I ordered this for wedding invites. I had made a mock up for the bride using the paper at Michaels. That paper cost $1.99 per piece so since I needed to make over 100 invites i looked elsewhere. This was the cheapest paper i could find. The color is better than Michaels being a more true gold with not a yellowish tint. The weight is slightly less than my mock up but with all of the layers that are going on top I dont think that will be a problem. I think this was the best solution for my needs!
