Size Reference

Abbreviations 'gsm' and 'mic' used throughout the catalogue denote the weight of the paper or card, 'mic' is short for micron, 1000 microns = 1mm.

Paper mills generally only guarantee card that is up to 160gsm in weight to work on an inkjet printer, in practice (apart from most iridescents, gloss and pearlescent cards) many actually print quite well. We recommend trying them first to make sure before buying bulk.
