We have another section of cards, also in bulk, that we call jewel
tones. Colors like plum, teal, navy blue, burgundy, nutmeg, sand, birch,
desert storm, purple, blueberry, and many others too numerous to list. These
can be mixed and matched within the same price range. These are the standard
A-2 (or 1/2 of an 8.5 x 11 folded over.)
There are linens in white and cream, paneled cards in ivory and
white in 2 sizes, speckled, confetti types and beautiful duplexes. A duplex
is one color on the outside of the card and another lighter color in the
inside for writing.

x 7 cards in a number of colors.
Patterned Papers - We carry 8.5 x 11 size sheets of patterened papers
with all kinds of patterns, like gingham checked, striped, polka dotted, and
lots with different themes on them, like for a guy card or a baby card for
Handmade Papers - These are usually in large parent sheets as we call
them, sized in the neighborhood of 24 x 36. There are metallic, mulberry,
mulberry with gold or silver threads, grasses, the list just goes on and on
and they are brought to you primarily by the division of Printworks called
Dancing Colors. They also come in packages of several co-ordinating sheets
together in smaller sizes.
Vellum Papers - Are these HOT !!! Everyone is enjoying the beauty
and versatility of vellum papers. They are the perfect accent, overlay or
inside lining for your cards as they are transparent and have a crispy feel
to them, can be embossed and even dry embossed. Used often in wedding and
special occasion cards, they are available in colors now, textured with
images like snowflakes, dragonflies, leaves, abstract designs and this list
goes on and on too. They still come in the original transparent, marbled or
Corrugated Papers - Remember when we used to cut up old boxes to get
the corrugated paper effect and use that for a great textured layer? I do.
Now, you can buy corrugated papers in all colors and in tiny wale or medium
wale. Wale being the wavy part on the front side. It even comes in metallic
and it so versatile!
Metallic Papers - This category covers text weight metallic papers to
corrugated, mirror finish card stock and handmade. Lots in metallic these
Cardstock - Many times you need the same color as a card you are
making in a larger size. We have most all of the cardstock we have in bulk,
in full sized sheets of 8.5 x 11. Also, we have many colors that we do not
carry in card and envelope combinations.
Tissue Papers - We don't have a lot, but we do have the basics in
several colors and textures for filling your handstamped bag or for stamping
on and then filling your bag.
Miscellaneous Papers - OK - take all the rest of the paper we have
and they fit into this slot. Bookmarks, gift tags, placecards, paper shapes,
specially designed card formats, like the presto-chango card, accordian
cards, frame cards, ornament hanging cards, you name it and we probably have
them but can't even remember.
