twocatcupcake was very helpful with giving me a site that sells cardstock, but I want thick cardstock, not thick thick, that it will jam up my printer, haha, but something not so flimsy. What weight should I order? I don’t know all this stuff about cover weight and text weight and stuff like that. Someone please help! Thanks!
For example is Smooth Cardstock 100lb Coverweigh a thick cardstock? Will it probably get stuck in my printer if I try to print on it? I need help, haha.
(Sorry I am so dumb with paper, haha.)

This might help:
I prefer cover weight when making cards that fold. I find heavier paper to be too thick to fold without scoring it first. Cover weight won’t get stuck in your printer.

I personally bought 80lb cardstock to use because I want to be able to fold the paper. If you don’t have to fold the the paper, I would go as high as 100 lb cardstock and it should be able to go through your printer. Anything higher could jam your printer.

Thanks Bees! I don’t need to fold the paper, it is just a flat STD. Thank you so much. 🙂
