Smoothest paper to use for linocut

Can anyone recommend a nice smooth paper for linocut jplease? I'm using black Stonehenge at the moment, which is nice paper, but I'm not getting the results I want. I have some cheap black shiny craft paper which is working better for me.

If anyone could recommend a smooth black, or if there isn't one then just smooth in general.

I have to buy everything mail order, so unfortunately I can't nip into a shop to have a look...

Hi, sorry I didn't see your question.

There's a good discussion in this thread (click link) about papers that might be helpful.

Re: Smoothest paper to use for linocut

for linocut relief I found when I printed light colour ink on a thin dark colour of mulberry paper it left a clean crisp inked line. I sourced a few sheets of black a while back from this place. They ship worldwide. The product is good quality. I have ordered many times from this retailer.
It is pricey for a single sheet, and then the cost of shipping would have to be added. If you ordering from outside Canada might be less if your currency is greater in value than the Canadian dollar.
you might look into other retailers and compare similar product and pricing
good luck
