@MrsMcGyro: I just came from Staples. I’m using the 110lb cardstock in white. I went to buy the ivory but it looked vaguely yellow to me!

@MrsMcGyro: I would use at least 80#. Could you possibly supply your own paper? I used 80# with my program fans b/c I am doing fan programs and using two sheets per fan. Together they were sturdy enough. I think 67# would be too light.

There are some bees who have done programs similar to yours though so maybe some of them will chime in.

I am making fans too but type that  has a wooden stick in it and I am using the 110lb from staples in Ivory… I prefer the creamy ivory over the white. I think the 67lb is too light

@MrsMcGyro:  Is there anyway that you can change your order??  I had fan programs and they were too thin.  The guests were unable to fan themselves because they were floppy.  I’d see if you can go thicker.  Good Luck!

@bells: Me too! I just went to staples over lunch to get my paper. I thought the ivory was too creamy…now I’m rethinking it 🙁

We got our printed at Staples (Program fans) and used 110lb Ivory Cardstock.  I am glad I did because anything less than that woudl of been too thin.  They should be able to print it on 110lb cardstock.

I am doing paddle fans and we are using one sheet of 110 and one sheet of 120 (stardream) back to back. Its perfectly sturdy, although it is a different fan type/style. I would say go as thick as you can!
