Looking at the uline store, what roll should I get? Looking for what Mondo ships in.

I have 24x36 prints... not a lot so one roll will do. What about 30" width and 60lb?

60lb weight is nice and strong. 30" width will cover almost every silkscreen.....

The paint department at Lowes is where you want to go.

I bought a roll of this like 2 years ago and still have a ton. 50# weight, 720 feet, 30" long so it fits the standard 24x36 tubes perfectly, free shipping with prime. Was $40 when I got it, but now it's $45.

Buy the size that will fill the length of your tube. If the kraft is too short, it will bounce back and forth inside of the tube and crush both ends. IMHO tube-length kraft is the most important choice.
