Abstract

A resealable paper ream wrapper for electrophotographic copier and printer cut sheet paper stock is disclosed. A reusable adhesive composition, for example, as found on Post-itT"notes from 3M Corp., is applied to ream wrapper seals at the point of manufacture rather than a current use hot melt glue. A reusable adhesive seal on ream wrappers allows a customeriuser to reseal partially used paper reams. A resealable paper ream wrapper protects paper stock from: changes in humidity, particulate contamination, and eliminates spotting from excess glue. Protected paper stock performs more reliably in printing and copying machines because of less paper curl and therefore less paper jamming. Protected paper stock insures high copy quality by excluding contamination and minimizing variation in humidity.
