    @Cynderbug:  that depends on the printer – most just leave the white areas un-printed on.  I’m not sure if most printers would let you make the champagne paper lighter than it is, if hat’s what you are asking.

    @Cynderbug:  generally ink jet printers just have CMYK – cyan (blue) magenta (red) yellow and black.  White (whether transparent or actually colored in white) is generally printed by not putting down any dye.  I believe this is also true for RGB printers, which is the other common system.  With CMYK or RGB it is not possible to print a lighter color than the envelope you are using.

    The vast majority of printers use one of these systems and I would assume Staples would too.  Specialty places like screen printers sometimes use white as a color.  This would be likely if they were very specific about only allowing your 4 colors or if someone was hand printing.  If you are still worried ask if their printers print white.

    @Cynderbug:  On word you can make the background “blend” or “disappear and only show the design. And type onto it and make sure the picture has “text wrap” of behind the words. What version do you have?? I figured out to do it when I was playing around with RSVP and invite layouts on Friday 🙂

    Question – what is Inkscape???

    @Cynderbug:  Hmmm thank you! I might have to fool around on it a little bit and see what it is all about when I get home 🙂
