Note - to add to this article and the paper one :

I came here because there is a question in RD/S about manila paper. What is the common thickness of such paper ? They say in [1] :

Bulk or Caliper : The thickness of a single sheet of paper, expressed in points. A point equals 1/1000 inch.

Blanks : Heavyweight boards ranging from 15 to 48 points in thickness, both coated and uncoated. Primarily used for package printing, point-of-purchase displays, poster cards, etc.

To evaluate, Google sez "(15/1 000) inch = 0.381 millimeters" --DLL 18:05, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Archival and Acidic qualities[edit]

Should be included in this article when and if it's written.

My understanding is Manila was a cheaper fiber for making strong cardstock-like papers. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:41, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
