1) Stack ’em up!

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “ream”, you can refer to our quick A4 paper guide for all the paper related jargon you need to know! Here’s a quick refresher: A ream essentially refers to a packet of paper that contains about 450 sheets of paper. Usually offices would get boxes of A4 paper that would contain 20 reams of paper in a box. Now that’s a lot of boxes AND reams!

Wondering how you can creatively put those unopened paper reams to good use? Stack em’ up! Here’s what happened when one of our tables broke:


As a substitute to fixing the broken table leg, our A4 paper reams and boxes came in handy and saved the day!

Another way A4 paper reams have helped the Supplycart office is by helping us work comfortably (and ultimately #workhappy) by being great desktop stands so our screens are at our eye level.20170823_132151


2) Purchasing paper trays? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

You can save money on purchasing paper trays by DIY-ing your own with your A4 paper boxes. It’s incredibly easy and you only need a pair of scissors and an A4 paper box, or a few depending on how many trays you want to make.

You can make one in a matter of minutes. If you’re using the bottom half of the A4 Paper box, you can cut out a square opening at one of the sides to make it easier to load and unload paper. Easily label your make-shift tray with a post-it note.


Want to save more time? Just use the top cover of the A4 paper box, no scissors required!



3) Game of thrones

Got a whole lot of A4 boxes lying around? You can use it to make furniture (yes, you read that right). Creatively stack ’em up and you can have your very own A4 paper throne where you can sit #likeaboss!



4) Have a (paper) ball of a good time!

If you’ve used both sides of your A4 paper don’t be so quick to put them in the trash can! You can now make recycling in your office more fun by creating games like paper basketball where your colleagues can unleash their inner Michael Jordan or Lebron James.
