I love Staples. I have their Reward card and it has saved me money. I watch their weekly flyers which are now online. I recycle my ink cartridges there and receive ink rewards. Five cartridges gives me $15 and there are times when they have double rewards. You can't go wrong.
I have just learned about the double-sided brochure paper. I comes in glossy and matte. I am already using it on my cards. I have noticed that my cards are printing with the paper curling a bit (too much ink). I used the settings recommended on the paper inside the box. I have since tried using a lower setting on my printer (something called fast normal). I compared the results and one can hardly tell the difference in the printing quality of normal print setting. So one may have to play around and see what works for their printer.
I use Scrapbook Factory software for my projects. Most of the time I design from scratch which you can do using this software as well as using their templates etc. I find the software very easy to use. Version 5 is the latest update to their software. I had problems with installing version 5, so I am using version 4.
I found these envelopes at WalMart. They are great for my cards.
Depending upon what you create, you will sooner or later need a trimmer. I found this one at WalMart, but they can be found at many art n craft stores.
I like this glue. I have used it on many projects to include vellum. Use sparingly and it goes a long way.
This ink is very useful. So far it is the only ink I have used. Be sure to protect your work area as you do not want any ink on your countertops etc.
For my scrapbook pages, I use Royal Brites. I buy this at Sam's Club. You can only print on one side of the paper, but it is nice and sturdy. I also use it to print out 8.5x11 photos.
