This is my first post ever.   I ahve been a guest on craftster many times.   I was wondering if anyone out there had ever silkscreened on paper and then ran the paper thru a computer  printer?  I have silkscreened many times but never tried this and I am wondering if it will mess up my inkject.  advice please.

If the paper will go through the inkjet unprinted, it will probably go through printed.  However, I think there is a good chance that the screenprinted inks could be abrasive on the inkject printer heads.  This isn't such a big deal with an HP printer or other similar printer where the heads are part of the replaceable cartridge, however, Epson printers and other printers that have permanent print heads are a different story.

Thank you! I do have a HP but I am unsure I would want to have replace all my ink for the small project i have in mind.

What paper did you print on? I've run paper through my hp before, no problem. I used rives bfk. Only thing is, if you're printing over the silkscreen, you may have a resist where the ink goes from paper to ink.
