I’m getting most of my cardstock from Hobby Lobby b/c for the most part I just need white and will print all my stuff (with backgrounds) right on that…. AND they have really great sells on their Scrapbooking stuff! IDK if ya’ll have Hobby Lobby’s but their single sheets aren’t listed on their site.

I did see something about CARDSTOCK <—- here. =)

I ordered from Paper and More and was suppper happy with them. I will say though, we did the linen cardstock (bright white) and it came out BEAUTIFUL, but once we got them all cut it felt a lot thinner than I’d realized while it was still in bigger sheets. I wish we’d designed the invites a little smaller and done a two layer thing with a solid color behind. But that may well have bumped us up a price bracket on our postage, so I guess I should be happy.

I’d say if you’re going to go single sheet and want to have a more professional feel, stick with 100# or 110# cardstock. Or layer it. 🙂

I got some off of Etsy (not cheap, but the designs/prints were that which I could not find in stores).

My SO’s Aunty bought some Cardstock from Wal-Mart & a Dollar store (of all places) and gave it to us.

I’ll probably be going to Micheal’s (or other typical craft store) for the last few things I want, but I am definitely going to check out these links first! 🙂

I bought all of mine at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s.  Hobby Lobby had a 50% off sale so their 12×12 sheets were $.30 and their 8.5×11 sheets were $.15.  I bought the paper at Michael’s when they had it for 4/$1.
