What does GSM mean?

GSM is an acronym that stands for ‘Grams per Square Meter’.  GSM tells you the density and thickness of paper used in printing works.  See the metrics used in paper industry (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammage).

As an online seller, we know that buying the products without touching and feeling can be hesitating task.  Therefore, we have come up with the numbers as to what different GSM numbers mean and what we use.

35gsm to 55gsm: This is very thin paper.  Mostly, newspapers are printed on this thickness paper sheet.

90gsm to 100gsm: This is generally the thickness of printer paper.

120gsm to 140gsm: Most posters are made with this thickness range and is sturdy enough to withstand little wear and tear. 

220gsm to 250gsm: This range covers our envelopes that can be felt as solid.  These can't be teared down easily and if you bend the envelopes, it will not tear but only a wrinkle will appear.
