I just bought a 260 GSM photo paper (it is used to get photographs printed).
But I was really surprised to find out that it feels thinner as compared to my 250 GSM art papers. I expected that it would feel at least similar to my art paper's thickness, but it feels thin.
Both are A4 papers. If I try to hold the art paper horizontally (parallel to ground) from one side in one hand, it doesn't bend easily due to gravity. It bends but it feels thick.
But I tried same for this photo paper and it bent easily. It also visually looks tiny bit thin as compared to the art paper.
So I'm really curious if I actually got a 260 GSM photo paper or I got a wrong (e.g. less GSM) paper.
Or this difference can be because art and photo papers are for different things? So the GSM varies? Or GSM unit is constant irrespective of paper?
