I want to put a poem on a sheet of vellum. How do I go about that? Can I put it in the printer and type a poem on it??  Huh

I don't want to be rude or anything but why ask questions on here when no one likes to answer??  Sad

For anybody that was curious, I did some research and it turns out you can put vellum through a printer.

aw, im sorry no one answered. if i wouldve seen it before i wouldve tried to help out. Smiley

I'm not sure if you tried it yet but if you haven't be careful touching it after because ill bet it's gonna be really inky so i'd let it sit for a bit.  Smiley

You are my sweetest downfall. I loved you first, I loved you first. Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth.

Vellum paper does take a while to dry, yeah.
I have used it with traditional pen and inks, and I usually let sit for about 20 mins.
I haven't used it in a printer though - I think it would depend on the type. Most modern printers probably would have no trouble, since they squirt ink onto the surface of the paper. You might find that it smudges however, as the ink will probably take longer to dry and will still be moving through the machinery of the printer. I'm just not sure.

I can understand getting upset, when it sometimes feels like people are ignoring you here, and getting super excited about stuff you don't really care for. But not everybody is here every day - and not everyone is in the same timezone even - it's a bit impatient to not even give your Q 24 hours before getting upset no-one's answered. I usually give myself TWO days before I do that.  Wink

You can adhear the vellum to you page with brads, eyelets, stiching/sewing, clear vellum tape (though sometimes that does show thru).

I have definitly printed on my vellum paper.. but definitly let it sit for at least 30 min.. you don't want it to smear.  When just writing on vellum, I use martha stewarts permanant writing pen.  Then there's no smearing at all.. with no wait time.

Also... some people may read you question and then come back to it when they have time to give an answer.. they may formulate their response and come back to post later...  Give us time to answer before getting frustrated....

to speed up the drying process you can use a heat gun though be careful to not either use it too close or for too long..

I feel your pain about unanswered questions..good luck:)

I actually bought self-adhesive, inkjet printable vellum sheets from Michaels once. I used them all up though, and I don't remember who makes them.

The poem turned out really nice and I adhered them with eyelets. LOVE IT! I just finished 2 pages so I will be posting soon.  Grin

It's quite possible that the people who looked at your question didn't know how to answer it, which is why you had views and no responses.  Also, not everyone checks this board every day.

I've been on vacation, so I haven't been on, but yes, you can use Vellum in the printer, but if you use too much ink the paper will curl, and you will want to let the ink set for at least an hour before touching it.  Also, be careful when putting vellum into the printer. I've had vellum sheets stick together and jam before because they're so thin.  I find feeding them one at a time works much better.
