Question Where to buy cardstock?

Hello All

I was just wondering where everyone gets their cardstock from? I am looking to branch out.

Thanks

Michelle

I thought about SU but its the shipping costs that sort of stop me from ordering.

I use a lot of SU, but I'll put in another vote for Gina K. In fact, I placed an order with her on Wednesday evening, and my box arrived today (Saturday). And like someone said, shipping is free if the order's at least $50.

I may be a little prejudiced, but I'm loving the cardstock that Mark's Finest Papers has. Lots of colors, several different textures, and a brand new 100 pound white that is wonderful.

I'm in love with Pure Luxury by Gina K! The white is my fave ever for Copic coloring!

I've been kind of turning into a bit of a treehugger, so I purchased a nice lot from people that are getting out of scrapbooking. I found some great deals on an internet auction. Wanted to try to reuse/recycle what's already been put out there, to save a few trees.

I vote for Gina K pure luxury line of cardstock- it is wonderful. I plan on trying PTI sometime in the future. Both companies offer free shipping for a min. order unlike SU that charges shipping on all orders and it is expensive.

I agree, shipping On SU! is out of sight!! I won't order from them, unless I go in with someone, and we share the shipping cost.

I do agree on SU shipping. I have a lot of SU paper, but I mostly order from PTI now. I really like the fact that they have free shipping on order of $60, and the cardstock is thicker than SU.

I think SU! has the best cardstock! The colors are beautiful and if you're wondering, it works nicely with the Cricut. Hope you find something you enjoy!

Mark's Finest Papers "Snowstorm Smooth" is an absolute dream to work with! So is PTI's Stampers Select White and Vintage Cream. I haven't used any SU paper, but desperately want some of their Cherry Cobbler.

I started with SU, but as many of you have already said, their shipping is to high for me. So I got into Gina K, love it! Mark's Finest paper, love it!

I purchase all my white and cream from Papertrey Ink. All colored cardstock I get from SU.

I almost hate to say this, since everyone here are SU, PTI, and GinaK fans, but I use white GP Image Plus from Sam's Club. It's 110lb, I have not had any problems while stamping on it and it works great in my printer. I do not have any copics so I do not know how they would do on this paper.
