Glossy magazine paper!
I need to buy the same kind of paper that typical, nicely-put together magazines use, within the next 2 days.

As a birthday present for my girlfriend, I am recreating her favorite magazine (DWELL) by laying out pages in Quark/PS, except making all the articles about items in her life.
Though I'm using a different size of paper than the original publication (plain 8.5x11"), I would like to use the same kind of paper this magazine uses because I like the feel, the glossy coating, and how what's printed on the other side doesn't bleed through so much. I am just going to use some cardstock I had around my work for the covers.
So far, all I know is I that it needs to be "glossy," very light weight, and double sided. I've had little luck at Staples or looking through web-sites/Google for what I need. I don't need hundreds of sheets, just 15-20. I will be printing on them using my work's high end Gestetner.
