Default Where do you buy ...

your cardstock from?
I usually only bought SU but i am now branching out more than ever to other companies. I just looked at PTI and love their colors!
But before I order from anywhere I want to see whats all out there.
Thanks!

Mostly SU, but I have gotten,(and really like), PTI and Gina K. For special paper, I like the shimmer paper from Clear Artistic Stamps and the core'dinations paper. I'm not sure who makes the core'dinations, but I get it from my friend's craft shop, Ye Olde Outhouse. http://stores.yeoldeouthouse.com/StoreFront.bok

I use Gina K for my copics. Mostly SU for card stuff. Bazzill for Scrapbooking (it's heavy and textured, love it!).

Gotten to where I prefer Bazzill, will also use DCWV because I can get it on sale so cheaply. For fancy white paper--I go to my local paper store (like an office store that specializes in paper) for Neenah Classic Crest Solar white--super smooth, stamps excellent and works great with copics

Here are the main ones I use: PTI, Bazzill, Prism. If it's a cheap card base white that I want I usually use GA Pacific White. I also still have some Neenah.

I love Prism cardstock. I like the surface finish and the "hand". And I'm partial to their color selection too. Some of the pearly papers are to die for.

But really there are a lot of great cardstocks out there. Isn't it wonderful to have so many choices.

Another vote for PTI ~ & I like Bazzill too! I'm sure I'd love GinaK ~ but I'm really trying to be more responsible & use what I've got first ~ plus, I'd like to see more colors first...

Another vote for PTI here. I love their paper (and stamps, and inks, and buttons, and ribbon). The paper is thick and gorgeous....and I love coordinating colors with the inks, buttons, and ribbon. Right now I am completely addicted to Enchanted Evening....so pretty. This card says it all:

I'll start by saying I am a bit biased lol but I have used Prism for several years. I use the Prismatics for scrapbooking and card layers/bases. I use Prism's Simply Smooth White for Copics (same name as CHF, but not the same card stock). If you have taken a Copic class they use it in those quite often. They also have some great shimmery colors called Metallics that are heavier weights and very pretty for card bases and range from 92-111lb and many even match their envelopes.

SU is great but PTI has become my fave and my collection is growing. PTI's paper is thick, very smooth and the color saturation/vibrancy is top notch. It's excellent and their colors are gorgeous.

I got back into the world of stamping/cardmaking after a StampinUp party, but just could not afford to stock my collection of supplies with SU. I stumbled upon PTI through splitcoast and other internet searches...and I'm so thankful! Each month I add to my ever-growing collection of PTI and I am in stamp heaven! Quality, coordinated products, versatile stamp sets...unlimited possibilities! And I love Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates. They are so easy to use and make great gift sets!

I just got my first PTI order TODAY!! I got the 2008 multipack. I think I am going to be slowly as I run out switching from SU to PTI. I like the fact that they have inks and ribbon to match. OH the different kinds of ribbon! All the colors in all of the styles. I like not having to plan a card around ribbon availability. If I want to make a cutesy card with polka dot ribbon I want to be able to do it in any color. Does that make sense?

Yay! Enjoy your new paper! I {heart} PTI! They have fantastic colors, love the weight of their paper, and their customer service is top notch.

And yes! Totally makes sense that you want polka dot ribbon in a VARIETY of colors. I love being as color coordinated as I do or don't want to be.
