    I restore vintage alarm clocks and use photo editing to restore the dials. I print on an HP 452DW laser printer. I like to print on 90lb. or close to it, card stock. I've tried the 110lb. Staples branded Ivory, but it's too yellow. I'm looking for advice on a more Natural color stock, around 90lb. and good for laser printer use. Thanks for the help.

    When I had to replace this Roman Numerical clock face, I used self-Adhesive paper and laminate it with a Matte film, then trim it to size to apply, if you have problems on any card stock then try using heavier paper, from an art shop...

    As The Hat said, try looking in an art store - not just in the art supply section, but also check out the scrapbooking section.

    Also, have you tried looking at Southworth business/resumé papers? Unfortunately I don't think they make one over 65 lbs but the Ivory might be a better tone.
