The paper is pearlescent and has a gorgeous shine to it. The paper shimmers in the light and has a beautiful soft sparkle. Because of it's thickness, this will work wonderfully as a Panel Card. Just print your text onto a different colored metallic paper (text-weight), vellum or linen paper and layer it over the metallic card stock. Please note that this paper is extra heavy weight cardstock and is not compatible with most home printers.

Please check your printer manual if you are considering printing directly onto the card stock or have it printed at a local print shop.

Paper Color: The paper is double sided (has the Ruby Purple color on both sides)

Paper Finish: Paper is acid-free, recyclable and elemental chlorine free. No metals or foils are used in the production process.

Customer Reviews

  • Gorgeous!
    Reviewer: Crystal Z from Springfield, Illinois (IL)

    This is a very dark shimmery purple--the picture makes it look lighter than it actually is. If you're looking for a rich, deep purple then this is the one! It is gorgeous and exactly what I was looking for, as always a top-notch paper from this company!

  • Wow! Loved it!
    Reviewer: Vicky from Los Angeles, California (CA)

    LOVE LOVE LOVE. I used this as my wedding invitations. and WOW I love it.

  • Fabulous Paper!
    Reviewer: Diana G. from Zion, Illinois (IL)

    I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the quality of the paper & envelopes. I have ordered from other companies online and was disappointed with how flimsy their product was. But yours is fabulous. My daughter's wedding invitations turned out beautiful. My only negative was not with your company but shipping. The day the box arrived, it was just left at my front door and it was pouring outside. I was so nervous opening it as I thought the contents would be soaked. But you packed it so it was protected. Thank you so much! One very happy & satisfied customer from the Planet Zion!

  • Wonderful paper
    Reviewer: LVose from Lexington, Kentucky (KY)

    Bought this based on other reviews which were totally on target! The paper's dark, rich, good depth and reflects light. HIghly recommend.

  • gorgeous!!!
    Reviewer: emily t. from charlotte, North Carolina (NC)

    As always paper and more went above and beyond my expectations. The paper was gorgeous, great quality and I received it so fast!! Love this site!

  • purple ruby metalic card stock
    Reviewer: Regina W from Spring, Texas (TX)

    Could not be happier with this product. After I received the sample, which I received within days, it was just what we needed for our wedding invitations. Best price and prepared very well for shipping.

  • Beautiful Paper
    Reviewer: Precious from Childersburg, Alabama (AL)

    I received my Ruby Purple Metallic Cardstock paper this week and it is so beautiful. I am ready to get started on my wedding invitations. I wasn't sure about the color at first but after seeing it in person I am very well pleased with it. Thank you paper and more. I will be placing a few more orders real soon.

  • Perfect Save the Dates
    Reviewer: Rihana N from Huntsville, Alabama (AL)

    I too, like some of the reviews below, follow the reviews and decided on this ruby metallic paper. I was a little skeptical at first because my wedding color is a deep purple - almost eggplant. The swatch on the monitor is definitely deceiving, as this paper is a deep, rich beautiful purple. My Save the Dates turned out great!

  • Great Heavy Paper
    Reviewer: Kristin P from Lincoln, Nebraska (NE)

    This paper was the perfect color but too heavy -- I ended up ordering the same color in the 80# paper -- worked great!!! Many complements on my wedding programs

  • Ruby Purple Metallic Paper/Metallic White Envelopes
    Reviewer: Dana from Chicago, Illinois (IL)

    I've ordered paper and envelopes from Paper and More several times in the past, and this time was great again! You guys are my "go to" for paper and envelopes whenever I am designing invitations. The Ruby Purple metallic paper is such a great color and quality, and add so much to the design of the invitations. Thanks for great service!

  • What a find!
    Reviewer: Sherri L from N Las Vegas, Nevada (NV)

    I just received my order, first let me say you are super FAST! Second, I LOVE the quality of the product that I have received, I will definitely be ordering from you again as I make custom wedding invitations. What a find for me. The level of customer service provided by Paper and More is top-notch and very refreshing.

  • great quality
    Reviewer: Sara from Peoria, Illinois (IL)

    I didn't read the reviews until after I'd ordered this paper for our wedding programs. The comments that this paper will not print even in a laser printer are true, BUT- you can run it through a copier! WaHoo!! Turned out beautifully.

  • great!
    Reviewer: Leah B from Gaithersburg, Maryland (MD)

    this paper is beautiful and is a dark purple color, perfect for what i needed. and the cutting service saved me a lot of time!

  • 13th Birthday Invitation
    Reviewer: Morrisa R from Annapolis, Maryland (MD)

    This paper enhanced the invitation for the masquerade party!!! Quality was excellent

  • Excellent Quality!
    Reviewer: LaShonda from Columbus, Ohio (OH)

    I ordered this Ruby Purple Cardstock as the backing for my wedding invitations. (I pre-ordered samples before placing my final order.) Let me tell you, the weight and quality of this paper is excellent. I also ordered the text weight paper of the Purple Punch metallic for the inner layer of the invitation. I am thoroughly pleased with the products that I ordered through this company. I had all of my paper products custom cut and that saved so much time! It is worth the extra money! The only thing I can say is, if you are planning on using the adhesive squares to put together the layers of paper, they do not work well on the cardstock/text paper. Not sticky or strong enough at all. I used rubber cement and it turned out great. Overall, I am very pleased with my order and can't wait for my upcoming wedding in May 2011!

  • Thanks Paper and More!
    Reviewer: Jillian from La Crescenta, California (CA)

    I was leery about the coloring on this one until I read the reviews. The color is a beautiful deep purple that looks wonderful on my wedding invitations- thanks!

  • A little deceiving, but great cardstock
    Reviewer: Melissa H. from San Diego, California (CA)

    I ordered a few samples of this thinking that it would be more of a purple based on the color on the screen. It's actually more of a burgundy purple. Not really the color I thought it would be. But that's why we order samples eh? But the cardstock itself is great quality.

  • cards and cardstock
