Hi,

I have to send a document to the States and the requirements are:

White paper 20lb
Covers 80lb

I cannot find what would be the closest weight according to european standards (paper weight is indicated in grammes/m2)
I would really appreciate if anybody could give me a hint...

Thanks in advance
Christine

Search in Google for "Xerox" "Facts about paper" or goto
http://www.stanford.edu/dept/itss/css/operations/Xerox-print.pdf and read
the section on "Weight" and Appendix C.

It is not easy to give a short answer, because in the USA the weight depends
upon a standard size for that particular paper.

However, if you buy Xerox paper of size USLetter, I rather suspect that it
will be specified in Imperial units.

Anyway, a conversion table in the document gives 20lb as 75gsm & 80 as 216.

after.
