The paper stock you choose will depend on the products you’re ordering, how long you need them to last in good condition and the impact you want them to have on first impression. The two areas to look at are paper weight, and paper type.

Paper weight is measured in grams per square meter (gsm). As a guide:

80-100gsm Standard office photocopier/printer paper
120gsm Good quality letterheads
115-130gsm Cheaper flyers, commonly used for letterbox drops and high volume promotional material. Stock with a weight less than 130gsm will “show through” print to the other side
150-200gsm Good quality flyers and brochures, no show-through
200-250gsm High quality stock for flyers, posters, marketing cards, booklets and brochures. We don’t recommend folding stocks over 250gsm
300gsm+ Ideal for business cards, greeting cards, tent calendars, packaging etc. Stocks over 300gsm will need to be scored before folding
