I’m ordering cardstock for our favors and escort cards, and I’ve run into a problem only other brides will understand haha. My escort cards are going to be cream/offwhite matted with different colors for the different meals (I had to somehow differentiate it on the placecards for the waiters). I know I am ordering from Paper Source, because I used to live near one, and the Lake color is the exact same as our bridesmaids dresses (I almost used it for diy invites before ordering them instead). So I’d rather just order all of my paper from them. Unfortunately, I recently moved to a state that doesn’t have a PS 🙁 and now I can’t decide between the “cream” and “fino cream” paper. What is the color difference between them? Which one is lighter, and which is darker? They will be going on white tableclothes, but I want something a little softer than white for these diy projects. Thanks!
tldr version: Can anyone explain the difference between Paper Source’s “cream” and “fino cream” paper?

So right now I am holding the paper source swatch book. It has all of their current colors with the exception clover and fig. I’m going to assume that you are talking about the difference between luxe fino cream and luxe cream. To me the difference is not very big but the fino cream is a smidge bit more yellow than the regular cream.

Thank you so much! This was exactly what I needed to know. I will go ahead and order the cream. Thanks!

No prob. I think if you need something lighter the regular luxe cream will be fine. It won’t be as bright as the fino white but not as yellow as the luxe fino cream.

I actually asked them this question at Paper Source on Saturday because I printed my invites on the fino cream and now want to do my programs on the same color. Paper Source is no longer are stocking the fino cream because they were not entirely happy with the way the texture of the paper turned out. So, they theoretically should be the exact same color (because they come from different dye lots there can always be a tiny variation in the color). The difference is that the cream paper is more textured and a bit thicker than the fino cream. I purchased the cream for the programs and couldn’t see a difference at all.
