    Shay, if you are near a office depot or staples, etc. they should have a section of cardstock paper in single reems that will have weights on the reems you'll see 60lbs, 80lb, 110lb etc

      That is awesome! Thank you! I feel like such a geek...but...hey! This is all so new to me!!! LOL

      I'll go scope out the Bureau en Gros (Staples) and see if they can hook me up with some nice Chocolate or Sage colored 110 lb paper!

        don't feel like a geek, i think i walked around the store at least 2 times before i stumbled on the cardstock.

            I'm not sure what you mean when you say you can't work on it in PowerPoint. Do you not have the software? If that's the case, do you have a friend that does?

            You should just be able to open the file and move, recolor, add stuff, etc.

              no, its not working, when i click on the templates that you have so generously posted it comes up in a slide show format..im not able to do anything to the file, it just lets me view it..and close it. How would I go about getting the most up-to date software? or maybe is my computer opening it with the wrong software??
              I was wondering why everyone seemed to be able to use it! I just thought i was missing something!!

I took the 110 lb paper to kinkos to print out my folders.

                  To answer the q... using the 110lb paper for the folder and 80lb for the boarding pass (I had 3 pages that printed out on 1 sheet of paper) and the envelope that used the same 80lb paper, it weighed exactly 1 oz, so I only used a $0.42 stamp... using the 110lb may have pushed it over and costed more in stamps, idunno, maybe becks can say.

                  I would have prefered to use the 110lb all around. Its nice and thick. I like it. I will use that for my invites.

                  I think the original q was what "weight" means... Its just the thickness of the paper. I think 110lb is hardcore thick. Thicker than regular scrapbooking cardstock. 80lb is not exactly really thick, but its good enough. Not recommended for invites(unless you back it or something)!!! Regular printer paper is 20lb or 24lb.

                  THANK YOU for posting all of this!!! I have been wondering which lb paper to use!!!!!!
