Gmail Paper For Real (Sort Of)

From the Springwise newsletter, April 4th – reminds you of the Gmail Paper hoax:

An innovative Japanese company is offering university students free photocopies. This free love is made possible by printing ads on the back of the copy paper, which is slightly thicker than normal to prevent ads from shining through. For JPY 400,000, advertisers can have their message printed on 10,000 sheets of paper.
