What paper is the best to use for Copics?

About a year ago I went to a lss and bought some paper. It was pretty costly and the drive was over a hour. I have heard some papers bleed through and others don't. So any help will be much appreciated..

Thanks in advance, again!
You'll get lots of opinions on the paper, too. And you're not a pain in the behind. We who love our Copics also love talking about them and anything related!

Copic themselves recommends X-Press-It blending card. I like it fine. You can get it at a good price through Oozak.com (lots of satisfied cusotmers around SCS). Other choices: Neenah Classic Crest Colar White, which I like OK, except that I've had trouble with certain colors, especially reds, bleeding over the outline. I also like Gina K pure luxury white. That one comes in 2 weights. Most of the papers/cardstocks you'll use will bleed through to the back of the sheet, so you'll need to layer. The one exception I've found is that the Gina K heavyweight cardstock is thick enough so that it doesn't bleed through.

I know others have tried some other papers, and I'm sure they'll chime in.
