Default What's the heaviest cardstock?

I've noticed people post about different cardstocks being 65#, 80# 100# etc. Can you explain to me which one is the thickest, most heavy duty (the lower the number or the higher the number)? I'm looking for something that is really heavy duty & sturdy. I'm going to be using it as dividers in my photo boxes to store my photos. Right now, I just have index cards that are really flimsy and I'd like something with more stability. So it doesn't have to be a top quality, name brand just something heavy duty. I would need them in 5x7 size.

Any ideas where to find something like this on the cheaper side? I need about 200+.

Michaels 110lb Recollections is pretty heavy. I use it for all my card bases now. 250 Sheets sells for $14.99 but you can use a coupon when it isn't on sale. I believe it is acid free but you may want to check.

so the higher the number, the sturdier? Will the 110lb be heavy enough to use as a divider?

yep, the higher the number the sturdier. Can't answer your second question, but I'd say index cards are closer to the 60 - 80# range. I wonder what the weight for file folders is. Seems like a bit above the 110#, but not sure.

This is chart is just FYI... Convert GSM to Pounds | Coastal Printing

You could look at getting some mat board and cutting it down to size. Mat board is very sturdy. These are what I use for dividers, they can be cut down as well.

Mary, thanks for sharing that Coastal Printing chart. It is helpful when comparing cover weight to index weight.

YES - higher number, heavier weight - and a 110# card stock is lighter weight than a 110# cover stock.

goodness! I'm appreciating you started this thread. So much to learn. (a friend recently got me interested in knitting, and I thought the whole yarn thickness/amount per skein/needle size thing was confusing! lol!)

I think there's only 150 sheets in recollections #110 but I could be wrong. I lost the label on mine so I can't check. Anyone else know?

Here's a chart to help make it easier...




As you can see, 110 pound index (what index cards used to be made of) is the same thickness as 74 pound cover. And so on.

Thank you Diane, I was hoping you'd share here!

I tend anymore to look at the gsm rather than the pound weight, since that's a consistent scale in both card and cover weights.

Where does card stock fit in the charts?

(So glad I started my card making life with SU! back in the day when everything was just ... card stock. pretty card stock with matchy matchy ribbon and ink ... a simpler time, lol!)

holy cow! didn't know there was so much to know about card stock weight. I just wish all card stock would at least label the packaging as to whether it is 65 lb, 80 lb, or 110 lb. Some of Joann's cardstock doesn't seem to be even 65 lb. weight - it is really flimsy. I appreciate Hobby Lobby carrying heavy weight (80 lb cardstock) in many colors now.

The same. It means "grams per square meter".

Fiona, where would SU! regular CS fit into the chart (like the regular Whisper White)?
Does anyone know where Gina K's base weight CS would fit? Just trying to orient myself. Thanks in advance.

I'm going to be in Greendale on Fri, planning to stop in at Gina K's place. (Going to be a fun day. There's a fabulous yarn shop a couple doors down, too.) If no one has chimed in on the charts and how they translate to CS, if I see her, I'll see if Gina can help out.

Thanks Fionna-great chart that I snapped up and saved!

I have always found paper to be confusing and part of that is because it isnt just weight-it's type.


Here is a tuturial from OWH (now no more) that talks about paper types as well as weights. Hope this helps

I don't think there's one category for card stock. I'm assuming once a paper is greater than ~145gms it is considered a card stock. But, I'm just guessing!!

SU is 80# cover weight (216gms) for regular colors. I think white/vanilla is 80# cover also but feels less; I think this is because of the coating.

GinaK is 100#cover weight (271gms) for regular colors. The website states the weight of specialty materials.

Adding a question! I purchased the new SU heavy whisper white cardstock for card bases. It stands up more than the regular whisper white. Does anyone know where that falls in weight?

I've used this cardstock from Sam's Club for years. It is great for card bases, and I also use it for stamping images and coloring them. They carry it in my local Sam's, and you can also order online. I think it's a great bargain - 250 sheets of 110# for only $7.88!

I typed in 110# card stock and found it. I think I buy something similar at Walmart for $5.43 but I can't remember if mine is 250 sheets or 150.

If you order from Cutcardstock.com, they will cut up to 100 sheets for you to the size you want them (5x7) for a $7.00 fee. For example, if you got this 130lb cover weight brown bag cover stock, 4 pkgs of 25 sheets (at the bulk discount rate of $6.53 per pkg), you could get all 200 5x7's already cut for you for ~$33 plus shipping.

I'm not sure how much you value your time to cut it all, so just wanted you to know that there were places that could do all that cutting for you.

Sorry, Kathy. I just clicked the link again, and it worked okay for me. (Computers??)


I think the card stock they sell at Walmart is made by Georgia Pacific, and is similar to the Sam's, but the Image Plus seems to be a better quality. At least, in my opinion. It has a really nice smooth finish and is good to color with markers, which I do a lot.

I think it had to do with it being your sams club and not my local one. Maybe...

I get a whole ream of cardstock cut in half at a university print shop for 80cents. Check your local print shop or Staples, Office Depot,etc.

I bought 110# card stock at Walmart and found out it is NOT 110# !!! Very flimsy - more like 80#. I like the Recollections 110# card stock at Michaels (with a coupon of course!).
