If you plan on doing the printing yourself, I suggest buying full sheets of paper that are 8.5×11 so your printer likes them.  Printers tend to jam with the smaller pieces of paper.  Then, you have to cut them down after.  Or you can take them to get cut.  I think that http://www.envelopperinc.com has the best variety of options, but they’re not the cheapest.  For sheets of paper, I like http://www.anchorpaper.com but their online store is kinda weird – if you email the owner Tom, he can figure out what you want and send you a personalized invoice.  For pocketfolds, http://www.cardsandpockets.com seems to have good sales, depending on your colors.  GL!!

Also, in regards to printing, dont go too heavy so you dont increase the likelyhood of a paperjam.  And clean your printer before printing them.  There are instructions for cleaning under the maintnence tab of your printer file.

As a paper vendor myself, one great DIY site I’ve found is http://www.lcipaper.com.  I often do design only packages for brides and refer my DIY brides to their website to purchase a kit to print my designs and assemble them themselvers.  Their paper stocks are thick enough to not seem cheap but not too thick that you can’t run them through a standard inkjet printer.

Best of luck with your project!
