For paper cut to custom sizes (large or small) I like http://www.anchorpaper.com. They’re great with the free samples, just go to the Express store and email them with what you’re looking for.

As for size of paper, it depends on what you’re planning to do with it. If you’re going to make pocketfolds, it’s good to get your paper cut to the dimensions of the unfolded pocket, so all you have to do is score, fold, and glue. If you’re going to be printing anything with a home printer or going to Kinko’s to print, get it 8.5 x 11", because most stores won’t print on anything smaller than that, and it’s easier on your printer to print on letter sized paper too. If you’re doing it all on the Gocco, then go ahead and get the sheets cut to the right size for your pieces.

And remember, when ordering cardstock, make sure it’s COVER WEIGHT and not text weight, even if the text weight number is higher than the cover weight number. 80-lb cover weight is probably good for all your projects.

Papersource has decent paper, but their prices… not so much. Paperandmore.com has a decent selection.

I actually ordered my pocket folders from cardsandpocketsstore.com because it was worth the extra 50 cents per folder not to have to do those myself- I don’t have the steadiest hand. (they cost 1.00 each) But I’m doing the rest myself… 🙂 I know I’m a cheater.

http://atlas.walagata.com/w/acgetty/inst_invite.html has a template for pocketfolders.

 

Good luck!
