Default Glossy Cardstock

I haven't worked with this before but I see alot of cards made with it. OK Now the dumb question ... where do you buy glossy cardstock?

SU sells glossy cardstock. It is on page 204 of the current IB&C and is called glossy white. You get 25 sheets for $5.50.

HTH!

I love Kromekote!! I've been using this for 14 years and still love it. I usually buy mine from Kelly Paper or a printer's shop. I also love the weight.

Just to let you know...glossy cardstock and glossy photo paper are NOT the same thing. I learned the hard way.

Glossy photo paper's coat is made to interact with the chemicals required in photodevelopment. Yup, you will just get a big mess using photo paper.

The gloss coat for stamping and other craft uses is a clay slurry.

Which is why they look the same, but are not the same!

I did a demo last night with glossy card stock--I love what you can do with glossy. Anyway one of the gals said she bought some at Expedex and it DID NOT work! I guess all glossy is not created the same. I love SU's glossy.

WHOA! That's REALLY interesting about photo paper NOT being the same. Today I was at Staples and I bought some glossy paper. It was not PHOTO paper, and I assume it is NOT heavy. I got it for small things, like matting or adding onto a card front, etc. Has anyone gone to an office supply superstore and bought their glossy paper?

I have bought off-brand glossy paper and was very disappointed. The ink either didn't dry or faded into a dull color within a few hours. SU's glossy is a great quality and I now stick with only SU.
