    I was trying to print invitations on a vellum overlay and about 2 minutes after I printed them on the computer some of the writing just disappeared!! Any one know any tricks or is there a special ink. I wasted at least 20 invites.

    You might try searching for a product called:

    Here is a link:

    I have not ever tried nor do I own this product.

    some vellums take ink better than others. Yours sounds like it may have a coating on it that is resisting the ink. Be sure that it is printable vellum that works with your type of printer...(ink jet?).

    But I have done some that need no treatment, and another one (that had a pattern in it) would not dry and had to be heat embossed with powders, but have not had any where it did not take the ink at all. Try printing on the opposite side of a vellum you already made a mistake on- sometimes there is one side that takes ink better than the other.

    I DO have the Printing Pouch and it works great. If you cannot find it at a LSS, then try ordering directly from Scraperfect or thru Joann.com (in the vellum paper section).

    Do you have access to a laser printer? That would probably work. Also, is the printing black? You could probably print off one copy and then use a photo-copy machine to copy it to the vellum.

    you can get one of those printing pouches (but it's been on my mind that perhaps cornstarch would work) I've been meaning to try it but haven't gotten around to it. Maybe you could do it on the reverse side of one of your vellum inserts that were ruined? Put some on a soft cloth rub it on vellum (don't leave stray powder though) and print

    the pouch works for keeping your ink from smearing. not sure about keeping the ink from disappearing.
