Paper Weight Guide

80 – 100gsm: The weight range of standard office paper, used in your desktop laser printer or photocopier and would rarely be used for brochures.

110 – 120gsm: Commonly used for stationary paper for things such as letterheads and compliment slips.

130 – 170gsm: Heavier, more durable paper usually used for posters, leaflets, flyers and pages inside a book.

170 – 200gsm: This is the midway point between paper and card. It can be used for brochure covers and is great when used for more luxurious posters or quality double sided flyers.

250 – 300gsm: Moving away from paper, this is regarded as card (board) weights which can add a quality finish to a book if used as a cover.

350 – 400gsm: Usually the weights of a good business card. Some will use 300gsm, or less, for a business card but we do not recommend it.  350gsm can also be used as a cover for your book but it’s important to remember the stitching and folding implications of using heavy board as a cover.

400gsm and above: Some luxury business cards are printed on weights up to 1190gsm. Business cards would be considered thick and very good quality at above 400gsm.
