Default Journals - What paper?

I'm making some journals and don't want to use a store-bought notebook to alter. I'd like to know what other people are using for the lined paper (and where to purchase it), a better quality than notebook or theme paper, preferred.

Try Aaron Bros. and Paper Source. They both sell "parts" to make books so they may carry the paper you are looking for. Not sure what they have on line but in their stores they have a good selection.

I love to make my own books. I have recently made several password books and I use Staples Laser paper in bright white, 28 lb. It is a bit heavier than regualr printer paper, it is super smooth (one of my musts) and the bright white isn't blinding. It isn't as white as SU whisper white to give you an example. I use Microsoft word to make my own lined paper template.

Here is an example:

You're welcome. I found it them when I was looking for some graph paper to draw octagons once, and was so thrilled to find all the other types of paper- us crafters & our paper addiction, eh?

Thanks for all of the ideas - not only did this help me complete the project I was working on but great ideas for future ones came to me, too!
