Pressboard Paper Explanation:
Pressboard paper stock is the kind of paper that these folders are made out of and is available in an array of colors and styles. FiberMark is one of the premier manufacturers of pressboard paper. Basically they take recycled pulp board and press it together (multi-ply construction) to form pressboard paper. You can tell a folder is made out of pressboard when it kind of resembles thick cardboard. A lesser weight folder is usually made out of Manila or Kraft paper.
Type and Point of Pressboard Paper:
Pressboard paper uses two measurements to help determine the durability and thickness of the paper. The first measurement is the Type of paper. The highest paper quality has the lowest “Type” number. Paper quality is determined by the the ingrediaents used for the paper along with how the paper is manufactured. The second measurement is the weight which is called “point”. The thickest paper measures the highest “point”. (Paper you use in a copier, printer, etc. is measured in “pound”.)
-Pressboard manufactured to be used for folders is available in Type III, Type II, or Type I.
