Vellum's translucent properties make it hard to print well on--the ink smears, takes forever to dry, and often resists the ink. But there is a "must have" product on the market which fixes all of this ( and more). The Perfect Printing Pouch by ScraPerfect is like magic fairy dust for printing! Works really well on lots of other papers and surfaces (like mulberry, fabric...) I can honestly say that I've stopped wasting my time and supplies because of this little wonder.
