Default Looking for the most fade resistant black or dark card stock

I want to buy the most light fast or fade resistant "smooth" black and dark colored card stock. but I don't know which are the best . No black will be totally light fast but I am sure there must be some that resist fading more than others .

Any suggestions ?
Thanks
Barbara

I really like Neenah Epic Black cardstock (their Red Pepper is great too!) I get the Linen finish but I'm pretty sure it comes in Smooth. The black is REALLY black and I haven't seen any fading.l

I have several dark colors from GinaK (including black), and have not noticed any problems with fading. My papers are stored away from windows out of direct light though.

Since cardstock production has changed so much in recent years, finding REALLY black has been driving me crazy. Did you order it over the internet Nancy? I would love to buy some!

I agree ! Lately most of the black card stock I see looks like the color of black dockers that were washed a gazillion times .

I did, I think from paperandmore.com, but I will double check when I get home (I'm at office)

You know, if you private message me your address I can mail you a little sample!
