We had a hard time finding any ink pens that would write on stardream paper (i.e. gel pens, thin sharpies, ball point, etc). We also tried printing on the envelopes using both inkjet and laser printer. The laser printer worked well but allow ample dry time. Also I heard Gocco ink stays on stardream paper as well, but that may be way more work.

 Ultimately, we got a great price for hand written calligraphy and the calligrapher (Michele Clark!) had experience writing on stardream paper and her inks looked beautiful!

Could you use a light colored ink instead?  Like white, maybe?  Although some people frown on it, I personally think printing in white ink on clear labels would be easier because you’d be able to experiment a little without ruining a bunch of envelopes.

my envelopes are sapphire stardream from papersource.  i used michele clark as well!  she is fantastic!  she used silver ink and they looked great!  and matched perfectly to my color scheme (blue, white and silver).

I think printing on a clear label is a decent idea for this color and type of paper. If it’s going to be a major difficulty to print on with any type of ink, let alone a nonstandard color of ink, then something printed on clear labels may save you a world of trouble.
