Re: [BKARTS] Weight comparisons

One website I have used is Braden Printing <http://www.bradenprint.com/>.
They have an "Informative Articles" section which includes a bunch of PDF
files about various aspects of printing.  One of the PDF's is a chart on
different types of papers, their U.S. size, weight in lbs, and the ISO
(metric) equivalent.  There is another chart outlining all the ISO standard
sizes.  I don't know anything about this printing company except they have
these very useful charts.
