Has anyone printed on cardsandpockets.com envelopes before? I bought the metallic gold leaf and would like to print the addresses in black using either an inkjet or laser printer. Inkjet would be easier to set up but the laser would most likely work better. I think the inkjet would be smeared easily.
What do you guys think? What is the best way to print on metallic paper envelopes?

I havent printed on THOSE particular ones, but we printed directly on all ours on a few different printers had no issues. You’ll need a few extra envelopes for test runs, but other than that, regardless of what kind of printer you are using, quickly remove and set face up to dry and you should be just fine.

It depends on the printer – I mean, not all laser printers work the same. Some give off too much heat so it curls the envelope a bit (perhaps a downfall) and may even show a bit of a haze. Some inkets will work – but you’ll have to try a sample, and don’t forget to give it some time to dry.
Message me and I can walk you through it.

I wonder if Kinkos would print them. The only laser printer I can access is at work, I’m worried about jamming or breaking it with the oddly sized envelopes. I might try my inkjet but I know the ink will bleed. Maybe I could spray it with fixative or something.

Try your inkjet and let it dry for a few minutes.. before you break your printer at work =)
