Anyone have a good source for purchasing butcher / Pattern paper for plotters? Need something thick.

Thanks

I use a brown paper with lines on it. 48" wide and fairly thick. I get it from NEI Sign Supplies in Cinn. Ohio.800.582.9024

Thanks guys,

I normally use 24" white butcher paper for simple patterns, but they stopped carrying 24" and now it's 20" & 18" at Smart and Final, and it's 500 to 1000 yrds for $36.

For wall sign patterns I use the awesome Westrim brown paper with the grid.

But right now just looking for 24" white, simple, thick, and inexpensive.

I've been looking for the same thing. Local sign supply sells some expensive (~15c/sqft) heavy white papers, the brown lined paper (10c/sqft), and some 20lb bond white paper (6c/sqft).

The best (simple, available, seemed to be the thickest) that I had found was 40lb white butcher paper. I just bought a roll from Staples, 48" x 1000', $60, free shipping. = 1.5c/sqft. THey hooked me with a 23%-off-if-you-buy-it-in-the-next-20-minutes deal. I'll let you know in a week how it holds up to hot glass.

Your local paper and packaging supply should have many weights, colors and sizes of rolls to fit your needs. This is really not a sign supply item.

That roll of 40# butcher paper arrived. It's pretty much your standard butcher paper. I was hoping that since there's 20# and 40# butcher paper, this stuff would be notably thicker.

I called around to three or four paper & packaging co's. None of them carry anything thicker than 40# butcher paper, in terms of a roll paper that is white.

It seems like "butcher paper" as a category taps out at 40lb. Is there another common term for "thick white paper on a roll"?
