Grades and Standards

Byron Weston’s permanent record papers are available in four grades and two finishes, Linen Ledger and Xerographic. Xerographic is a slightly brighter white and has a smoother surface to enhance the document’s appearance when it is printed on a modern device such as a laser or ink jet printer or photocopier. Our papers are available in four thicknesses or “weights”. These weights are expressed as “24 pound” or “Sub 24”. For the sake of comparison, most common photocopier paper is Sub 20. Byron Weston permanent record papers are available in Sub’s 24, 28, 32, and 36.
