inkjet and laser versions and a pack of 25 sheets runs about $28.00. (And, they’re double-sided.)

    I’ve never used this brand but I’ve been using “Rite in the Rain” paper for years. It’s great paper, I’ve dropped my field book in mud puddles, dump soda on it. Just shake it off and it’s fine. They have all kinds of paper: notebooks of various sizes, coiper or loose leaf paper, even blueprint style paper.

    National Geographic sells Waterproof paper. Sold at REI for $20 for 25 sheets. Works great. Very difficult to tear also. I print out trails for hiking with no issues.
