    I have good paper stock.

    I also have stark white or ivory.

    Any preferences?

    I like ivory. I just think it looks better. But I don't think it matters a great deal.

    So long as what you've got written on it isn't worthy of the cylinder file, it shouldn't matter.

    Some texts will tell you to use ivory, but employers really don't sit there and inspect what kind of paper you use. As long as it's written in correct format and grammer, you'll be fine.

    Grammer and speling is important.

    I don't care in the least. I tend to look at what's on it and hire accordingly. just be sure it's professional and you're fine.

    I have some good ivory paper, but it seems like I haven't used it in ages--everyone just wants email.

    I'd go with eggshell with Romalian type. Add a watermark if you can.

    No ivory in the house. Only white, with watermarks.

    I thank I'll be fine.

    The parchment/ivory thing is done to death. Personally, I think it's corny.
