When this swatch deck first hit my hands, I was a little disappointed they weren't bolted together to keep the cards together and allow me to fan out the deck. But being able to pull out your selections of paper is very very helpful. Identifying each swatch is a breeze as Cards and Pockets has a consistent design style on each card identifying the name of the paper. I can't tell you how many times I have bought paper from Paper Source only to forget the name of the paper later on, and then having to do the work of trying to re-identify the paper. If you want a super wide selection of paper, ignore Paper Source. Cards and Pockets is your source.
