Hi Ladies,
I am currently working on my Save the Dates and Invitations for my wedding.  I have them designed but I am having problems finding paper.

Our colors are sand and tangelo but I am having problems finding metallic paper in tangelo (medium orange) for the boarding pass Save the Dates.

Also I love the texture of linen paper but I would like to be able to print directly on it.  What types of linen paper can I put in my inkjet printer?  I have read that some of them are too glossy to print on with an inkjet printer.

I am putting the inspiration pictures that I am trying to recreate below.  Thanks for all the help!  Carla Wink

That's an excellent question, that I don't have an answer to. I'm looking for large 6"X6" or larger cardstock & envelopes for my Xmas cards. I found that simplypaperandenvelopes dot com has some stuff, but I've never heard of them before, and am not sure if they're reputable or not. Has anyone dealt with them before?

Please note I haven't purchased anything from these places before! I'm looking for assorted stuff, so I haven't really checked the individual colours, but here's what I found.

 However, I did find that most of them ended up being around 30cents a sheet.

Depending on what you get, 30-45cents a sheet.

A wide selection of stuff, anywhere from 16-45cents a sheet.  They've got a lot of the bright colours, so you might find it here...

And of course your local arts/crafts stores.

WE HAVE A WINNER!!!  I'm in Canada so I'm going with Staples & Office Depot, at max $20 for 250 sheets of heavy cardstock.  (8cents a sheet!)  So, if you're not in the Great White North just check out your local office supply store.  If they don't have your colour, keep looking, cuz Staples doesn't have the bright colours you and I are looking for.  =)  Congratulations on your wedding, and good luck!
