Default Cardstock??

Does anyone know where to by white cardstock at a good price? I used to buy it at Sam's, but they are no longer carrying it at my local store.

Thanks,
Lauren

Wal-Mart carries a good one. I think it's clear, blue and black on the cover. 150 sheets sell for $4.99 or so.

It's by Georgia-Pacific; white; 110 lb. I use this all the time.

That's what I use too! It's good enough for card bases!

If you live in Ohio, there is a great place in Brunswick to get cardstock in bulk. It's $1.00 a pound. I prefer SU's colored cardstock just for the coordinating factor but I do buy all my white from this store. I have been able to find one that is almost identical to SU's Whisper White.

How much are the envelopes at Wal-Mart? I hate going to Wal-Mart but I might start going.

I can totally understand the desire to get white or off white cardstock as cheaply as possible, especially if you are just using it as a base. But I have a theory. It takes me hours to make most of my cards -- hey, I'm slow! So, I like to use the best supplies I can afford.

So, I only use SU ultrasmooth or Becketts Expression (from marcos) cardstock for white or off white. They both have the ultrasmooth feel to them and are superior for stamping and pencil work. I also think that they are whiter than the bulk paper.

Now, I won't use any of the above for watercoloring -- for a little watercoloring, Confetti White is fine, but watercolor paper can't be beat when you wan't the "real deal".

Is it heavy enough? Compared to the SU cardstock? I am sorry but I am clueless when a weight is posted on the package. I bought some at Micheals awhile back I thought it was too flimsy. Even for a base.

I think the c/s from Wal-Mart is about the same weight as SUs, at least I cant tell the difference in weight!

I would agree with that, Joan. I did some comparison with GP vs. SU! Whisper White and found there was a tremendous difference in the results I achieved, and that I really did prefer SU! WW. It just takes ink beautifully.

I use the GP to test colors, or make templates, or as a protectant sheet on cards I send through the mail that have embellishments (row4d, I believe, suggested crimping it for this purpose, which I thought was a splendid tip!)
