I really want to try using some of the free patterns on the Burda sites that you print out but I dont want to use regular (i.e. thick) paper. What do you guys use? Is there a thinner paper I can buy? Or do I just use the regular kind?

I just use regular copier\printer type paper.  We use so much we bought an entire box! 

Be sure to check some websites to see what size paper they are using - some use a European size A4 paper, which is a bit more difficult to find and will really affect the outcome of your pattern size if you don't use it!

i too want to print on tissue paper, i REALLY don't like using hard printer paper. i guess you can always print it out and trace it using pattern paper.

that's funny- I've traced tissue paper patterns on to butcher paper just because I hate tissue Smiley

Usually the cheaper varieties of printer paper will be thinner.  You can print on things like vellum, but that would get verrry expensive.  Anything thinner would probably have a hard time feeding through your printer.  You could always print and then trace onto your desired medium.  I'm tracing all the pieces of the BurdaStyle jacket (Stella) I'm making just for my own sanity -- there are a lot of extra markings with all the little triangles to align the pages when you tape them together, plus I will be adding my own marks and cutting things apart to do fitting adjustments.
