Butcher Paper/Bulletin Board paper

Where does everyone get their butcher paper/bulletin board paper from? Everything is so expensive! I don't want to use wrapping paper because the students have difficulty focusing and don't want something too distracting. I saw plain white paper and that wasn't too expensive. Anyone else use white paper?

My school provides butcher paper in a variety of colors, but I usually buy my own at Lakeshore because I like their fadeless one.

Our school supplies the paper, however, Discount School Supply is reasonably priced. One year I used fabric that I found on sale. It worked out nicely and didn't show all the tack/staple holes.

Inexpensive flat white sheets? Fabric works great and I have purchased flat twin sheets at Walmart for $5 on sale. I covered all my bulletin boards in my room with 2 sheets and they have lasted for 3 years. I chose black and use bright colored solid borders. I love it! AND they have not faded a bit! They still look great.

Could anyone send me a picture of their classroom bulletin boards with fabric or white paper?

I have used rolls of kraft paper. Found it at Walmart by the mailing things. You can use it to wrap boxes to mail. Loved the color and I could use it all year without changing it.

You might try going to a newspaper office where they print the papers and ask for some roll ends, which have yards of blank paper left on them. I have done this for years, and the guys are happy to pack them into your car. Sometimes the office charges $2-3 for a roll. The quality of paper (unprinted) is not as heavy as butcher paper, but is great for bulletin boards, some painting, covering tables, and paper sculptures. Also it is fantastic for paper mache, because it has no ink to stain everything black! When you use up the roll, you'll have a heavy cardboard tube to make something else with. 100% recyclable!

My school has rolls of it on carts.

My mom is a teacher and she has always used construction paper. Would you use that? It's more stapling and you can definitely see the lines from the separate sheets, but it is much easier to work with, in my opinion. Plus, your school might have construction paper for you to use, and if they don't, it's relatively inexpensive. Dollar Tree usually has it.

I ended up buying a small red roll of it at AC Moore. It was 8.99 then I had a 50% off coupon so it worked out well. I'm going to get a white roll soon.

I purchased cheap flat sheets (queen/king size gives more bang for your buck) and they still look great. Some of our teachers painted the cork on the bulletin board which eliminates the need for covering them at all.
