    I normally buy 180 gsm card, from where ever is the cheapest. It usually comes in reams of 250.

    Thicker card I use cereal packets or from bins at work.

    Thinner paper I use standard photocopy paper 80/90 gsm

    Hope the above hels

    Tim

    Maybe you want to go out if possible to your stationer or office supply house to get a feel for what will suit you.

    Its very difficult to buy stuff like this online (well not to purchase obviously) without knowing exactly what your getting.

    For example you may find just the right weight but when you sit down and start cutting you find it delaminates easily.
