Rated 3 out of 5�by SteveM Lovely design but not 60 weight
At the time I ordered this item, and as I write, The Office Depot description says "Heavy 60-lb paper feels thick and impressive." That's why I bought it, because certificates that come in packs of 100 for under $10 usually are thin paper. However, it is nothing like 60-lb paper, at least by the standard way copy paper is measured. Standard copy paper is 20-lb, meaning 2000 sheets of size 8.5" x 11" weighs exactly 20 lbs. On this basis, using my postal scale, I would say that this paper is 22lb, and it definitely is thin, not thick. 60-lb would be card stock weight, which is what I was hoping for. I am happy to use this paper despite being misled, but Office Depot should fix its description (the package itself does not claim that the product is 60-lb, so I don't know where Office Depot got its misinformation). Next time I will probably go back to Gartner 100 packs, such as item #1525492, which doesn't have such fine-grained border printing, but is about 24lb weight and typically sells for several dollars less. When I do want heavy weight certificates, looks like I will have to buy them in packs of 12, 15 or 25, at a considerably higher price per sheet. (But warning: some of those packs also are thin paper; you are paying for the pseudo gold leaf.)

Rated 5 out of 5�by scott46 Excellent value and quality
We use these for those who complete our literacy tutor training and the combination of blue border with golden rays watermark make it special for a certificate.
