At Cheever Specialty Paper & Film we are always looking for new ways to provide the best service to our customers. Our services include designing, sourcing and inventorying specialty paper, film and tape for the manufacturing and packaging industries, as well working with customers to solve problems that require a custom solution. The latest innovation we have developed to meet our customers’ needs is a dimensions and dollars conversion chart.
The Cheever dimensions and dollars conversion chart was developed to easily convert different sizes and weight of paper. This is important as basis weight, which describes the density of a specific sheet of paper according to how many pounds one ream weights at its basic size is only used in the United States. One ream of paper is typically about 500 sheets of paper. Other countries around the world measure this using the metric equivalent, which is grammage weight. Grammage weight is the weight of paper in terms if grams per square meter. It measures the same thing as basis weight, but does not consider paper density or basic size.
Another form of paper measurement is M Weight. This refers to weight of 1000 cut sheets of paper. M weight is useful for paper suppliers because it is always consistent with a specific paper size, which makes calculating shipping charges easier. Many times this information needs to be converted into different units of measurement like lbs., linear foot, linear yard, and square yardage among others. Once this conversion is made, it is also important to know how much it will cost per this unit of measurement to order.
Our conversion chart makes easy this process for you. With this chart no longer will you have to do all of the equations to find out the information you are looking for each time you are looking to order new products.
