Ha!  I am right where you are at right now.  We went to Paper Zone yesterday and looked at a lot of different papers to see what would work.  I think we’re going to go with one of the handmade papers that you buy by the sheet (the beautiful ones that hang in the front of the store).  We’re doing them relatively narrow, so it shouldn’t cost too much!

The band that I have made for my invitations is actually copy paper.  I chose copy paper because it seemed to be the perfect weight.  I printed the pocketfold off of my computer.

Farley… Paper Source has a couple of different weights of paper.  Their text weight is the lightest one.  I’m not sure if that’s the one that is too heavy for your band or not.  As for stamping the initials, you can use a white pigment ink, like the ones from ColorBox.  If you won’t be printing anything on the bands, you can simply trim the paper into strips, stamp, wrap and seal (with double-sided tape).

Good luck!  :o)

I purchased a custom stamp for my daughters wedding from Creative Images online,  the cost was reasonable and I recieved it very quickly.. Also you can get some nice paper for the bands at LCI Paper.  Good Luck  Love your idea
