I stumbled on this website while googling for information.* There's a lot here, and I've enjoyed looking things over.* I have a question, and it will no doubt reveal the level of my ignorance.* I searched several topics on this site, but did not find a comparable question (so apologies if I am asking something already answered).* I hope someone can help.* * ** *I went to my local Precision Camera store to look at photo papers.* The packages listed paper weight in grams, which is helpful in determining which papers are heavier.* The technical specs on my printer, however, state the printer can use photo paper "up to 130 lb index"...no mention of grams. *How do I translate the printer requirements into knowing which packages of paper will work without being too heavy/thick for my printer?* I dont' want to damage print heads or other parts. * ** ** *Thank you in advance.*
