We use #36 Byron Weston Archival Linen Xerographic Paper which goes through printers with ease, and takes the color well for our zoogeographic codes. We support the headers with a pin on each side: .

[log in to unmask]" type="cite">Hi all,
The Virginia Tech Insect Collection is looking at replacing the header cards for its pinned specimens. The standard 65 lb cardstock that we use for our pinned labels feels a bit flimsy when inserted into a unit tray as a header card. I'd prefer to use something sturdier along the lines of 80 lb (about the weight of a business card) or 110 lb cardstock (more like an index card). Does anyone have a recommendation? Are there any issues we should take into consideration with cutting these weights or having them fray on the edges?
Thanks,-Tree DellingerCollections ManagerVirginia Tech Insect CollectionDepartment of Entomology, Virginia Tech
