What does paper weight mean?
When it comes to evaluating printing paper quality, one of the most common measures is grams per square meter (GSM).
GSM measures how much a specific type of paper weighs when cut into a one-square-meter sample, roughly 3.3 by 3.3 feet.
For reference, a newspaper usually weighs about 45 GSM, while standard printer paper is typically around 90 GSM.
We take pride in our commitment to exceptional craftsmanship, starting with our choice of premium raw materials. That's why we use 190 GSM paper, which is not only sustainably sourced but also impressively thick and substantial to the touch.
