A few posts ago I compared Stampin Up's Ultrasmooth Paper to Beckett's Expression Cardstock #80. After that post, I mentioned that a fellow stamper had asked me if I had compared Georgia Pacific. I had not because I did not have the paper. So, Liz (Redapron on splitcoaststampers) sent me 5 sheets! In this case, I stamped each paper with the same stamp and the same ink -- Classic Ink Night of Navy from Stampin Up (a dye ink). In terms of how the paper looks -- the SU and Beckett's look virtually identical and have the same smooth finish -- you can literally run your hand over it and feel how smooth they are. The Georgia Pacific does not have that smooth finish, and has a very slightly grayer tint to it. The Georgia Pacific did not take the dye as well as the other two papers. I think the SU paper took the dye the best, but only by a smidgeon. (Note: daylight was coming in closer to the GP paper when I took the picture). However, there are two advantages to the Georgia Pacific -- it is cheaper. I'm not sure by how much, but Liz indicated that it was much cheaper. Also, it makes a nicer base for the card -- it is stiffer than the other two papers and stands up better. Another stamper commented in my original post that she buys the Beckett Expressions from Kelly Paper for much less than what I paid at Marco's Paper. Unfortunately, I do not live near a Kelly Paper shop! Within reason (ha!), I'm a big believer in buying top quality supplies. I figure with all the time I spend thinking, writing, and reading about stamping, and then, of course, actually stamping, I might as well invest in the best. In this case, I will stick with Beckett's Expression (or SU's if there is a good promotion going on tempting me!).
