Default Any Source for This Paper?

What I wish I could find is this: inexpensive tablet of text-weight paper, 12 x 12, solid color variety with white back. I would like to have it for envelope making, but, although it seems simple enough, I don't think I have ever seen such a tablet. Aside from stray solid color pages I find in some tablets I usually have to be content with texture design scrapbook tablets that have minimal design. Cardstock envelopes just add unnecessary weight.

Did a quick we search and cane up with this company that has text weight 12x12 paper in packs of 25 - tons of colors/finishes.

12 x 12 Paper: 12 x 12 Specialty Paper in Any Color, Finish & Weight

Heres another source...the link goes to one of their texts weight 12x12....
Lots more on site if you search for it. LCI is reputable company that Ive done orders with (bought a bunch of colors of Woodgrain texture cs that is hard to find). Anyway they are good company & have incrediblely wide inventory of papers!

Ultimate White Linen Paper, 12 x 12 LCI 70lb Text - LCI Paper

Im sure others will chime in on this.
I know you were looking for 12x12 text on a pad, these papers dont fit that criteria, but might offer an alternative way to go.
Good luck in your hunt?

I recommend taking walks through JoAnn's to check out DCWV stacks and Hobby Lobby to look at their own brand of stacks (Paper Studio?). I remember seeing pads of lighter weight papers in both of those collections. Happy shopping!

I use tabloid size (17” x 11”) paper to make envelopes. Staples sells the paper in lots of colors. Tabloid paper is much less expensive than 12” x 12” paper and the size makes all the size envelopes I need

Thanks for looking into this. I suppose I should be content with the cheap tablet of colors with textured patterns; there really are a lot of color variations in it. It does surprise me, though, that paper manufacturers don't see more of a demand for solid color text weight paper tablets. They seem so versatile. On the other hand, I need another pattern tablet like a hole in the head and won't likely be buying their offerings of pattern, text weight or cardstock.

Check Walmart's stock too - their paper in pads tends to be very light weight.
