OMR Sheet Printing Paper

OMR Printing Paper

OMR sheets are usually white sheets of paper with bubbles or boxes to be marked by a pencil or a pen. The thickness of a paper has no role to play in the OMR process because the OMR technology uses scanned images of these paper sheets for reading.

New Concept: No Need of Thick Papers for OMR Printing

Old Concept: OMR Printing Requires Thick Paper

Thick papers were a mandatory requirement in the old OMR technology because hardware scanners couldn’t scan thin papers effectively. Also, thin papers were vulnerable to distortions and bends which made scanning and printing less accurate.

When Should the Thick Paper be Used for the OMR Sheet Printing?

Thick papers can be used in examinations to withstand damages due to handling, transportation and logistics. Hence, thicker papers with 90 to 105 GSM are used for OMR printing in such circumstances.
