I usually buy a pack of Xerox Bright White cardstock at an office supply store -- it lasts forever and it's BRIGHT WHITE, which I need... I can't stand dull white on my layouts.

So I'm down to my last few sheets, and go to buy another pack... and I can't find it anywhere! Not in the store, not online... I can find Wausau Bright White cardstock, but the few reviews I've read say it doesn't even compare to the Xerox brand in whiteness.

So to the Peas I go: if you're a stickler for BRIGHT WHITE cardstock, what do you use? TIA!

I behold you riding with my love throughout the town,
And I bite my thumb at you.
Methinks the ducats in my purse are sorely lacking,
And I bite my thumb at you
And at her, too.
Were I but richer, I would be her suitor
Is this not a patent fact?
Though it pains me to the quick, I will salute her still
The aforementioned way: I bite my thumb.

Timely post: I just found a 250-sheet pack of Xpedit Bright White cover in the back of my closet!

I bought it on a trip to the Xpedit store while I was an SU demo. Had totally forgotten about it. The talk at the time was that it was a good, cheaper bulk substitute for the SU white.

I'm sure I compared and contrasted like crazy before buying it. So yeah -- I'd recommend it.

Thanks for the recommendations -- I'm googling them all!

And MerryMom -- the link you posted is for "color gloss" cardstock... any idea what that means? Is it more like photo paper?

Linked below is very thick, very white, very cost effective cardstock (supporting a small business to boot!).

It's not photo paper, it's a higher gloss cardstock.

SU! for me. When I first got into stamping, I did a test on every kind of white cs I had (which had to be a dozen types). I was AMAZED at how much better the SU! cs performed with stamps. That surface is unbelievably smooth. I realize you're talking about general purpose scrapping not especially stamping, but my test convinced me SU! was THE cs I wanted on hand.

SU all the way! I have some that I picked up from Marco's Paper, but I don't like it a much.
