    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Lorraine asks: "What sort of paper is best for making envelopes?"
    A: It looks like most quality envelopes are made from papers with a weight of 75-120 gsm. HERE is a chart that shows a comparison of different weight scales with the gsm (grams per square meter) standards. Printer papers or scrapbook papers are good options!
