This depends on the product, but we believe in only using the highest quality paper stock for purpose and for value. Our premium business cards are 400gsm, Letterhead / Compliment Slip / Printing - 90 or 120gsm, A4/A5/A6 Notepads - 80gsm, Flyer Print - 150gsm or 300 gsm, A3 Posters -170 gsm.
GSM is short for 'Grams per Square Meter'. The higher the GSM number, the heavier (and thicker) the paper. At BrunelOne.com, we supply the most suitable GSM paper for each product purpose.
The type of paper used for difference purposes is expressed in weight. In the countries following the European system, it is grammes per square metre (gsm or g/m2 or simply g) and in the US system it is Pound (lb).
The paper used for writing/printing (letterheads and such stationery) is generally between 60 to 120 gsm (20 to 70 lb) and is called the paper or text stock. Anything heavier than this is considered the card stock, i.e. the paper used for business cards, postcards, greeting cards, etc.
Coated papers are available in two finishes – glossy (shiny and smooth) and Matt (flat and lusterless). Coated glossy papers reflect the light evenly so they are suitable for almost all types of printing jobs. Glossy papers have a good ink holdout, which is important for creating sharp, bright images.
