For the frame there is the option FrameStyle.

If you look at the Help for Ticks and GridLines you will see that there are
methods for specifying the style of the Lines. However you then have to
specify all of the ticks and grid lines.

The problem:

The default thickness of framelines, gridlines and tickmarks in Plot []
is 0.25pt.  This is too thin for typical figure reductions in journals
& books, and
may disappear from the printed version.

The question:

I want to set  the thickness of frameline, gridlines and ticks to 2,
1.25 and 1 pt, respectively.  These are good values for typical paper
figures.  How do I do

(At the moment I do it with Illustrator postprocessing)

Note: the online help is not much help. There a passing mention on
Gridlines thickness with PlotStyle, but no examples.  What would be
nice is to
reset the defaults once and for all.

Thanks for any help.
