Default What is the weight of Stampin Up Cardstock?

Can someone please tell me what the weight is of the Stampin Up cardstock? (Colors) I tried to put a sheet of colored SU CS into my printer and it jams all the time. When I put a piece of GP Image Plus which has a weight of 110lbs it goes through my printer with no problems. I'm assuming SU is heavier then 110lbs, but not sure how much. Can someone let me know. Thanks!

The reason its jamming your printer is probably because its stiffer than the GP cardstock. SU uses a lot (A LOT) of ink to get the colour of their cardstock and that makes the cardstock very stiff as compared to white cardstock. Also, the cardstock fibres are probably tighter than the GP paper. You probably wouldn't have a problem with Whisper white because its pretty flimsy compared to their regular cardstock or the GP also.

Wow, that has answered my often wondered but never asked question of why the coloured cardstock always seems heavier than the white even though they are both 80 lb. It's not the weight, it's the stiffness!

Default Question on stampin up paper

I love their cardstock, patterned paper all their colors. Does anyone know if the patterned paper is still lightweight or have they made it heavier like close to my heart did?

I remember reading somewhere (here I think) that SU patterned paper is 65lb so its a nice weight.
