The standard sheet size varies by grade. For example, text weight papers have a standard size of 25 x 38 (950 sq. inches).
Basic Size The standard sheet size from which the basis weight of a given grade is determined. (See tables.)
Point The thickness of a sheet of paper, referenced in a point value. Typically, 3 decimal places are used to indicate thickness in percentage of an inch. For example, .010 is also referenced as 10 point or 10 pt.
