Yes i know there are alot of threads but they just dont get my questions.

1) How Flexible is Cardstock? Will it bend like Paper?

2) Where is a place that i can get lots of cardstock for cheap?

3) Any examples of cardstock in household items?(notebooks, pens ect.)

4) Would cardstock work on a regular household paper because my printer likes to make the paper bend in the middle can i use this for cardstock?

5) Can i use regular paper to make my armor?

6) Could i Reinforce regular paper without warping it?

Thanks for answering...if you do.

Cardstock is pretty much thick paper. It can go through your printer fine. Just get 110 lb at walmart. It's like 150 sheets for $5.

If you want decent armor, use cardstock.

1) Yes

2) Wal Mart

3) not sure

4) Yes

5) It's possible, but I STRONGLY suggest cardstock. Paper will bend and not turn out good at all.

6) You need to line regular paper with cardboard before resining it.

Just ask if you need anything else

I resined my entire helmet at once with no reinforcement and it didn't warp at all.

Just put the helmet on a long box that you can stand upright, or a roll of paper towels, like their wearing it.
