    I would love to be able to help you out, but actually it depends on the type of ink you use in your printer.


    If its ink jet, neither will really work.  If its a laser printer, you might be able to get away with tea staining after you print it.

    As a general rule, never stick anything coated in flammable powder (the tea) into an electrical appliance (a printer.) Yes, I know that its dry when you stick it in, but the teastain actually can damage your printer.


    Instead, test it by running one sheet through the printer with the exact size and font styling you will be using.  (You want to make sure that even if it smudges a little bit, that you can read it.)  Then tea stain it.


    If you don’t like the look, you can always create the aged look on the computer (you can download a free trial of photoshop for a month) and create it via wallpapers and brushes!  If you need help, feel free to pm me


    Hope this helps!
