Hard Copy

Wednesday, September 8, 2021


In this age of computers, smart phones, and tablets, it’s easier and more efficient to retain files, documents, receipts, even books, in their digital forms. Quite a space saver! In the tech world, those are referred to as soft copies.

So what do you call something printed on paper? A hard copy, of course. Hard copies don’t require an electronic interface, like computers or mobiles phones, to read and display because they are a printed version on paper of data held in a computer. A hard copy is also known as a printout

Ex: I prefer email receipts but today I needed a “hard copy” for a rebate request.
