I use 120 gsm and have found its thickness adequate for the document to look professionally produced. 80 gsm feels "insubstantial" when you hold it in hand. Don't buy recycled paper no matter how green you are. Presentation is just as important.
Along the same line, buy yourself a good laser printer.
What paper weight should we use?
I'm worried that I might be over-compensating after my first few certified translations were done on < 80 gsm paper and I've now purchased 160 gsm online.
Ordering online, I didn't get to preview before buying and now it's arrived and feeling it, it's on the edge of being considered thin card rather than paper!
I don't know whether I should use it.
Is there a set standard for paper weight that we should follow, should I have just stopped at 120 gsm?
