Cardstock Warehouse™ paper colors are so beautiful, you'll want to collect them all!

Paper color is all a matter of personal preference, style, theme and occasion. Ink color, ink absorption and paper bleed are also important considerations when printing and applying ink to paper. Multi-layered cards create a visually pleasing look with options for contrasting color or monochromatic color themes.

Due to the relative inconsistencies of various display monitors, the paper colors you see on your screen may not be a completely accurate reproduction of the actual product. We strive to make our colors as accurate as possible, but screen images are intended as a guide only. We recommend you purchase a sample to confirm your color choice prior to purchase, or our Professional Swatch Deck which contains a sample of all of our papers.

When using the ZOOM feature, you are seeing a magnification of the paper. Characteristics such as fibers, specks, shives, and texture appear extremely magnified, as if looking through a magnifying glass, and will appear much larger and more pronounced than in real-life.
