Default DSP question

Does DSP stand for Designer Series Paper or for Double-Sided Paper? If it is the former, does it have to be Stampin' Up brand to be considered DSP?

Well, I'm not sure if there is an official rule anywhere, but I can verify that DSP is the acronym used by Stampin' Up! to refer to Designer Series Paper (aka patterned paper). I suppose it may be different for each person, but after 15+ years as a demonstrator, I have to remind myself to call it patterned paper and not DSP - regardless of the brand

It's possible that other people use it to refer to double-sided paper. Perhaps someone else can chime in and clarify that part.

I've always thought that DSP stood for Stampin' Up's Designer Series Paper. I've never used it to refer to double-sided paper. I guess there are no rules, but it does get confusing when I see other people using DSP to describe all double-sided papers. And not all patterned paper is double-sided, yet some people still use DSP to describe it.

The acronyms on this site are legendary in their ability to confuse me! DSP, DPS, EP, EF, DH, PP, ETC LOL!

When I'm listing my supplies, I just refer to it all no matter what brand as "dp" - in my mind, that stands for either designer paper or decorative paper. As long as people know that I mean patterned paper as opposed to a background I stamped myself.

I use "DP" as well for designer paper in general. Never occurred to me about double sided since a lot of it is not. But am also not rooted in a SU history. (Stamping up)
