Trying to convert cups of flour to ounces. Which one of these is correct ?

I've volunteered to make cupcakes for a friend's wedding this weekend. The person coordinating this gave me a recipe from Cooks Illustrated that calls for:

1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour (7 1/2 ounces)

I have to make five batches of this and wanted to find how much flour I need to buy. In using my kitchen converter calculator I noticed the amounts seems off and decided to try converting 1 1/2 cups AP flour to ounces just to verify and it gave me 6 2/3 ounces as the conversion.

So is it 7 1/2 ounces or 6 2/3 ounces? Should I just stick to measuring by cups? I normally wouldn't worry so much but since it is for a wedding I wanted to be as accurate as possible. I tried searching for the recipe but Cooks Illustrated wants my email address for a "14 day trial" and I am not falling for that.
