Paper

Where do y'all order your paper/blank notecards/envelopes/etc? Wondering if anyone has a favorite supplier that they would recommend?

Thanks!

I have a few! http://www.paper-source.com/ is one of my favorites.

If I need just plain white blanks sometimes I'll pick up a pack of 50 with a 50% off coupon at Michaels. If they bleed, I either spray with a little fixative or use a decorative paper as a background and then layer the calligraphy on top. But sometimes I'll scan and then print my calligraphy so usually they go through the printer fine (great, quick gifts with the person's name on it!).

http://www.envelopes.com/ is another good one if I am looking for something specific.

I used to order from here quite a bit: http://www.jampaper.com/.

I hope other people chime in as there must be some other good resources I don't know about!

Hi Emily,
So nice to meet you.
I also use Michael's for their bulk cards and envelopes.
If I have time I order practice paper from Paper and Ink Arts.  I also get good quality laser printer paper, good practice lined paper and quadrille/graph paper from Office Depot and Staples.  You just have to make sure they're the best quality or they may tend to bleed.  I hope this helps.
Love,
Roseann
