Recently, after deciding I did not want to pay a high shipping cost to have a ream of plain white cardstock delivered to me, I did an internet search and food several paper/office supply stores carrying the smooth, plain white cardstock I was looking for. My visit to one of these paper distributors was more than worthwhile. Not only did I find what I was looking for, I also found a very knowledgeable sales associate who provided a quick, but very thorough education on paper textures, weight and manufacturers. The ‘Paper Guy’ also informed me of comparable paper products at very REASONABLE prices. For instance, I found a comparable 80lb smooth and very white cardstock for just a little over $12.00 USD for a 250 count ream of paper! Really? Yes! Really! I plan on returning to discover other crafty finds and share them with you. So, if you are in the market for plain card stock, search online for local office supply/paper product stores in your area. I can almost guarantee you will see the value in visiting one of these stores, learn a thing or two about the different paper products and find something great at a price that fits well within your budget. I forgot to mention I also received 10-20 piece samples of card stock products to try. Personally, this is much more preferable to ordering sight unseen. So, go and search out your local paper store. Stay crafty!
