Confused about paper specifications? You’re not alone.
The weight of paper stock is commonly referenced in standard term grammage, measured in grams per square meter, or GSM.
Since the density of paper varies by paper type, there is not a direct correlation between weight and thickness. This means that one type of paper that is 200 GSM is not necessarily twice as thick as 100 GSM of another paper type.
Knowing the available options will help you to nail down the best paper for your project.
