So far I’ve ordered samples from Cards & Pockets and Paper & More – and been very happy with the paper quality.
Now I see that Envelope Mall carries metallic Cardstock/Paper (Stardream or Shine Metallics) for even LESS. I feel bad because I’ve been getting all my samples shipped to my Grandparents in the US, so I was wondering if anyone here can give me an idea of the quality (ideally if the quality compares to the metallic paper from Paper & More or Cards & Pockets)?
Their paper works out to $0.19 or $0.22 per sheet, versus closer to $0.30 per sheet!

Sorry to bump – but I’m actually starting to wonder if the paper from the different sources is really just the same stuff (Stardream….) in the colours I’m looking at:
Paper & More – Rose Pink & Pink Azalea
Cards & Pockets – Rose & Fuchsia
Envelope Mall – Rose Quartz (and they don’t carry the Azalea…)
On the Cards & Pockets site it says that Fuchsia = Stardream Azalea, and Rose = Stardream Rose Quartz
Since I’ve ordered samples from Paper & More and Cards & Pockets, if the stuff from Envelope Mall is the same, I guess it should all be the same quality!!

I used Envelop Mall for matalic and linen envelops and I loved them! The paper was heavy, finish was great but I had to get different pens to write on them with.
I can’t speak to the paper though but I hope I was able to help!

I’ve ordered envelopes from envelope mall and they’re great! They also have really fast shipping, which is awesome!

Thank you guys for the info 🙂 ChiCat, i’d love to hear more about the quality once you receive your samples!
Its so annoying how every site sells a few items cheaper than the other sites, but don’t have everything you need, or are way too expensive for something else, etc. Looks like i’m going to be buying from a combination of sites, and paying more shipping!

If you need bigger packages, I’ve found paper-papers.com to be very cost effective. They even sell some of the paper-source stuff.

I got the stardeam rose quartz cover cardstock (at half the price of the next cheapest place) and I couldn’t see any difference. It’s lovely, good quality paper. The envelopes (just their standard colored non-metallic ones) that I ordered were great too.
