Title: Free freezer paper, Aus-wide
Post by: pickupsticks on October 06, 2006 05:51:46 PM
After reading the freezer paper threads here on crafster, I just had to share this really cool info that I learned at my local quilt group....the copy paper that you buy here in aus, is wrapped in freezer paper (or at least, something very similar, that works the same)....really, it works!...there's more on my blog

Hi Rachikus,
the A4 printer paper that you buy (reflex etc) is wrapped in a sheet of printed freezer paper...the freezer paper isn't the paper inside, but the actual paper packaging. You just need to unwrap it carefully, cut off the glued outside edges, and you have a fairly big sheet of freezer paper  :) how cool is that?!!! There is a photo of my paper 'stash' in the october archives on my blog

  I doubt it, but it can't hurt to aim for a more expensive/reputable brand if you are concerned. 

I have been thinking about it, and believe the wax coating is there to provide some protection from moisture.  I think that is why they use so much glue too, to achieve some kind of seal.  Just a little moisture on your pages sends copy machines crazy.  So I doubt there are any brands that don't have the wax, because no office would buy it.

It is a moisture-resistant coating. Go for brands that officeworks and other office stationery stores stock as they should have a good quality coating on them at the risk of losing their corporate clients.
