I love to scrapbook but it is an expensive hobby so I am always on the lookout for products I can use as an alternative to the ones sold in the craft store. One of the items I have found that does just this is Hammermill cover stock paper which I purchased to use for printing my journaling and other items for my scrapbook pages.
Hammermill cover stock is a 65 lb. weight paper that is heavier than regular computer paper and lighter than a traditional card stock. The package I have contains 125 sheets of 8.5 X 11 cover stock paper in 5 different colors. This collection is called the brights collection and contains red, green, yellow, purple and a turquoise blue and there are 25 sheets of each color. The paper is acid free so it is safe to use for craft projects and scrapbooks, contains 20% post consumer recycled content and works for both ink jet and laser printers.
The package of 125 sheets cost me only $3.00 so at less than 3 cents a sheet, mistakes are not that big of a deal. I have gotten crisp and clear results every time I have printed on the paper so far and I am very pleased with the results.
