Default Card stock - sort of urgent

Hi everyone. HOpe this finds you well. I have been MIA for about 3 months now. My business has taken off unexpectedly and left me no time for stamping, or my addiction to this site. The withdrawals were terrible. LOL !!!!

A few months ago, a very nice member recommened Papertreyink.com for card stock. I went immediately to the site and bought a package of 100 sheets and fell in love with it. It is not only great for stamping, but for my graphic designs that include holiday invites and birth announcements as well.

Here's my problem, I just went to the site and typed in the stock number
(3212) and nothing came up. I went to the basics area of the site and still could not find the paper. Is it me??? Do they still carry it? There is no phone number available and they only take emails which will be returned within 72 hours. Unfortunately, I don't have 72 hours to find they don't carry this.

So, any other suggestions? I can tell you I was not nearly as happy with SU's white, but I would take any other suggestions anyone can offer.

Thank you all so much for your time.
Altough I really don't want my business to slow down, I really DO want to get back to stamping! Miss you all!!!

Paula

Have you tried the Georgia Pacific paper from Walmart? Some people on here use it and love it. I also like prism cardstock. they sell a smooth white in packs of 50.

anyway, here's the papertrey paper and the stock # is 3203 and here's a link:

Papertrey no longer sells cardstock in packs of 100. I think that's the problem you've encountered.

I think I read that they don't carry the 100 pack any more. Sorry...not exactly sure as I haven't purchased from them....yet. But that the paper is available in smaller amounts.

They don't have the 100 sheet pack any more that I know of. I just ordered a couple packs of the 40. I know, bummer.

Neenah Classic Crest Solar White is my personal favorite--wonderful, substantial card stock, with a smooth finish that accepts markers and colored pencils wonderfully!

You can get a 250 sheet ream in 80 or 110 lb--just scroll the listings right on their site:

Not affiliated; just genuinely *love* this paper!

I just discovered the WONDERFUL Papertrey White ! I LOVE it!!

I had ordered 1 package of 40 sheets to try it out, hoping to get the 100 sheets from there on if I liked it.

So, yeah, what a bummer! Just when I decide I love the stuff, they stop the 100 pack! Oh, well. LOL! Now I order several packs at a time to make sure I do not run out as I am waiting for the UPS guy to bring the next shipment.

I never tried their colored cardstock. Is it the same weight (or whatever you call it)?

I always thought Neenah Classic Crest Solar White was what Papertrey sold. Anyone know?

If you're looking for something compatible to the Papertrey paper, I'd definitely go with Julie's recommendation for the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White ; Walmart's Georgia Pacific compares more to SU in weight;

I believe PaperTrey cardstock is 110 lb., which makes it heavier than the Neenah CS.

PaperTrey has the same cardstock; they just don't carry it in the packs of 100.

I just ordered the gold, silver, and blue shimmer paper and also the cream card stock and I love, love, love it. It's gorgeous. I also ordered some of the ribbon and it's beautiful. Very nice quality products.

These are the times when you wish they had a phone number so you could talk with a live human!

Anyway, yes they do still carry the paper, only it is no longer sold in packs of 100 sheets, only 40. The item # is 3205.

Actually, I've bought Neenah in both 80 lb. and 110 lb.; 110 lb. is more elusive out in b & m stores, but, you can get it at that link I posted above.

Julie, I looked at the Neenah website and some of their other cs looks intriquing. I mean the colors, have you used their colored cs? I see they have a lot of neutrals. I don't like that you can't get the neutrals in packs from stampin' up anymore.

I honestly haven't. I just use tons of the Solar White and Natural White (Comparable to SU! Vanilla).

Sorry I am not more help on that one.

the best place to ask papertrey a question isn't here, it is on PTI's OWN forum. There is a section called "ask papertrey" here is a link:
