Exclusively for the Trade

In an effort to help eliminate the "Paper Weight" confusion problem,
we have compiled the comprehensive table listed below.
Now you can compare various types of paper and their "Equivalent Weights."

While every attempt has been made to insure the accuracy of the information provided on this web page, no guarantee can be offered or implied. Micro Format, Inc. has compiled this information from a number of sources and cannot be held liable for errors and/or omissions.

The Values in the table below are intended to serve as a guide only.
They should not be used as specifications because there are variances
within the same basis weight due to other characteristics of the papers.
Similar weight papers may vary between different paper manufacturers.
