What kind would you like?

It's also referred to as overhead transparency and, in stamp stores, "window plastic".

For cheapest deal possible, but you'll have to buy it in a box of at least 10 sheets, check out Office Max or any office supply store.

The same thing sold in stamp stores as "window plastic" usually costs considerably more, but you are usually buying by the sheet or smaller than 10 sheet quantity.

If you wish to emboss on it with a heat gun, you'll need the type that is referred to as thermal resistance transparency and it's designed to go through a photocopier.

If you want to print on acetate with your inkjet printer, you'll want "Inkjet Transparency"--much more costly, but can be found for fairly reasonable (in comparison to Office Supply stores) at WAL MART and, by luck, I stumbled across cheapest prices for it ever at K Mart! I got a 10 sheet package there for around $6. If you try to buy the stuff at Office Max, you have to buy a 30 sheet box, and it's around $30+ for it. Go figure.

HTH,

In the Sta'mpin' Up! catalog, the window sheets are on p. 216. They are $2.95 for 3 sheets.
