Paper Weights and Thicknesses Explained

In Europe, paper is measured in GSM. This stands for ‘grams per square meter’ and means exactly that - how many grams a single sheet of paper measuring 1m x 1m weighs. 
Common weight in cut sheets - 
80gsm - Standard home printer or photo copier paper  
120gsm - Letterheads 
130 or 150gsm are generally used for leaflets or flyers. 
Anything weighing more than 170gsm is generally classified as board. 
250gsm is the weight of a standard postcard. 
350gsm is a standard business card or a thicker postcard weight. (Our standard business cards are 450gsm with the option of adding matt or gloss lamination).
