So, for the longest time I was set on getting the Cardsandpockets.com pocketfold. I found the color I wanted and ordered a sample. It arrived and while I LOVE the concepts and customer service from them, the pocketfold itself was flimsy and not as heavy as I thought. It might also be because the color I want doensn’t come in metallic which is a heavier paper. I’ve already ordered some other samples from Paperpresentation.com.
Any other places I should take a look at to just get a pocketfold?

Have you checked envelopeme.com?
I had the same problem with Cardsandpockets, and they also don’t carry a 6×9 size.

hi sfsundae, i noticed you’re in the bay area…so you could check out Flax Art (http://www.flaxart.com) on Market & Valencia in SF. They carry Envelopements pocketfolds. I’m not sure if they have the cheapest prices, but you can at least check out the material before purchasing.

mygatsby.com has pocketfolders also, but the catch with them is that they do not use standard/typical sizes for their stuff, so you have to order all the accompanying items from them- i.e. they use a 5.25×7.25 for their pocketfolder… which a typical A7 envelope does not fit in.
They have VERY heavy stock though, I really loved theirs a LOT but their invites are 50cents more than cards and pockets (im on a tight tight budget).

I’m actually making mine out of 11 x 17 90lb cardstock. Plus I got to make a new version of the pocketfold that is not offered by any vendor.

I love the pocketfolds from Paper Source. You could check their website http://www.paper-source.com or, there are a couple of stores in your area that you could go and check out.

I received my samples from paperpresentation.com last night and they were pretty fast. The cardstock version IS a lot thinner than the metallic. But I think once you start layering the mat and invite on top – and add the inserts if you are going to do that – it will get pretty thick.

My friend just ordered pocketfolds from a website http://www.invitationstar.com, they are metallic and very high quality, and I think she only paid 1.00 each! She sid they were great to work with as well.
