What does the gram of paper represent? Is an A4 size 250g glossy cardboard 250g? In fact, the 250g of the 250g glossy cardboard means that the weight of the glossy paper per square meter is 250g.

l The weight of the paper product = the number of prints X the area of the printed product X the paper weight per square meter

For example, the calculation method for the weight of 1 sheet of 250g glossy powder paper in A4 size is: 1x (0.21 × 0.297) x 250, that is, the weight of 1 A4 glossy powder card is about 15.592 g.
