Lightest I would go is 110lb.TwitchFMX8811 said:Ok for my last armor I used poster board. I had to cut templates and glue to the poster board then I had to cut them out again. So this time im using card stock. My question is what is the lightest card stock anyones used. The thickest I could find was 90.
That depends on what your printer can handle, check the specs on the printer manual to find the max weight your printer can handle then get that stock. Bad news to get 100 or 110 stock then find out your printer can't deal with it.ketchup said:while we're on this topic....which weight is mostly recommended???

It appears some people still fail to understand what I have been saying so I'll say it again in letters large enough for anyone to seeSpartan-K22 said:For all the n00bs and non-n00bs out there, go for
110lbs. cardstock. its tought, and is a good base for the pepakura helmet.
By the way, im making some armor (along with the helmet)
and need some ideas for what to paint it (what colors?!?!?)
something that will look cool!
What?! I bought a 98lbs A4 size set of 30 sheets inside and it costs 7.50! I'm in singapore btw but still i don't think the difference should be THAT much! Am i buying the correct type? It says "Daler Rowney-Fine Grain-Cartridge" It looks like its for artists. Is this the type that you all buy?AoBfrost said:The packet itself will say
Cardstock weight 90lb
Cardstock weight 65lb
Cardstock weight 110lb
in big bold lettering
if you paid 5 dollars, thats a rip off, I paid 8 dollars at staples and got 250 sheets.
Metric... Does it say the paper weight in grams per square metre? If so it should be 160-200 gsm, preferably on the higher end of that range.TwitchFMX8811 said:Will the cardstock I just bought do the trick? The metric weight is 28.76. Dont know what the standard weight is. Also I paid $12 for 250 sheets.
