Cardstock!

Hi Ladies! 

I am making my own invites and all but can't find the cardstock I am picturing. I want a white cardstock that has a litttttle bit of a shimmer to it. Any thoughts or ideas on where to get cardstock?

    check paper-source. They have some neat shimmery paper. Just remember you have to use a laser printer to print on that type of paper (which I didn't know when I started on my invitations). Because the of the shimmer on the paper, the ink (like from an inkjet printer) won't sink into the paper. Good luck on your invitations!

    I used metallic paper from there when making my cousins invites a couple years ago.  They sell it in packs of 10 I beleive.  I took the invites to FedExKinkos to be printed.

    There's also an Archiver's off of Barry Road and Ambassador Drive in Kansas City, if that's any closer for you.

    Great Thanks! barry and Ambassador is right down the road so I will definitely  check them out this weekend! 

    I am going the Kinkos route and having them print what I created..(my printer is archaic!) 

    Thanks for the suggestions!
