Hi all,

What is generally the heaviest paper stock that you have been successful with for making your own stamp albums?


Thank you!

Edit:

From reading...

Looks like 65 pound might work.

I think it may depend on the paper path of the printer.

Some printers have a straight path through, but most of the ones I've had and have seen have a turn in the paper path.

The straight path can typically take a heavier paper stock than the ones that have a turn.

I have used up to 64# in my epson (which was later upgraded to a laser printer).

I agree, every printer has its own specs and this needs to be understood before stuffing a new paper into a printer.

In many parts of the world paper thickness is measured with gsm (grams per square inch or g/m2). In the US the thickness is measured in 'weight' including several different methods like bond weight, text weight, cover weight, index weight. It is pretty confusing. Here is a helpful chart

All the printers I have owned could handle 65/67 LB cover. It is one of the most popular paper stocks so easy to purchase.

I use Domtar 28/70 for my pages. It is a balance of stiffness and thickness. The thicker the stock you get fewer pages per album and costs more per page.

Hi all,

Thanks for your input.

I've already started this project.

Shot out to the store and bought 65 lb paper. Seems to be working great!


Thanks!

I'm finding this weight of paper to be a very good "happy medium" for printing these pages.
