We use paper today in almost every activity and on a day to day bases. For this we should thank the Chinese from a couple of millennia ago; they were the ones that first made and than perfected the art of making paper. With the Europeans getting in China the spread of paper went global.

Until the boost of technology seen from years now, paper was the one used in every thing that involved office work. It still used today bat computers have greatly improved the life and work load of people working in that area.

To further increase the productivity and the results of office work people have developed a way to speed things up. They do this with the help of forms. Made with certain specifications forms are used in almost anything today: from paying a bill to applying for a job or just for a simple statistic.

A form is a document that contains blank fields that the user can feel in with what he writes. Most often information on the form will later on be transferred to a computer data base where it is possible to analyze them from a statistic point of view. Most recently it has been possible for people to write on computer forms. The paper is completely removed from the situation in this case and the person just has to fell in the blank spot in the form that he visualize on a computer or laptop. The computer forms have speed up things even more in the lives of people working in this field.

The term computer form is also used for those forms that are specifically made for software or hardware manufacturers. In this types of forms trouble free compatibility is absolutely guaranteed. Invoices, statements and purchase orders are also in the category of forms and are produced also to better improve the process of accounting and general office work.

Running the business properly this days would not be possible without the help of forms. Not only to they speed up things but certain actions and process could not be possible with out them. Still because of the wide variety of computer forms available on the market and the areas where they can be used has made compatibility somewhat of a problem. One must always be careful on what type of forms he uses.

Another paper aspect of office life that we are going to look at are the self-contained rolls. Paper rolls have a wide variety of usage, but the most common area where they are most likely to be found is either in accounting offices or cash register at local supermarkets. ATMs are also places where self-contained paper rolls are used.

Certain measures must be taken in order not to encounter any problems. The manufacturer must use the best quality paper and process to manufacture the self-contained rolls. If low grade paper is used either in cash registers or any other machines that use self-contained rolls serious problems may appear because of the dust that the low grade paper leaves. The build up of dust over time will eventually cause the jamming of the printer rendering the machine useless. Caution and attention should always be used when buying self contained rolls if problems are to be avoided and if the business or work are to function correctly and according to plans.
