The easiest way to distinguish the quality of paper is paper weight. Through the number of grams, you can exactly know the weight of every piece of paper. To avoid ink penetration, photo printing paper is obviously heavier than ordinary paper. Weight of ordinary photo printing paper is about 180g, and thickening of the photo printing paper is 230 in weight, and can even reach 260g. It is necessary to consult the printer’s instructions before purchasing. Some printers have requirements for paper thickness, for example, those in partial offices, generally require less than 200g for paper thickness.
