Heavy duty paper for album
(Little Rock, AR)
An album with chipboard pages
I have a 3 ring album with 9" X 11" pages. The pages are white and the photos are put directly on them. Where can I find paper that I can use to make more pages?************************
Thanks for asking for some information about your album pages.
Now about your request. It really depends how thick you want your album pages to be. I have made them from ordinary acid and lignin free cardstock and I buy most of mine from Stampin' Up!
I would select from Whisper White, Confetti White or even Shimmer White cardstock if I wanted an album with white pages in it, or I would choose Basic Black if I wanted black pages. You can also sandwich two pieces of cardstock together with adhesives
if you want a thicker, sturdier page.
As you live in the USA, you can search for a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator nearest you by going to the Stampin' Up! website
and clicking on 'find a demonstrator'. You may find the demonstrator will be able to either visit you or send you some small samples of the cardstock and then help you with an order.
If you want heavier paper, I suggest you find a professional printer (there will be a printing shop or store in your area, I hope) and go to them with your album. They can assess the weight of the pages you have and help you find a similar product to use as your pages.
Be sure to tell the printer you want to purchase acid and lignin free paper
that is archival quality though, if you want your photos to last.
I hope this information will help. Let me know how things turn out for you.
It would also be great to see a page or two from your album when you are ready to share so I hope you come back to PaperCraftCentral.com to do that too :)
