i’m diying our inviations and i’m making RSVP postcards. now what is the best paper to use? we don’t really have a paper store by me(just JoAnn’s, Michaels, A.C. Moore and Hobby Lobby) and i picked up just regular packaged card stock for scrapbooking but it seems kind of thin. so i’m wondering what would be the best for the postcards? i don’t want anything super thick and expensive but i feel like the paper i have is just really flimsy and will rip easily.
Thanks in advance!

Walmart has parchment paper. It is really thick and sturdy. I used it for my programs. The parchment is “marbled” and available in white or ivory.
It is seven bucks for 80 sheets. What you could do is make multiple postcards per sheet then cut them to the size you want.
Hope this is what you were wanting.

You should at least have 65# or 80# cardstock / paper for postcards. Anything thinner than that won’t hold up through the mail. 🙂
Call a print shop and ask a few questions if you’re worried!

I agree with PP, I beleive that we had to have a minimum of 80# paper.
We used 110# and they still got beat up.

We used 100# linen, and they got very beat up.

We went with 80# cardstock from paperandmore.com (very quick shipping!) and I wished we had used 100 or 110, because it was thinner than I expected. It worked though. 🙂
