Hello Letterpress fanatics!!

I live in NY and I’m looking for a good place to buy paper. I’m trying to get some companies to send me samples, but I’d love to go to the store to touch and see what is out there. I live on Long Island—need to take a 45 min train into NYC, no biggie, but if anyone knows of any good paper places on the Island let me know! Thanks! :)

Those seem like great suggestions. Next time you’re in New York City, you should definitely make the trip to New York Central on Third Avenue (at 11th). Fantastic paper selection and you can buy by the sheet.
