I bought this beautiful blue and aqua card stock for my welcome letters and name cards, and now I'm trying to find a white paper to print the material on.

 

I got a metallic white, that won't go through my printer because it's too thick.

 

Then FI suggest thicker white paper, so I bought "presentation paper" 32lb white glossy paper, and I don't like the way it looks.

 

For all you gals that did the white paper with a color background, where did you get your white paper?

Did you get white metallic paper or cardstock?

 

PaperandMore.com has the regular paper, though it is a little thicker than normal printer paper.

 

I was able to print on cardstock, but had to do it one sheet at a time. It was kind of a pain in the ass, but I was able to set the pages out so there was no smudging.

 

For things like my timeline, etc I used Super Bright white 67lb presentation paper from Office Depot. I really do like the metallic better, especially if your other paper is metallic.

The metallic white I bought was cardstock. But i don't have a manual feed on my printer so I wonder if that was part of the problem.

 

 

The colored paper I have is the linen texture.... now i'm wondering if the metallic would even look good over the linen paper. too many paper choices!

Can you find a linen texture in white? It might be more expensive, but you might want to try some place like Michaels, JoAnn, Hobby Lobby etc. in the scrapbook section.

 

Often they have the paper 50% off so it is about .15 per sheet. Can you get more than one per page?

 

On my invites I had a metallic petalfold, texture linen backing and metallic invite. I liked the way they came out.

i tried the linen over linen at the store, but it seemed... heavy. if that makes sense.

 

maybe if i get linen text paper it would work out better.

 

you don't happen to have a picure of your invites do you?
