After my first visit to sydney beaumont I saw a lot of stocks I wanted to experiment with. I couldn't find any coated card that have a really shiny finish or was wipe proof. So I made the conscious decision to buy some vinyl and apply to some card for cover stock.
I brought 3 and a half meter rolls in red, orange and yellow for each publication.
All together the stock cost me £5 which I think was quite reasonable for what I needed.
