Selecting paper thickness

Follow

We offer a variety of stocks that range from 10PT to 62PT for card stock and 70LB to 100LB for text or thinner stocks. The higher the number, the thicker the paper.

Standard business cards and postcards/flyers/rack cards are commonly printed on 14PT or 16PT stock; and brochures on 100lb. Regular white bond office paper is approximately 80LB.

Our Mega Thick cards are 24PT, however we also offer 40pt thick stock that is only available with Letterpress output. If you are interested in a specific paper but require a thicker option, we can create 2-ply cards from almost any of our stocks through a custom print request.

Note that the paper thickness you select will determine the coatings available for that paper. If you are unsure of what stock/thickness to go with, feel free to visit one of our offices to pick up a sample or get assistance from a representative. You can also place a sample pack request on our website to have samples including a variety of stock thicknesses mailed to you.
