Cardstock, also known as cover stock, is a paper that is thicker and more durable than standard writing or copy paper.

It comes in various weights, colours, and finishes, and is often used for Business Cards, Postcards, Greeting Cards, and other printing needs where a sturdier, more robust material is desired.

Its weight and sturdiness make it a popular choice for both professional and craft applications.
