Half Legal Sized Zines -- Basic Supplies?

So.  I'm writing and mocking up my first zine, thinking about logistics, supplies, etc.

For various reasons, I'm going with half legal size.  But I'm now having a few problems with basic supplies (and I now see why people in the USA mostly make half letter-sized zines).

I am specifically seeking:

  • legal size paper in any colo(u)r other than white.  (I'm specifically after some a kind of off-yellow but any colour that takes print well would work.  I'm hoping to use this a pull-out centre section.)
  • legal size cardstock for my covers.  (Again, something other than white that takes print well.)
  • envelopes (10.5" x 7.5" seems to be the closest I can get in size to my 8.5" x 7" booklet).

I'm not taking crazy pills, am I?  These things are genuinely quite difficult to come by?  I've tried Staples, Office Depot, and even some high end paper supplies stores but had little success.

I feel a little pitiful for asking such a basic set of questions.  (Hey -- I've gotten my head around Scribus, so cut me some slack.  Errrmmm ... I think I've gotten my head around Scribus. )

Your patience and understanding will be greatly appreciated!

As will links to any decent suppliers.
