80GSM is standard for printer paper. 300GSM was the heaviest weight we worked in at the studio i used to work at, that was pretty thick card. i would say a dvd insert would be no more than 150GSM. probably less. its the finish that you have on the paper rather than the weight that will get you the stiffness i think. i could be wrong though.
