How Thick is 13-Point Stock?

There's a lot about print and packaging that most people may not know or understand, and that's okay. We try to make things as clear as possible and when you do get confused, all you have to do is ask. You may have also noticed that handy little chat button in the bottom right corner of the website, feel free to use it whenever you have a question!

One customer asked:

How thick is the 13pt card stock?

I’m curious about the thickness of the dividers you carry and am trying to compare what the equivalent may be.

Is 13-point the same as .013? How would 13-point compare to .022 thickness?


 Great question!

"Point" is shorthand for the caliper measurement in thousandths of an inch. Therefore 13pt = 0.013 inches and 22pt = 0.022 inches.

Our house stocks are 13pt, 16pt and 20pt, with occasional availability of 18pt, 35pt and 91pt and others on special order.
If your custom packaging project contemplates using our brown kraft chipboard, we'll make sure you receive samples with the appropriate thickness so you understand what you're getting.

Using Live Paint groups can be an incredibly expressive and intuitive way to create your artwork, but because intersecting elements act as if they are on the same flat surface your final art will not be ready for screen printing without a few quick tweaks.

Live Paint in Illustrator (Object => Live Paint => Make) is an alternate mode of creating and editing objects which some people find more accessible because it disguises the underlying vectors being generated. With Live Paint, intersecting path form regions that can be converted to groups and edited and filled in a way that mimics natural media paintings or image editing programs... almost like filling in a pencil sketch with watercolors.
