Heavy paper size isn't just about physical dimensions; it's also about weight. The term 'heavy' refers to its weight range which typically falls between 170-220 gsm (grams per square meter). This heavyweight quality contributes significantly to its sturdiness and longevity.

Interestingly, despite being part of an international standard series, Heavy paper size isn't as commonly used as some of its counterparts like A4 or A3. However, this doesn't diminish its value or versatility. From professional documents such as business cards and brochures to creative projects like scrapbooking or cardmaking - Heavy paper provides a reliable solution.

Whether you're seeking durability for professional use or versatility for creative endeavors - the Heavy paper size from the ISO A series offers an exceptional choice that combines both these attributes seamlessly.
