I'm just wondering if there is a standard (in the uk) definition of paper thickness? So if I wanted to get some card to print various components on I could walk into a shop and ask for some X weight paper and know it was good for printing cards on or heavier to print chits or boards onto. also does anyone have example, say the Agricola cards are X and the player boards are XX.

Typical card stock is 110 g/m^2.

I think that's about the max that will guaranteed make it through your printer properly, and I know you don't really find higher than that at the local business supply store around here. Higher densities can probably be found though, although you may be taking a chance with whether they work or not in your printer.

I thought this was a joke also. Something along the lines of how to brick your iPhone.
