Hey there everyone,
I am a new member here and I want some expert opinion on printing paper weights.
So I am working remotely with this company in Mexico and they want to print brochures for an upcoming conference. I don’t have experience with paper weights and all so I thought I’d seek out some advice from the pros. As far as the research I have done online, I have found that 170gsm is the best weight for bi-fold double sided brochures. However, the printing company in Mexico from where we get our prints, says that they only have 90, 130, 270 and 300 grams. 300 and 270 are cardboards so let’s leave them out. 90 seems pretty low so we are only left with 130 grams couche paper. The printing company says that 130 grams couche is the best one for our purpose.
I am super confused. Is 130 grams couche a good quality paper? We don’t want the flyers to look cheap.
Your help will be highly appreciated. If you have already used this type of paper and can confirm it’s quality, that’ll be awesome.
Thanks & Regards
