What type of paper should I use to print tuckboxes? I have been searching the geek to see if I can find a walkthrough, but can't seem to find one.

I use a 65 lb bright white cover. It worked great for me.I got mine from office max. 80 lb is way to heavy to fold. You might want to just go to a local copy shop and get a couple sheets to try. Good luck.

The paper industry uses different lbs for weight scale. I'm not sure how they do it so a 110 card stock could be the same as a 65 pound cover.

This is what I use also. I score my lines before I fold.
