A "ream" of paper is traditionally 500 sheets, not 250, so this is expensive unless you only need one or two of these a year.

A 'case' of paper is usually 10 reams, but they sell 8 ct cases, 4 ct cases, etc. So as long as they say 250 sheets it doesn't bother me.

As for your other comment, this is $3.70 for a single 500 ream (2 x 250) which is an excellent ONE REAM price. HP is better quality paper than Staples and Hammermill which typically is $37 a case of 10. sometimes on sale for $30. But not everyone needs that much paper.

wow... I didn't know these companies had the criminal minds to call 250-sheet as a "ream"

we the consumer than certain choose not to buy into such BS and ream it to these lousy companies.

what's next? 100-sheet ream? 10-sheet ream? Might as well start selling paper by the sheet or by weight?

Too good to be true. $1.85 for 250 sheets is equivalent to $3.70 for a 500 sheet ream.

I usually pickup 750 page reams, there's no standard amount of pages per ream.

Dozen = 12

Avogadro's number = 6.0221409e+23

Ream = 500

250 and 750 do not equal a ream.

Definition of ream (Entry 1 of 2)
1: a quantity of paper being 20 quires or variously 480, 500, or 516 sheets

a standard measure of paper equal to 500 sheets

https://dictionary.cambridge.org/...glish/ream
a standard measure of paper equal to 500 sheets
The number of sheets in a ream has varied locally over the centuries, often according to the size and type of paper being sold. Reams of 500 sheets (20 quires of 25 sheets) were known in England in c1594;[10] in 1706 a ream was defined as 20 quires, either 24 or 25 sheets to the quire.[11] In 18th- and 19th-century Europe, the size of the ream varied widely. In Lombardy a ream of music paper was 450 or 480 sheets; in Britain, Holland and Germany a ream of 480 sheets was common; in the Veneto it was more frequently 500. Some paper manufacturers counted 546 sheets (21 quires of 26 sheets).[12] J.S. Bach's manuscript paper at Weimar was ordered by the ream of 480 sheets.[13] In 1840, a ream in Lisbon was 17 quires and 3 sheets = 428 sheets, and a double ream was 18 quires and 2 sheets = 434 sheets; and in Bremen, blotting or packing paper was sold in reams of 300 (20 quires of 15 sheets).[14] A mid-19th century Milanese-Italian

dictionary has an example for a risma (ream) as being either 450 or 480 sheets.[15]
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/U...%27%20ream.

there's no real standard quantity on a ream.

Excellent point.

Why are others saying smaller amount at higher price is anywhere near a Slick Deal !!! Is there some vested interest in throwing people into a bad deal?

not really... I'm just a grumpy old man who's upset that Staples doesn't offer free(or 1 penny) box of paper anymore. Smilie

doesn't help that my pile of free Staples paper is now down to just 4 cases.
Great comment

perhaps the free paper deals will come back after the pandemic is completely over. Smilie


since I'm running out of the free Staples paper soon(well, in a few months anyway), I'm actually going in another directly. Now I'm in search of the best printer/copy papers at reasonable prices. If I'm going to pay money for paper, I might as well get good quality paper, right? I'll print the more important stuff on good paper, while reserving the remaining free Staples paper for random junk that I need to print. Smilie

If the prices of lumber keep rising who knows, I think they use some portion of wood to make paper so there's probably relation to lumber.
