paper and ink

Can anybody tell me what sort of card they stamp on please, when doing there projects please would like to experiment but am on a budget at the moment I just use ordinary card at the moment. Chris over at Sketching stamper made this comment and was very helpful:
I use a coated card to stamp on which has a a very smooth surface, a friend gets it for me so I can't give you a brand I'm afraid but I believe Staples have some, my card is the type printers use to make business cards.
Would like to know what ink people use as well heres another comment Chris said:
For stamping, at the moment I'm using versafine ink it picks up the detail really well and gives a nice crisp image. I don't get on with stazon, I can never get a good image with it. I do sometimes get bleed with the versafine and am going try Memento as I've read this is the best for using with markers.

Thanks Tracy xxx

Hi Tracy, I like to use Stampin up's Whisper White card for stamping on and I use Stazon ink. Hope this helps. Donna x
