I did some letterpress business cards over collographs and used 140 lb.
watercolor paper. I forget the manufacturer, but I just choose the one I
liked the texture of at the art store. It is plenty substantial and took
the letterpress well. Most of the printmaking papers I looked at were not
heavy enough.

They came out well. I still have to go down to the print shop and have them
cut on the guillotine though.
