Don’t Negate a Perfect Resume with a Bad Paper Choice

You’ve spent time and money creating the perfect resume or CV. Don’t undo all that hard work by printing it on cheap paper stock.
You should bring enough copies for everyone you will be meeting with in your interview. Insure a sharp professional and polished presentation by choosing the right paper:

  • White, off-white, ivory, cream or light grey are the colors that work best in a professional setting.
  • Cotton or linen based stock brings softness and texture.
  • Absolutely no loud or garish colors.
  • And weight is important. Choose 24-28 lb. stock. Less tends to wrinkle and crumble, more feels like a greeting card.

The right paper choice reflects your style and attention to detail — don’t miss a chance to be memorable.
