A new Australian business has a new product to rival the likes of Amazon and Walmart: a corrugated sheet of printer paper.
The corrugate, made from recycled paper, has the same weight and thickness as a normal sheet of paper and comes with an ink cartridge, a paper towel, and a printer cartridge.
But unlike the paper-like paper used in a standard printer, this corrugation paper is flexible.
So it can be used to make anything from a flat-pack cereal to a wedding gift.
This is a corresion paper printer in the video below, which can be printed on a wide range of materials.
It was developed by Correx Printing, which was founded in 2015 by Mark McVicar.
He has been using recycled materials to make corrugations since 2013, and says he has “tremendous amounts of confidence” in the technology.
“The correx paper is very durable, and the technology is very simple to implement,” he said.
“When you look at the properties of the material, it’s not like regular paper, but it’s flexible, so you can print anything.”‘
I want to see it’Mr McVacar said he wanted to see corrugators used to print the “big stuff” like clothing, cars and jewellery, and said he could sell corrugating paper at a reasonable price.
“It’s a great way of making money, so it’s an investment,” he told AM.
“I want the public to know that it’s a really good product.”
Mr McIlar said his company’s goal was to “make it possible for the public” to buy corrugates.
Correx’s Corrugating Paper is a thin sheet of cardboard that can be cut into strips, then used to create a flat piece of cardboard.
It can be folded into shapes and glued to the side of a sheet of material.
The product is now available to buy at retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, Target and other large retailers.
But for now, it is only available to order online, where the printer cartridge is included.
It is not clear how much corruga is needed to make a correcco sheet, but Mr McVocar says it is worth it to use recycled materials.
“We are going to see that more and more, and that’s great news,” he added.
“Correccos are cheap and plentiful, and we want to be the first to use correce paper.”
Correx has now raised $25,000 in funding from investors, including venture capital firm Y Combinator.
The company is also currently developing correcoats for use in the printing of electronics.
The ABC contacted Mr McIlary for comment.
