Printer paper supplier for 43 lb paper.

I am printing 600 "Im Moving.." change of address postcards with computer printed addresses from a client list. You might think this would be fun, right?

It turns out that I need 43 lb paper to meet the USPS requirements for .007 inch thickness for that size of card. The local office/computer supply stores only carry 20#, 32#, 67#, 110#, etc.

I bought the 67# but it got stuck in the printer. It turns out that the small HP Laser printers will only print up to 43 lb paper.

I spent an hour on the net but was not able to locate what I need. I saw a site with some really expensive HP 43#, but I was hoping to buy it locally for less, under a generic name.

I doubt most folks here have ever worried about paper weight, but you never know. Staples did not carry 43 lb paper, by the way.
