*Note that the number of sheets is not the same as the number of pages. For example, a 6pp A4 leaflet would use the equivalent of 3 sheets of A4 - one 'page' per side.

Paper substances in the table above can be combined to give further weights; for example, 1 sheet of 150gsm a4 would be 9.37 grams (50gsm A4 + 100gsm A4).

These tables are intended as a guide to aid rapid assessment of possible mailing costs.
