The choice of buying paper sometimes is considered the cheaper alternative, in terms of money spent, however in terms of effort and time on your part, and possible your friends and family it can take a toll. Besides, you need to purchase more items to achieve a professional look, such as box cutters or even paper cutter (guillotine), to paper folders, cutting mats, and creasing equipment, which is available at stationery stores.
