Cougar A-Size envelopes are offered in a variety of sizes along with two shades and two finishes. With such a vast arrangement to stock, we are not offering the 32/80 Text (118 gsm). We recommend using 28/70 (104 gsm) as this is offered in all sizes and is only slightly different. Cougar envelopes are and have been a popular product for years and offered great quality at reasonable prices.
If you were using 32/80 smooth finish, transitioning to 28/70 vellum finish has an average caliper difference that is minimal. Actually, when looking up the average caliper, these have the same results, 28/70 vellum average caliper 6.0 and 32/80 smooth average caliper 5.9 – This is only addressing the ‘bulk’ factor – but possibly that may have been your only concern. You can view all the Cougar Envelopes we offer with one simple click. Also, before switching grades, view our paper weight chart for Cougar Paper to best determine your project needs.
If you are considering a grade transition and your project requires smooth finish, yet thicker, we are suggesting Neenah Classic Crest Solar White or Natural. We do offer all A-Sizes with 32/80 smooth finish.
