Question cardstock?

I read a thread not to long ago that suggested a particular lb. for white cardstock that you could buy at staples, etc. That worked best for single layer cards. Does anyone remember what that lb. was? I can't find it!

110 # card stock is a good one, make sure it is at least 80# though

I don't know of the particulars of the kind recommended from staples, but do remember some folks raving about a GP cardstock available at Walmart. I think it was a 110 lb. weight. HTH!

Yes, 110. Do you have access to Sam's Club? Walmart carries a really nice ream of 110 white, and that's what I usually buy and so do many of my friends. You can get a BIG pack of it at Sam's Club, too, for a GREAT price, like $8 or something for 500 sheets!

I love SU's Whisper White. It is perfect for layering.

This is what I use. I blow threw tons of white cardstock between cards and scrapbooking. It's really kind of nice to buy this cardstock - it's inexpensive and I don't feel like I have to be super careful with it. It's a nice weight (but not as nice as SU's). For the price, you can't beat it.
