Re: [BKARTS] colored 11x17 text weight paper

We've had similar problems on occasion. Our solution has been to go to a friendly local job printer, look through what he has available, and have him cut to size and sell us just what blank paper we need; works well for us. -tb

I'm looking for a source of the subject paper. I would like something other than plain white and not cover stock. I went to Paper Zone this weekend, and they had Astrobright Green (like a deep kelly green) and three shades of a Royal brand granite-ish style (lavender, cream, and white). I liked this latter paper, but one ream was $45. I don't need a whole ream, so this was more than I wanted to pay for my project. I checked several office supply stores, but they only had plain or bright white.

So I guess more specifically, I'm looking for a source of 11x17 text weight paper that either I can buy individual sheets of or a cheaper ream. The Astrobright Green was only $17, but it was just too dark to print on.

Thanks for your help,
