- What paper/card should I choose for printing flyers…?
Looking at getting some flyers printed – A5 size.
Got the design all done, and just looking into printing them.
It’s really to be posted through letterboxes etc etc
What is the recommended paper weight?
It seems 135gm paper is the most ‘popular’, and at about £65 for 5000 not too pricey.
300gm art board is another £100 on top (£165 for 5000) but would the thicker card simply be unnecessary? I’m sure business cards are 300gm, and that’s pretty thick…
What would STW do?

For throwaway flyers no heavier than 120gsm, 100 or 110 would be fine. A decent letterhead paper wouldn’t be more than around 120gsm, on something like Conqueror Wove, and that’s far too good for flyers.Posted 4 years ago
I’d say stick with 100gsm.
Stet: are these going to be glossy? If so, then yes 135gsm coated would be fine, a matt coated would be ok, too.
I’m having to think back twenty-plus years to remember this stuff, I used to do it all the time.
