For colored cardstock, I use SU most often. I do have some Bazzill and an assorted package of PTI colored cardstock, but I rarely pull it out to use it.

For white and ivory, I've tried several different brands. SU is nice and smooth but not very sturdy for card bases. PTI is thick and sturdy - but when I received my order from them, they hadn't padded the shipment well and UPS didn't handle the box very gently, so the corners of the cardstock packages were somewhat smushed. (I blame both PTI and UPS equally for that.) When I was running low on PTI white, I decided to give Gina K's Pure Luxury a try - and oh my, that stuff is awesome! It's a brighter white than PTI, which IMO gives it an appearance of higher quality. Both weights are just lovely to work with. I'm planning to try Gina K's ivory when I need to reorder that color. I recently bought some Neenah Solar White and it's very nice, too.
