Printing covers
« on: November 27, 2017, 03:46:37 AM »
Hello,
Does anyone know what weight/ type of cardstock was used in making the covers for the books.  I'm thinking books like Character Law or Arms Law during the '90s.

I have the .PDFs of the RMFRP from DrivethruRPG.  I'm interested in printing some of those books out.  Any advice/ recommendations would be appreciated.

Whenever I have done this, I always used the 65lb cardstock paper at minimum.  Usually I used 110lb cardstock paper.  And I always used white or bright white (duh).

Here is a link for a search at Staples.com: https://www.staples.com/cardstock+paper/directory_cardstock%2520paper
