|Posted: 12/27/2012 9:47:46 AM|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 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?

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.
