Bazzill Basics Paper is synonymous with a quality of cardstock like no other. It comes in hundreds of colors and many textures, and is a weighted paper that can withstand any techniques that a scrapbooker can throw at it. It does not tear easily when using distress tools, the smooth texture variety does not bleed when using alcohol markers and all of the paper even works beautifully when using watercolors or mist sprays.
Douglas and Marti Jones began Bazzill Basics Paper in 1999 in Mesa, Arizona. The name Bazzill, which rhymes with razzle, was named after Doug’s grandfather. Marti was looking for a unique, acid-free cardstock to stock in the local store she owned, Scrapbooks, Etc. She turned to her husband Doug, the owner of an engraving company that had connections with paper manufacturers, to help her find the product she wanted. At first Doug ordered the paper and cut it into manageable scrapbook sizes. Then other stores wanted this unique product as well and Bazzill Basics was born.
