Please could anyone recommend where to buy good quality craft paper. I need plain sheets or rolls. Ie: black, white, cream, green, red, baby blue and pink maybe also copper. I have looked on Etsy ( the Kraft ones ) but I have no idea on the quality and this would be my first time crafting with it. So any recommendations would be sooooo helpful. Huge thanks to all that answer. I will be back in a day or so for any updates. x x x

    I used to buy most of my card from the Paper Mill when they had several shops in outlet centres. Now the shops have all closed but I see they do mail order- looks like even the Kendal shop has gone.........

    The quality of the card / paper was good but I don't know about prices- now- especially as I assume there are post & packing charges.

    just cut & pasted this from their web pages:
    'If you’re not sure which of our paper and card products to pick, we also have our sample range, which allow you to select 10 samples from our great range for just £1 and no additional shipping cost.'
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    What does good quality mean to you and what craft do you want to do with it?  Origami wants different characteristics than lino printing, of course.  There are still shops where you can buy by the sheet and see exactly what you want - art shops, book binding shops - eg Shepherds in London.
