@balown510:  You would have to use a special thermal transfer printer and white ribbon, but that would be pretty darn expensive. 

You could try to screen-print them or you could print them in light grey and then go over them with a skinny white paint pen or something if you don’t have a ton of them to do.

I think the easiest thing would be to buy them from Etsy or print them yourself in a different color ink. Good luck!

@balown510:  Those appear to be hand-written, possibly screen printed or this thing called gocco, perhaps. A much cheaper alternative would be to get a hig-res texture of the brown paper and then type your information in white. While you can’t print white text on a regular printer, you can print around shapes, so that the paper show through, essentially achieving the same look. You can just google “high res paper textures” and find one that you like. Hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything else 🙂

It looks like these areonly $3.50 per 24 (if I am reading this correctly). Are you sure it wouldn’t be easier and cheaper to just buy them?

I haven’t tried this yet, but was wanting something similar for my invite (silver on a black paper) but I can’t afford to have it professional printed.

You can get a custom stamp made of your design, then use a white stamp pad… thats what the ones from etsy look like anyways
