Try looking in the art section at the craft stores. That is where I found the thicker paper for my pocketfolds.

Also, the paper stacks at Joanns and Michaels might be thick enough for what you want.

Have you tried doing a mock up with two sheets glued together? That might make it thick enough; maybe???

Also, what about poster board?

Try looking at paper source or paper presentation (both online).  They have both text weight paper and cover weight paper.

Do you have scrapbooking stores in town? Usually they have thicker card stock.

You can also try Keldon Paper in California (though they might be a little more pricey). In the craft arena, try Dick Blick art supplies–depending on how large you need the sheets to be, you can buy pads of art paper at different weights, although I think the heaviest weight is about 140 (which is a cover weight).

What about skipping the paper aisle at the craft stores, and check out the kid crafting aisle. I’m thinking the big sheets of 20×36 (?) sizes that come in white/black/flourescent colors that we used as kids for posters & projects. Huge & heavy weight. If your craft stores don’t have them, I’ve seen them in the Crayola aisle at walmart as well as in those educational teacher store type of places. Just a thought. Good luck!

cover is actually typically considered 80lb (check out Paper Source, they carry cover and its at 80lb) you can get 180 or 220, which is what a letterpress would usually use, but its exponentially more expensive the heavier you go, i personally dont think it would be worth the extra $$

ive seen program fans done in 110 and they were fine.

I did mine with the paper source 110 and it was a little light, but completely passable.  Be careful, because really thick paper might not make it through your printer if that’s how you’re planning to make them.
