I’ve printed on kraft paper before and wasn’t too pleased with the way the ink fades once dry.

We aren’t using kraft because I’d like to attempt to letterpress some of our invites, and kraft doesn’t hold up well to that challenge.

If you try it, make sure to use quality kraft paper (try paper source) unline me, who used crappy craft store paper. You can always buy a pack of 10 and test print (that’s what I’m doing!)

@Gagnon_party_of_2:  printers aren’t going to work well for Kraft paper. If you want to DIY I’d investing in an at home screen printer like a YUDU or something else that uses paint rather than ink.

@Gagnon_party_of_2:  Catprint.com has a craft paper option-their sample is actually really crisp. I’d look into that instead of a home printer!
