This list of LGBTQIA+ pride flags is not exhaustive but we have made an effort to try to cover some of the more commonly used pride flags.

Definitions will vary but the pan community generally distinguishes itself from the bi community with the concept that bisexual individuals are attracted to more than one gender while pansexual individuals are attracted to others regardless of gender.

I often get asked what paper I recommend. For regular copy paper this 5 ream case of paper is one of the better deals. For cardstock I really like this card stock paper on amazon. It is much cheaper than I have found in stores and has a good thickness for most projects without being so thick that it jams the printer.
