Easy to Use Paper Weight Conversion Tool

January 10, 2011

The weight of a certain type of paper is presented differently depending on the location where the paper is being produced and sold. In North America, each specific type of paper is measured in pounds per 500 standard-sized sheets, and different types of paper have different standard sheet sizes. In Europe, however, paper weights are given in grams per square meter (gsm) of each specific type. To make good comparisons, a paper weight conversion chart or automatic converter is necessary to convert pounds to gsm.

Our easy to use paper weight conversion tool (located on the Resources page) allows you to convert from Standard American English Pounds (lbs) to Metric Grams/Square Meter (gsm).

To use the tool, simply choose the desired conversion; “lbs to gsm” or “gsm to lbs”, enter a weight, then click the convert button. The results for text, cover, index, vellum, and tag weights will be returned.
