thanks for the hands on comparison. i think i will try gina k. i am sure i have spent money on sillier things!
i know the weights dont always seem accurate, but when you are buying online, what else can you go by? my local office supply place has samples of all the papers out so you can compare, but as one would expect its very office use type papers, good for plain white, but not much else.
ah well, i cant take it with me.
