Paper Thickness (Weight)

In the U.S., paper thickness is measured based on the weight of 500 sheets in its uncut form (17"x22"). "Bond" refers to the kind of paper generally used for writing or printing. Standard paper tends to be 20lb bond. Stationery paper tends to be a little heavier, i.e. 24lb bond. For the individual versions of the DIY Strategy / Culture toolkits, we use 32lb bond, which is a heavier card stock.
