What is Paper?

The paper was traditionally made from rags for drawing, writing and markings, essentially a huge step up from cave drawings and a way to create manuscripts and documents.

Now the paper has been refined into thin, white sheets, easily found in books, notepads, leaflets, and newspapers. It's everywhere and easily accessible to obtain and use.

In the productivity world, many of us prefer paper for jotting down ideas and enjoying the physical experience of writing. Especially for things like journaling and brain dumps.

Who is Paper Best Suited For?

Paper can be used for teams and individual use. Most commonly used by individuals for their own purposes, but larger sheets of paper can be used to present meetings and ideas. Paper isn't too expensive but you can definitely buy more premium kinds of paper.
