Would I be able to print stuff on homemade paper? I think my printer is an inkjet one; it's HP and, um...I got it at walmart? Lol.

But like...to print something the paper is basically sorta rolled around a cylinder type thing, right? (sorry if I'm not explaining myself clearly/totally wrong) not sure about this, because it's too dark down there to look at my printer innards, but it's what I'm guessing.

Anyway, if it does need to be sorta rolled that way, I'm afraid it might bend...it's about the thickness of watercolour paper; maybe a lil thinner (at least, the paper I made before was that thick. What I'm hoping to make might be a bit thicker than that)

See, I have to do this restaurant logo project type thing, annnd we have to make a menu, and I wanted to use homemade paper cause it has a cool texture. I could probably find cool-texture paper at the craft store or something, buuut...
D: I want to make my own.

Plus, it's cheaper if I do. x3

So, yeah (excuse the rambling), printer + homemade paper = ?

Not sure if this really helps:

I bought some handmade paper from Hobby Lobby, and ran it through my inkjet printer, BUT...  it's a very flat paper with rose petals embedded in it (also, it's a little thinner than watercolor paper).  I have other handmade papers that are entirely too "bumpy" to run through the printer (I'm afraid they'll get jammed).

I tried watercolour paper in my printer, just to see what would happen. It sorta gurgled at me and I got scared and yanked it out. x3

I decided to put like, paper mulch on a piece of bigger-than-usual paper, and that could be printed on...I didn't put a lot on though; it was mostly for colour 'cause the mulch was sorta pinkish.
