Your Fav. Rubber Stamping Cardstock?

I've had several questions about cardstock lately and I decided to do a comparison of cardstocks.  Rather than just go out and buy every type of cardstock I could find I thought it might be a good idea to see what you all prefer first.  I would hate to waste my money (on both paper and shipping) on something nobody likes anyway.

So let me tell you what I have already then you tell me what other papers you'd like to see compared side by side.  I have the following:

  • Canson Mixed Media Cardstock
  • Crafter's Companion Ultra Smooth Cardstock
  • Georgia Pacific 110lb Cardstock
  • Mattekote by Judikins
  • Neenah 110lb Cardstock
  • Ranger's Stamping Paper

I know Gina K, Papertrey Ink, Simon Says and others make stamping cardstock but what do you use?  I know Stampin' Up sells paper as well but I probably won't be getting any of that because I don't have a representative and doubt anyone would want to sell me just a couple sheets of cardstock.

So, what do you use?  What do you want me to compare?  I'm willing to buy an assortment so my comparison is helpful.  Please post your requests here by March 15th.  At that time I'll place my orders for the papers I need and then start comparing.  

I'm excited...I did a mini comparison and I was surprised :)  Of course I don't want to give anything away so I won't say anymore - LOL!!


  1. All I have ever tried was the Canson Mixed Media cardstock and paper from Strathmore ...I am most interested in the Ranger paper, as they would be more readily available for me. Thanks for doing this!

  2. Can't wait to see this. Would love to see any papers that would be readily available at a Box store.

  3. I like Neenah. Works well with Copic markers also, which is a big plus.

  4. It sounds like you have a great variety.

  5. I have Georgia Pacific 110lb card stock and have used it for a very long time. I like it! Some of the blogs I read are partial to the Neenah. I don't use Copics (way too spendy for my wallet!) so that's a non-issue for me. But I really would like to find a card stock that puts out a clear crisp image each time. Altho...this could be stamper error!!! hee hee!! I would love to see the comparison on this Roni! Thanks!!!!


Thanks for your thoughts and comments!
