I got mine at Arciver's. It made by Graffix. There is a coupon avaiable for them right now. 3$ off a 15$ purchase. Someone here may be able to give you the link. HTH!

I haven't actually looked, but I'll bet you could find some at an office supply, like Office Depot or Staples.

I have a big box of transparency sheets that I bought at Staples. They're the thin kind of acetate, really not thick enough for a card base. I took a clear cards class at Archiver's this summer and that stuff was spendy!!

Are acetate sheets the same thing as overhead transparencies?

Pretty much. There are 2 different kinds of transparency sheets - one that is smooth on both sides and one that has one rough side. I think the latter is the kind that can go through a laser printer. The thicker stuff that's used for card bases I've only seen at Archiver's & it's much more expensive.

The one with a rough side is for inkjet not laser. It's considerably more expensive and I keep mine exclusively for printing on because of that.

Thanks for all the information ladies. I too wondered about where to buy acetate. Will look into Staples & Office Depot.

Default clear cardstock

Flourishes has awesome clear cardstock if you want to make clear cards like they demo-ed at Archiver's. Flourishes price is much, much better though. I have ordered from them and they are great. Also, I know there is a site called Sheetload Shortcuts that sells frosted and clear cardstock and pre-cut A4 sized cards blanks. I have not ordered from them personally.


Link to Flourishes (it's called Crystal Clear Cardstock):

I bought a box of sliding bar report covers (clear) at Staples - they work great!

I bought mine at Staples. I never bought the whole box (did not need 100 sheets), but I did go tot he copy center and they sold me a some. It is actually cheaper to do it that why. They work out to less per sheet. They are also thicker. I used them as the card itself and just had a smaller square of cardstock on it and there was more than enough stability for it to stand on its own.

Does anyone know what the thickness difference is between the ones at Archivers that are a good thickness for a card base, compared to the others a Office Max that are not? I would like to know what weight to look for when picking some up.

I bought mine at a local store" Xpedx" listed under "printing supplies" in the yellow pages. They are a paper & graphics supplier in my area--so you may check that out in your area too. I couldn't find any thickness listed on the package--but I used mine for Christmas cards last year & they turned out great--my next project will be to figure out how to upload pic's !!

I bought a box of transparencies and they seem to work fine for cards, other than user error. I have a hard time stamping on them without it making a mess.

I found a tablet of transparencies at Michaels a few weeks ago. They were in the fine art area with the jounals and sketch books, tucked way down in the corner. I think I paid around $10-12.
