    Here's a paper game for you - take 16 sheets of A4 and weigh it. It will give you the gsm rating of the paper stock (because 16 sheets is the equivalent of 1 metre). Impress your friends when you sagely pronounce their stock is 80gsm or 100gsm.

    Yes, I have worked for a printing company in the past, please don't judge me - working out the weight of client-supplied paper was about as exciting as it got.

    Some days we would just take 8 sheets, weigh it, and double the weight to get the result - less accurate but we were risk-takers then and enjoyed the odd maverick moment.

      I remember one of the companies I used to work for normally bought 80gsm paper, but tried economising by ordering a batch of 50gsm paper, which had a habit of jamming up in the printers & photocopiers!
