1. What is the difference between paper and card?
Paper and card are both types of materials commonly used for writing, printing, and packaging. The main difference between the two lies in their thickness and weight. Paper is generally thinner and more flexible, while card is thicker and stiffer. The thickness of paper is typically measured in grams per square meter (gsm), with lighter weights ranging from 60gsm to 120gsm and heavier weights above 120gsm considered as card.
2. What are the common uses for paper and card?
Paper is commonly used for various purposes including writing, printing documents, creating flyers or brochures, and for arts and crafts. It can also be used for packaging lightweight items or as a protective layer for delicate objects. Card, on the other hand, is often used for making greeting cards, postcards, business cards, invitations, and other types of stationery. It is also used to create packaging boxes, folders, book covers, and other durable materials requiring extra strength and rigidity.
3. What factors should I consider when choosing paper or card for a project?
Firstly, determine the purpose of the project and the desired level of thickness and durability needed. Consider the printing technique you plan to use as certain techniques work better with specific types of materials. Additionally, consider the appearance and texture of the paper or card as it can impact the overall aesthetic of your project. Finally, keep in mind your budget and any environmental considerations, such as the availability of recycled or sustainable options.
