I guess what I'd like to know is, what weight is the card stock used in Hallmark or American Greeting cards? I've purchased some packages labeled card stock and they are barely heavier than 24 pound typing paper. I'd like something heavier. Thanks for your help!
What weight card stock should I use for greeting cards if I want them to be sturdy?
Hallmark sells a package of blank greeting cards that's 85 lbs. You can buy it at Hallmark or from various stores online.

Reply:My wife always bought paper that was in the 100# range. Nice sturdy paper.
