It’s that time again...
I need craft paper.
Uline can suckmydick. drymounting trump trash.
I tried Amazon, but it was too thin... I doubled it up and now it’s gone.
I’m not sure of paper weight specifics...
I’m looking for proper thick craft paper.
Anyone have a suggestion or a referral?
Thank you

Thanks guys...
I’m looking for the thick stuff.
Thin craft is pointless.
I go to target all the time.
Will check it out, although I’m looking for a good amount.
Been mailing a ton of Malleus, and plan to list a ton of prints ne t month through Dec.

Been using this stuff for years from bags unlimited. Thick enough for prints and wrapping boxes too (several sizes available). And it's a huge roll with free shipping. 24" x 1065" --- 50lbs --- $42.14

I have used this a lot, it's thick and I cut it to fit whatever length tube I happen to be using. Gets a bit curly towards the end of the roll tho.

I've used this exact item for crafting to wrapping prints and have had no problems:

Looks like this is similar ## and cheaper for a 2 pack:

I ordered some of that exact 40# stuff in the past and returned it because I thought it felt too thin. Good to know people have used it with good results, though.

I can only attest to the first product, but it has fit the bill for sure. I'd rate it as thicker than the craft McCarthy uses, close to the craft Obey uses, and probably a tad thinner than Mondo.
