Default Where do you get your clear cardstock?

I am on the hunt for some clear "cardstock". I've seen a few cards over the last year or so that really make me want to try the technique. But finding clear "cardstock" sturdy enough for a card base has proven to be something of a challenge. I tried some overhead transparencies, but they are way too light.
I did find that PTI carries it, but the cost of shipping to Canada is just too prohibitive.
So does anyone else carry this stuff?

You can get clear report covers from Staples that are excellent for card bases STAPLES | BUREAU EN GROS . I also use them to store my stamps on. You can buy pads of acetate from Michaels - Recollections brand. Its kind of expensive, so I would use a coupon to buy it. I bought a pad of it and its a nice weight. It was $17.99 for 25 sheets here in Calgary.

Thank you catwoman! Staples is five minutes walk up the road. "That was easy!"

If your Staples has a copy centre, they may have the report covers loose that they can sell you if you don't want to buy a whole package. I usually by the binding coils from them this way...
