I am SU! all the way, no need to guess what matches what. The CS matches the DSP which matches the inks and markers. It's a no brainer for me.

SU! is the best - but rather pricey for me... I just use whatever I can get my hands on, I think! But if I can, I do get SU! for all colors and just plain old white from office supply stores.

I've never heard of PTI, where does one find that - is it an abbreviation for something?
I'm still working on the ream of white c/s that I bought from PaperZone a number of years ago. This is my second ream. Since I started stamping, I've only bought my white c/s and envelopes from PaperZone. The c/s is 80 lb with a smooth finish. I was starting to get into pop up cards and needed something that would hold up. Now I'm looking for an alternate source to SU's colored c/s as I don't like to wait for mail order.

Hope that helps.

I use SU colored cs but not the Whisper White. It is so flimsy that it is only good for layers. For card bases I use the Georgia Pacific brand from WalMart. It is heavier than SU white cs.

Another SU! c/s vote here. I plan to stock up at Salebration time. I do have an embarrassingly large stash of other c/s from when I first started ages ago. Recently I've been working on lots of projects and trying to use up that stash..and I have to say I've become a SU! c/s snob. Too many of the other papers I have are too flimsy for my projects. Some of them are ok. So I'm sticking w/SU! c/s. I don't have a LSS and Archivers is 45 minutes away so if I have to order online anyway unless I go to M's or HL. I like the matching of products and it seems like SU! colors seem to coordinate well w/whatever patterned paper I end up using. Andrea

I've liked SU! because of the weight and the coordination with ink, ribbon, and patterned paper. The wait is not a big deal for me, and it's easier for me to order online than get to a store sometimes. I do like the PaperTrey white for a base, but the SU! Whisper White for stamping detailed images for coloring. For patterned paper, it's more of an impulse.

Is there a way to order SU online without having a demonstrator?

Yes, you can. But you pay 10% more than if you designate a demo when you order.

You can't...you have to get it from somewhere else. I get mine from www.allthatscraps.com.

That being said, Prism is my favorite, too!
