Creep Calculator and Paper Weight Conversions

By October 21, 2006

Follow me on:

In an earlier discussion about Calculating Creep Compensation, reader Francis O. posts a link to a PrintGraphics, an Australian company. On their site they have a "Magazine Calculator" that lets you input number of pages, page dimensions, and paper weight and it will calculate creep for you. Although this calculator has some limitations (max pages 132, creep based on their "house" stocks) it can still simplify basic creep calculations.

In the PrintGraphics calculator you'll need to use millimeters (mm) for page size and grammage (grams/square meter - gsm) for weight. If you are more accustomed to inches and pounds, these comparison charts and tools can help you convert the numbers and understand the output of the calculator. Use them for all kinds of paper-related computations:

What other online calculators and charts do you use for paper and other types of conversions?
