I'm new to the list and may violate some sort of protocol, forgive me if I do.
Teton is made by Simpson Paper Co., headquarters in San Francisco
415-391-8140. They wouldn't sell it from the headquarters of course but
could probably tell you where to get it locally. Teton is a No. 1 text
paper or No. 1 cover stock. You would most likely want the cover stock to
write on without show through. Text and cover come in a variety of nice
colors. A typical size is 20 x 26 inches.
Office supply stores also sell "ledger" paper in shades of buff or light
green or white (like bond paper but heavier and stiffer). A standard size
is 17 x 22 and it is usually available in 24 lb., 28 lb., and 32 lb. The
last would probably be best for no show through.
Hope this is helpful.
