It seems to me that most people don’t quite use something as thick as cardstock. I’m using what paper source calls cover weight paper and making the invites myself. It’s maybe the weight of four or five sheets of computer paper put together. I don’t really know but it is not at all flimsy.Cost wise all my supplies (I’m embossing a ton of stuff) ended up costing about $260 for what will hopefully amount to 250 invites or so( including envelopes/rsvp stuff).

I think I bought a ream of 100lb paper from Staples for $15 (250 sheets).  I used it for my save the date postcards and that weight is was pretty good.  Just be aware of the grain of the paper because it will be more flimsy in one direction.

I went with linen cardstock from paperandmore.  It was a nice weight, went through the printer with no problem and I loved the added hint of texture.

i got almost all my paper from Paper Presentation.  i think if you get at least 100 lb cardstock, that will be a good heft.
