One ounce equals around six sheets of 20-pound paper combined. Six sheets of paper weigh 96/100 of an ounce, or about 16/100 of an ounce per sheet.
When figuring out postage, it’s crucial to account for the envelope’s weight because a typical postage stamp covers the mailing of 1 ounce. As may be observed if the envelope is broken apart at the glued seams and spread open, one ordinary envelope is roughly comparable to one sheet of paper. Five pages of 20-pound paper can be sent for the price of one stamp inside a regular white envelope. The quantity of sheets that add up to 1 ounce varies depending on whether one is using heavier or lighter paper.
