Anyone know if you need special printer/ink to print on vellum please? Asking for a friend who is wanting to use vellum inserts in some invites. Ta in advance

I did mine on vellum with normal ink in a normal printer. Just do one at a time rather than stacking as they may smudge (bitter voice of experience!)

some vellum is better at others at drying I find (it's a bit trial and error TBH)

I tend to use the "draft" setting on my printer to use less ink, which helps with the drying & still looks fine.

Set aside to dry for 24hrs (not stacking, bitter experience hear too ) - if not dry then, it will never dry properly, some vellums just don't take ink....
