Default Cardstock Question

I need to order some red cardstock. I am having a hard time telling on my computer which red is the brightest. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance!

Hi Melissa. I would say that Red Hot is the brightest. Wild Cherry is also bright, but has darker undertones. Electric Red is a deeper red. You can see a color comparison below:

Thank you SO much for doing these Jody! As someone who is still pretty new to MFT card stock I've been buying the assortment pack and the will be a huge help in figuring out what is what.
