Can anyone tell me, through their experience, what they feel is the best white cardstock for:
1. Inking (doing your own inked paper)
2. Printing your own paper
3. Print and cut techniques (tags, fussy cut embellishments, etc.)
4. Flower making

Curious about paper for each and/or for all. Thanks a bunch!

I like the Neenah solar white 80lb.
I use it for most everything now other than matting photos.

I find that I can't print 80lb cardstock on my desk top ink jet printer as it always gets hung up. I have to use thinner cardstock like open stock, cut it down to fit my printer then I can print.

Anyone have a better suggestion? Is there a 81/2 x 11 cardstock paper that is less than 80lbs in white or cream that would work?

Some printers have a slot in the back that you can feed the paper through so it goes straight through and doesn't bend. Check your manual for your specific printer. HTH.

Neenah does have a 65 lb paper. I’ve printed on it just fine. I use the 65 lb, the 80 lb, and the 110 lb
