Linda was correct when she wrote, "300# is the basis weight for a ream
of 22" x 30" watercolor paper."

Most people wouldn't buy that much. You purchase sheets of the type
that fits your needs, not a whole 300# of it. Wow, wonder how much that

Of course; that's why a ream of it would weigh 400 lbs. Take a look at
any paper, including drawing and bond papers; they list their basis
weights also. Copy paper usually weighs 20# or 24#. I like the 24# for
paper folding projects. I like 60# drawing paper because it holds up to
erasure, and can be painted on. Hope this helps...
