That’s VERY thick paper. Traditional cardstock ranges from 60-110 lbs. Yours is actually 140 lbs, which is something I’ve never worked with. I don’t think bleed-through will be your problem. I’m more concerned that you might have trouble with your printer. You’ll want to be sure it can handle something that thick. My laser doesn’t work well with anything over 90lbs, but my ink jet handles anything I throw at it (or in it). As always, never underestimate the power of a test run!!!

Good luck!

I think it will all depend on what kind of ink you use! I would def. do some test runs, but I think in the end it should be fine! My invites were printed on the front and back and none of the ink bled through!

I wouldn’t be so concerned with the ink bleeding through since it’s such thick paper. I’d be more concerned with it smearing on one side if you are sending it through the printer twice. Even if it dries, the printer could heat it back up and smear it. I’d definitely test it out on a few. If it doesn’t work, you can always get really nice paper to match your invitation and include the poem in the invitation envelope.
