*Results are estimates only, as different mills may calculate M-Weight slightly differently.*
*Certain products can vary in basis weight and/or be calculated on the full width of the roll, including waste. Both of these variables can affect M-Weight calculations. Products especially prone to these deviations include SBS and recycled board. *

Equivalent Weight Tables
### Equivalent Weight Tables

These tables provide weight in pounds for a ream of a common grade of paper and provides its basis weight and metric equivalent in grams per square meter (GSM).

**bold**.

The numerical data in these tables are estimates only and are not guaranteed.

Ream | 500 sheets of paper of any given size. |
---|---|

Ream Weight | The weight of 500 sheets of the standard sheet size for the particular grade. (See tables.) |

M-Weight | The weight of 1,000 sheets (two reams) of paper. |

Basis Weight | The weight of a ream, measured in pounds. The Basis Weight (also known as Ream Weight) is the weight of 500 sheets of the standard sheet size for a particular grade. The standard sheet size varies by grade. For example, text weight papers have a standard size of 25 x 38 (950 sq. inches). |

Basic Size | The standard sheet size from which the basis weight of a given grade is determined. (See tables.) |

Point | The thickness of a sheet of paper, referenced in a point value. Typically, 3 decimal places are used to indicate thickness in percentage of an inch. For example, .010 is also referenced as 10 point or 10 pt. |
