As others said, Buffalo Board would be suitable for you. It does print digitally relatively well, but you'll have to find a printer who will run it through their press. Note: there is slightly smoother lighter side, and a coarser darker side.
Buffalo is not that expensive - it's just that you'll be quoted a lot for it because not all printers have it in ready stock. Paper companies charge considerably less to printers for buying larger mill packs (~100 larger sheets), and the first job usually foots the bill for the entire mill pack.
How many colours apart from red are there?

When asking a question like this on a forum, everyone is just gong to justify and post-rationalise their own circumstances.
Revealing to an employer that you discontinued your studies says much more about your attitude, determination and work ethic. If you want to quit because you see an "easy way out" (being 'self taught'), then you're probably not the right person an employer wants.
Why do you want to be a graphic designer? The last thing the world needs is yet another graphic designer. A graphic designer who feels their opinion means more than any sense of practicality. If you already have an unearned sense of entitlement ("I _DESERVE_ to be a designer NOW!!! because I WANT TO!") then you're definitely not the right person an employer wants.

1. What has this to do with country people?
2. You do realise that "save from $4.00" refers to the saving from purchasing 1 unit only? Purchase 2 units, you save $8.
3. You do realise that original prices are rarely listed on sales price tickets?
4. Why is this "epic"?
5. What has this to do with country people?

:: You guys are a bunch of hypocrites. ::
Thanks for the insult. Never entered the competition and if I could pull it off AIF I would. Couldn't agree more with you @Scotty.
@Noftus I sincerely hope you are a representing the minority of the design community in Australia. Otherwise we're fucked.
:: Some junior designers in the making actually enjoy design more than just for the money, and simply need a more than an unrealistic fucking unrealistic university brief to get off their ass to be proactive for. ::
Sounds like the next generation might need some mentors? Or experienced professionals giving them their opinion and taking a stand on such issues. Young designers could see that spec work is wrong in the eyes of those working in the industry and we could try and eradicate it from the 'beginning of their design journey' bullshit. Maybe on an online forum? If only there was such a thing...
