GREETINGS CARD PAPER?

Anyone know of available greetings card paper (card) which is heavy weight like proper pre-printed cards?

I am currently using an HP product which is 210gsm but this is really too flimsy...it's got to be at least 270gsm or more.


Cheers.

Staples stock the weight of card you are after, along with several other grades as well. They do a pack of 500 sheets in 5 different colours, forget the price now but not expensive, certainly less than a tenner. j.

W H Smith used to sell a pack of Greeting Card Paper which included envelopes. The paper was pre-scored for easy folding. The paper was 180gsm and was double sided coated inkjet and came in a pack of 20 cards and envelopes. Its worth checking if they still sell it.Personally I now use Kodak Double sided Glossy Picture Paper. This is 190gsm and makes very nice cards. You can get it in packs of 75 sheets. PC World had it on Special Offer a couple of weeks ago for about £11.99. Its also very good for your Photos. Just a tip, if you use this use the setting on your printer for Photo Quality Glossy Film (Epson). You won't notice any difference in print quality but you will save about 25% ink.

The thing is folks is that I have HP Greetings Card paper (card) which is 210gsm & is thicker than any mentioned so far.

210gsm is still no where as thick as proper over the counter pre-printed cards & hence the end result tends to be a tad flimsy & doesn't always stand up properly.
