When I photocopy my dividers to bind into my spiral rulebooks at FedEx-Kinkos, I ask for "32 weight cardstock" and whatever they hand me seems pretty close -- a little more glossy than MMP-printed scenarios but not as glossy as Schwerpunkt or FrF scenarios. HTH.above says it all.
Also I know everything in the world is moving to digital but has anyone put all their scenarios on card stock?
Right, I think i got my wires crossed. 32lb is as you described -- a little thicker than regular paper but good for copying RB paper. 80lb is, as you mention, the correct card-stock weight.I believe that cardstock is 80lb weight. After scanning, I printed the rulebook out on 32lb matte paper (picked up at Kinko's). It's pretty close to actual rulebook paper.
Or you could change all the weird, North American-sized stuff to international standards used in the rest of the world.I also change all the weird euro sized LFT stuff to normal US size card stock and put the originals away.
I use the color laser printer I have at work (perk of being the plant manager) and do not have any issues. But, it is an office sized unit not a home unit.
The DIN is deafening, another plot to take over the world, one industry standard at a time.A word from the "rest of the world"...
I have recently been using DIN-A-4 of 160g/m².
This seems to be somewhat lighter than 65lb which has been mentioned above, while the stuff 'officially' used seems to be 80lb.
The difference of the 'official' 80lb paper to DIN-A-4 of 160g/m² is noticable but the latter appears thick enough to me. I have not encountered any difficulties with standard printers with regard to smearing or anything.
Many color laser printers will print card stock. I have an older Dell 3110cn and in the multipurpose tray it will handle up to 80lb cardstock. I have had this for over a decade and it was not particularly expensive when I bought it. Now one can buy them for much much less. A quick look around the net and you can find quite a few that are not expensive that provide good resultsOr you could change all the weird, North American-sized stuff to international standards used in the rest of the world.
On a more serious note, have you had trouble printing 80lb paper using a colour laser printer? Past experience usually resulted in smeared ink. It appears that many printers do not support heavy card stock, and where they do, they require manual feeding.
