I was at Office Max today and looking around for black cardstock and that semi-clear paper that alot of people seem to use for invitations over the top. So i asked a couple guys about it and they pointed me towards the transparecies, of coarse thats not what i wanted...is there a specific name for that kind of paper?

Yeah, Vellum is i think what you are looking for - it's part of the invitation itself overlaid over cardstock, and not the old-fashioned slip of blank tissue paper that was put in the envelope to protect the ink while it dried?

vellum is used a lot in scrapbooking, so look in the paper crafts section of michael's or other crafty stores. Just make sure if you want to run it through a printer that you get the printable kind to be safe. some of the glossier kinds of regular vellum doesn't take ink too well.

vellum is what you're looking for.

staples has it near their cardstock. what's cool about staples is that they carry two different kinds for both inkjet and laser printers.

and it's pretty cheap.

i used it for my wedding invites
