Paper FAQs

What is the difference between centrefeed and normal paper rolls?
Centre feed means that the roll of paper will come from a dispenser or a central point of the roll itself instead of from the outside. Most types will have to have the cardboard core removed prior to use, which enables the roll to unravel freely from the centre. Normal rolls of paper dispense from the outer part of the roll e.g. toilet rolls, min jumbo rolls. Both types of centre feed and normal rolls can be perforated for easy detachment and dispensing.
