Hello JanJan.  Iused to use 24 pound and I kept having the singing group tell me the pages curled and they tore out easy.  I have been using 32 pound HP paper and I just love it.  To me it is easy to see, it doesn't curl or tear out of a binder easily.  I hope this helps.  Be well and have a great day.  Billsmilewinkgrin

I just tried some Xerox Commercial 4200 Ringtuff. It comes 3 hole punched and has a tough mylar strip down the punched edge to keep it from tearing out. It's 20 pound and 92 brightness. It is working well in our choir music books. I had to order it online from Office Depot because the local store didn't stock it. I saw a large commercially printed leader's edition songbook that used this and thought I would try it. It is more expensive, but I don't use huge quantities because I only print the final version on it.

I have been using 67 pound Bristol Vellum (if I recall correctly) from Kelly paper. A little more heavy and a nice look and feel. Has a slight tan tint to it.

I think it depends on what sort of work you are doing. Symphony orchestras, chamber music groups, soloists, etc. seem to prefer a heavier paper --- such as David uses. But for the sort of work I do, big-band and combo swing and jazz, my customers prefer a lighter weight. They are often schlepping around a "book" of several hundred arrangements and weight becomes a factor.

I use HammerMill Color Copy Paper in 8 1/5x11 and 11x17. It is 28 lb, 98 brightness, acid free, has a surface that takes ink nicely (both ink jet and laser), and folds/creases without bunching up.

For printing parts and working scores, I use a good-quality, 100GSM bright white A4 paper. This is thick enough not to warp in my inkjet printer, stiff enough to stay open on a music stand, tough enough for rapid page turns and durable enough for repeated pencil marking/erasing. Bright white is the best colour when working in theatre pits with 15w music stand lights.

"GSM" means "grams per square metre": I have no idea how this relates to "pounds": pounds per what?

I don't know what the actual conversion is, but the label on my 28 lb paper indicates it is 105gsm. It also notes that 98US brightness equals 112+EURO brightness.

Thanks, Dick: at least that gives me a crude rule-of-thumb: gsm = lb * 4 ...

... but if anyone can tell me pounds per what, I'd be interested to know!

Woo-hoo! Thanks, Gareth, now I've seen it all!! Thank heavens for metric paper sizes and "weights"! :-)

And there are those around who think that using crotchets and quavers rather than fractions is obfuscating!

Tee Hee! Actually, Dick, I originally included the suffix, "(Sorry, Dick, in another thread)", but then decided to edit that out.

Still, worth a try, wasn't it? :-)

Since most of the sheet music I buy for classical guitar is larger than 8.5 x 11, I went with Concert which is 9 x 12. I like the larger size. I had to special order it, however.
