Paper/ink suggestions?

My letterpress arrives today! I’m a newbie, and have signed up for a class the first weekend in May at The Arm in Brooklyn, NY. Looking forward to it… I was wondering though if anyone could recommend paper and ink supplies? I would like to order some so I’ll have materials to learn and practice with. I’m from Long Island and am not too sure of an art material store that would have letterpress supplies- I’m thinking I will have to order online and it would be nice to have the materials in hand after completion of my class… or does anyone know of a store in the city? …Thanks!
