In wide format printing there is a range of media sold to meet specific end uses. Because of the variety of end uses the media is manufactured utilizing a wide variety of substrates. This includes vinyl, PVC, corrugated plastic, foam products, aluminum composites and paper. Each substrate is identified by caliper or weight, and these measurements can vary. This often creates confusion when trying to compare one product to another. We have listed below a chart comparing these measurements. Please note this is for comparison of thickness only. Other features, such as stiffness and durability, will vary greatly from one product to another regardless of the thickness. To use this chart, determine the method for measuring the media you are using, whether it is MM, inches or caliper. Go to that column to find the exact match, and then look at other columns for approximate comparison. Styrene is measured by caliper, PVC in MM, foamboard by fraction of inch and paperboard by Pt. The measurements in bold reflect standard media measurements. Others are for reference only.
