Excuse the newbie question  Smiley...I would like to make some blank books/journals that are filled with some nice art-type paper.  I would like to make fairly thick books and will need quite a bit of paper.  Does anyone know where I can get a fairly good deal by purchasing a larger amount of paper?

You can probably locate quite a few sources online but paper is heavy so shipping it won't be cheap. If you have an Xpedex store in your area, they are a paper supplier that supplies paper to printing shops and carry a large variety of papers. While they won't specifically have "art paper" they will have a large selection of heavyweight cardstock. You might also try an art supply store. If you can buy large size pads, you can bring them to a print shop that should be able to cut them down to a smaller size, allowing you to get a stack of paper from one pad.

I second the buying art pads and cutting them down.  You can even do the cutting yourself, it is just more tedious/time consuming.  I try and wait until I have a coupon/there is a sale on sketchbooks/large art pads and then buy several and cut them up to make books.  Frequently the back of the pad is even heavy enough board to use as book board (or for other crafts).

I'm a newbie here, too, and just starting to research this myself. Have you looked into buying paper samplers? I found one blogger talking about them here...

Back when I was a graphic designer, we used to be able to order blank books of whatever size and paper (within reason) we wanted from actual paper mills (i.e. Neenah, Mohawk, Wausau). I don't know if you can still do this, but I think I'll try to find out!
