Top 6 Best 8 ½” x 14″ and 11″ x 17″ Paper Joggers

11" x 17" Paper JoggersIf you are jogging paper larger than your standard letter size document, you are probably going to need a slightly more robust and capable paper jogger than your standard run-of-the-mill design. At ABC Office we offer several paper joggers (found here) that can be used to handle both 8 ½” x 14″ legal size paper and large 11″ x 17″ documents. The model you choose will depend on how many sheets you need to jog and where the paper jogging will take place. I would like to recommend some of our highest-rated models in this article.

A paper jogger, for those of you unfamiliar with the technology, uses a motor to generate fast vibrations that quickly cause jumbled sheets of paper to re-align into a squared-up stacks. This helps keep paper organized when placing it in a copy machine, paper folder,  tabletop printer and in other paper handling machines. It also helps to eliminate static electricity and cuts down on jams. Some paper joggers also use air during the jogging process to help align pages and dry wet ink as they come out of a printing press.

At ABC Office, we offer paper jogging machines from such brands as Martin Yale, Lassco, Formax and MBM. All of the paper joggers we offer are great machines, but not all can be used with larger 11″ x 17″ paper. Over the years we have had a lot of luck with the following models.
