Material Thickness

How Thick is this Material?

It is important for you to understand the thickness of materials in order for them to print properly in most laser and inkjet printers. While the cover stock we use is rather thick, it can still be used through these types of printers. We have found that our 260 gsm thick stock runs best through straight path printers. If you are interested in one of our boxes or envelopes but are not sure if you can print on the properly, please request a sample. Just go to our Contact Us page, fill in the request and we will be happy to mail you a free sample sheet.
