Anyone Ever?

Put Vellum in the printer and print on it?

I have before. You need to change the print settings to fast, that way there is not a lot of ink going down on the vellum. Gwen has some good tips too I believe.

I have but it is tricky! You can only print on one side of it. Also I think you can change the setting on your printer to print on vellum??? Look online I think think that is where I found out how to do it. Print on the more flat side and then let it dry overnight. If you touch it right away it will smudge. Hope this helps Smile

I totally just ran my vellum through the printer without changing anything and had no problem whatsoever with it. I want to do it more now because it turned out awesome.

I love creating my own word art and printing it on vellum. I didn't change anything on my printer either other than changed the quality to high.

Here are a couple of examples:

I remember having to print on 1 side, and not the other. We did this for part of our wedding invites when I made those.

all of the time! I usually set the printer for transperancy. Sometimes I print on the reverse side, sometimes I don't. I usually allow at least an hour for the ink to completely set before I use it.
