    thick stiff paper

    For thick stiff sheets of paper we have a specific word, 'moghavva', in our native language. I found cardboard, card, and carton, but non of them is that I mean.

    Re: thick stiff paper

    In your photo, the single sheets are card and the boxes are made of cardboard.

    Re: thick stiff paper

    Most of those pictures look like card to me. You couldn't mean parchment, could you?

    Re: thick stiff paper

    The term for the thick paper that cards are made out of is card stock, which I think may be what you are referring to.
