After checking out several brands of cardstock I have started buying the Gina K brand and I just love it. It is such a nice heavy weight that is great for card bases and I love the colors. I think it's a better weight than the SU and CTMH cardstock. I am probably going to stock up on all the colors. Check it out if you are looking for cardstock; there are sampler packs you can try out.
A very happy customer.
Yes, I ordered G.K. awhile ago, because I wanted a sturdier white card base and also vanilla. While I like SU colored cardstock I felt the white and vanilla were not good for a card base (not strong enough). I did buy some other G.K. colors as well, but haven't used those yet. (I do have a lot of SU colors)
I was VERY happy with Gina's service and quality of cardstock....
I'm on a "cardstock moratorium" now, until I use up some of my stash, but Gina Ks is what I will order next for cardstock. It sounds great and I know many people on SCS rave about her customer service.
Thanks, Karen, for the update. I've been waiting to hear. I appreciate it and think I'll give them a try.
I had always heard/read good things about the Hero Arts ink, but just recently read a few not happy with them. I bought two barely used Shadow Inks to try, but I'm leaning more and more to the Gina K. Haven't had a chance to try them yet ( the Hero Arts that I got.) Hope to soon!
I have had trouble finding a good heavy black cardstock for years. I think the last good black paper I got was from PTI. So based on the discussion in this thread I placed an order today for Gina K's heavy black cardstock. I've heard lots of good things about Gina K's pure luxury for a long time now, so I'm excited to get some and check it out. I also got some heavy weight in Ivory and a few colors in layering weight. Thanks for the good info in the thread.
