i ordered the 120lbs paper, because i have a Spellbinders die cut machine. the new dies are beautiful and have many small lines to clear way. i watched he vidieos on u tube the demonstrators said a heavy weight paper would cut better. Your paper is excellent. Also the sample pacs are wonderful chance to sample the papers you supply, I am pleased with my order and the fine service I received from LCI. thanks
Thick cardstock to create tags
Hi there, I'm looking for a thick cardstock to create tags, I get confused about the weight and how to tell the thickness, as I can not buy thick cardstock at any local craft store. Thank you!

To start, I would like to direct you to more information on paper weight explanation helpful. There is a text and a video version on this page: The 120 lb card stock you are looking at is extremely thick and heavy; like a cardboard. I believe it would be too thick for a tag. To give you a general idea/comparison, a tag in a retail store is typically a 60-80lb cover. Will you be printing on this card stock? If so, you will also have to consider the maximum weight your printer will handle (again, typically 60-80 for most home printers).
