    Default Will 140# stock roll in a tube for shipping?

    I have a customer who would like for me to print on 140# stock and I'm afraid he'll be pissed it if won't roll in tubes when he ships them out. Will they roll up or am I just being a pansy about this?

    I've rolled 140# before. Was really happy when that poster sold out though so I could go back to rolling and packing 100#.

    Wider tube diameter makes it easier to roll 140#. 5" or 6" tube. Don't print on muscletone as it is designed for easy folding and and that weight is impossible to roll in a tube without damage.

    remember that weight (#) is not the same thing as thickness.
    Not all papers marked 140# are the same thickness, nor do they all roll as easily.
