Each year I create note cards as Christmas gifts for my neighbors using photos of flowers, birds and butterflies taken in their beautiful gardens. I have used many brands and types of card stock but recently tried Red River Polar Matte, based on so many positive reviews. The results were outstanding and I could not be more pleased. The colors were the brightest ever and the photos in some cases looked almost three-dimensional. Thanks Red River for such high quality paper. My neighbors love the cards.
