Where do you live? In you are near NYC, I can rattle of a long list of paper shops that will captivate you for hours, even if you’re not super crafty. If you’re not near New York City, I would suggest checking out Paper Source. They also have stores in a few select locations. http://www.paper-source.com/

All of the paper we used was from Crane. However, the Crane website only allowed for large orders and thankfully I ran across Keldon Paper Company. Keldon was able to send me exactly the number of sheets I needed. They also cut the paper down to size (for an extra $15.) I ordered 200 sheets cut down to 5×7. I would end up printing the rsvp and reception card (designed to be 3.5 x 5) on a 5×7 sheet and cut it down later to save time. I also ordered 200 sheets of 110lb just in case (I’ll use it for our menus or programs) and spent $153.94 total. Do not under any circumstances attempt to cut your paper yourself. It’s worth the extra money to have clean and sharp edges. Trust me.

I also scoured New York Central Art Supply who carries an endless array of beautiful paper for printing, envelope lining and everything else you can imagine. You can read about my entire experience designing and printing our wedding invitaions here http://perfectbound.blogspot.com/search/label/our%20invitations and you can always email me if you have any questions at perfectboundblog (at) gmail (dot) com.

Anchor Paper is my favorite! 😉 Their website isn’t my favorite compared to other paper places but the customer service and prices can’t be beat. I deal with Tom there and he is always very prompt & helpful.

I ordered my pocketfolds from cardsandpockets.com and got all my apper (stardream) from cutcardstock.com and I was VERY happy with both.  They were both quick shippers, and cutcardstock has an option where they will cut down the paper to size, which was very helpful for me!!

Plus shipping is free for orders over $125

I have to agree with lmz319, Anchor was wonderful.  And Tom was the best service rep I’ve ever dealt with!

I ordered paper for our invitations from http://www.paperandmore.com which I had them cut to my desired size.  They shipped the paper very quickly, and I was 100% happy with the results.  (They also sell inexpensive sample sheets of paper.  I ordered samples to ensure the color and paper-weight were what I was looking for.)

I really like http://www.bluedotpapershop.com  Free shipping over $100!  The ‘STARDREAM’ collection is AWESOME!  I used it for my invitations!

I love paper-source but I don’t think it is the cheapest place to shop. I would agree with daisywu, bluedotpapershop.com proved to be one of the most reasonably priced shops I could find.
