Simply the best

You can't go wrong with Red River Paper. I've not had any problems with any of the different types I've purchased. Currently, I'm facinated with Polar Pearl Metallic. Unlike other metallic paper's I've used it does not have the "artifical metal" look about it plus the price keeps you coming back.
