I am printing with the Epson 1430 and the specs are as follows .003 to .004 inch or .08 to .1 1mm thickness. Weight 17lb to 24lb or 64 g/m to 90 g/m

So i had an older box of Red River Premium Polar Satin at 66lb. Prints beautifully.

I do not understand...can someone please educate me or redirect to a learning site?
What is the max weight I can use....etc.

Deb, not sure if this may be helpful for you. It doesn't do much for me. However, I believe the issue that is confusing is that some paper Mfgr's or suppliers list paper thickness differently (such as Pounds, g/m, gsm ?, etc).
However, I believe it may help with conversions from one definition to another.
