I got 130lb cardstock and sort of regret it.  I had to go to Kinkos to use their heavy duty paper cutter because the crappy ones available at Michael’s and Staples don’t work.  If I could do it again I would go with 100 or 110lb paper.  On top of being hard to cut, since the paper is thicker and I’m doing pocketfolds, my inserts didn’t fit with the original design.  I had to make the inserts 4.5″ wide instead of the theoretical 5″ wide.

100 lb cover – but mine are matted and in pocketfolds. I’d do 110 if it was a stand alone.

I’m using 80# cardstock and it’s perfect for my needs.  I’m printing everything on my inkjet printer and I don’t think it would let me use anything thicker than that!  They will be matted, so I guess 160# total!
