PaperStrutters: getting our steps in for a good cause

Lockdown in the UK is hard.

We wanted to make sure that we enabled the team to be able to stay connected, stay motivated, and offer help to create and maintain the family ethos that our company holds dear.

From that desire, we formed… The PaperStrut Challenge.

PaperCut connector a breeze for super early Universal Print adopters

For some workplaces, the idea of joining a product’s beta program for an entire school district would make them nervous. Not for Val Verde.

Working as an intern in a pandemic

When I started as an RMIT intern at PaperCut I never would have guessed my tiny studio apartment would also be my workplace.

How the pandemic’s changed printing (for good)

Helping you find better ways to return to the workplace

The PaperCut ecosystem can help you plan for those challenges.

Does COVID-19 mark the end of the office?

Many are claiming that COVID-19 might bring about the long-anticipated end of office working.

On the ground in Wuhan: a COVID-19 AMA

Since late last year one of our software engineers, Mike Zhang, has been locked down in Wuhan, China; ground zero of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

We recently held an AMA with Mike where he fielded questions from all PaperCutters on what it’s been like living in the epicentre of COVID-19. This blog was repackaged from his responses.

Living our values in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic

On Monday 16 March, PaperCut offices shifted to a “Distributed Working” model. Yep, these very words were typed from the comfort of my home office.

One of the things helping us hold it together is remembering our company values and bringing them to the forefront of our new daily routine.
