I just got my Cricut Expression yesterday (and love it already)! My question is what is the best weight cardstock to use so that your shapes/letters don't come out sort of floppy? I want them to hold their shape better if you know what I mean, especially smaller cuts.BigGrin

WM has a 110 lb. "cardstock". This is the cheapest and being white it gives you the opportunity to do some practicing as the cost is minimal' I use this also for my actual card as it is a great weight to add to.

Card stocks have alot of different weights but I find if I put my cricut on the slowest speed it helps not to distort the letters even the smallers ones. Hope this helps.

Laugh The BEST cardstock for letters and small detailed things is "STAMPN UP"!!!!!!! cuts nicely and very sturdy!!! I only use Stampn Up!!!!
