Default When using Copic markers, which Neenah cardstock do I need for the best results?

And where can I find it?

I've been buying it at my local stamp store by the sheet, but its is getting way too expensive.


Thanks, Sherri

It's not Neenah, but I HIGHLY recommend Hammermill Color Copy Digital Cover. I switched to this a couple of years ago... I personally prefer it to Neenah, and it's much more affordable! I use the 80# because it feeds easily thru my printer, and I color a lot of digis, but I've heard the 100# is also excellent!

I buy the "solar white" ( color) in the "smooth" finish in both the 80# & the 110# (by the ream)
(you want the ones with the "C" at the end they call cardstock "cover")

You can buy directly from Neenah, or Amazon sells reams. So does SSS and Ellen Hutson - small packs and reams - Neenah Classic Crest, not Neenah Exact Index. You can get a booklet from Neenah with the paper in every color.

Ellen Hutson: https://www.ellenhutson.com/Search.h...category=F2587

If you google Neenah Classic Crest a bunch of other stores will pop up too.

For some things bright white seems a little harsh. Do you ever color with Copics on one of the off-white colors? Please share your experiences. Thanks!

I use the Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, both 80 lb cover and 110 lb cover. I have bought it at several places but just received an order from Tupelo Designs. It is on sale there, you get freebies and free shipping with the order. Here's the link. https://www.tupelodesignsllc.com/sea...st+solar+white

Thanks! I use the Solar white but was wondering about one of the off-white colors and how that would work.

Annie, just fyi you can call/contact Neenah and request a sample set - a small, bound set that has different papers and all the colors. Neenah Paper | Letterpress, Colored, and Textured Paper Company is the website.

I haven't used the Neenah but I use cryogen white, both the cover and text weight and I love it, it's similar to Stampin Up shimmer white and the copics glide on it better. It's NOT a bright white more like a winter white. I've been using that since I started with copics years ago and I still like it the best. The text goes thru my printer just fine for digitals. I get it from Cut Cardstock www.cutcardstock.com I also use it for my scenic stamping as well.

Thanks so much! I decided to place an order with them and I'm excited it was free shipping. I invested all this money in Copics and need a great cardstock to go with it. I buy it per sheet at my stamp store and pay as least double for it there so I can't wait to get it.

Look at Sandy Allnock's website for her Copic Grid color chart or her Copics 101 page and see where she compares Copics on Nennah Solar White, Neenah Bright White, Neenah Desert Storm and another one that I CANNOT remember at the moment. Sorry, I am getting old!

Anyway, on these different papers, you can see how the color stays but the tint(?) change. I admit to using my Copics on Desert Storm and a retired color from Stampin' Up! called Baked Brown Sugar. It kind of looked like brown paper bags. To get good color, I had to put a piece of cardstock under the colored image because I laid down a lot of ink, I actually embossed the image with black embossing powder to limit bleeding and between the Copics and a few Decorese gel pens, it came out a very masculine looking card which is what I was striving for.

What I did after that was to take a few 2" by 4" pieces of different kinds of cardstock, like Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar & Tip, Top Taupe (all SU), Whip Cream (FSJ), Cream (Neenah), Glossy (Ranger) and a few others, made small swatches on each of them with copic markers in 4 primary, 4 gray, 4 earth and a streak of Copic white ink.
I then used the blender on the bottom half of the colored swatches in order to see what the colors look like blended a bit.
I punched a hole in the corner and slid them onto a binder ring. I keep them hanging on a hook near my design area.

Thanks to that little ring of cardstocks, I not longer waste cardstock or my time! It not only saves me money and time, it opened up new ideas on what I can do with stamped images and the copics being able to see that I am not limited to white!

I hope this helps someone new to the Copic world....or any of the other alcohol, pigment or dye markers out there.
