I’d ask your graphic designer colleagues about that one.  Or a printer.  Also, if I were you, I’d consider getting your invites printed somewhere besides vistaprint.  Keep in mind that the invitations will not only be relevant to your wedding, but will also be a represetation of your work as a graphic designer.  You want a high-quality product, and vistaprint just isn’t.

I JUST printed my programs on vellum that I bought at Michaels. I used a laserjet printer.  I made the programs in Publisher and set the paper setting to Transparency and manual feed.  Worked like a charm.

That Michaels paper was good to print on either ink or laser ( so said the store associate) but I read that inkjet you have to do one at a time and give it time to dry.

Paper Source has inkjet specific vellum paper for $3.95 for a 10 pack.  I bought some but I’m going to return it since the Michaels pack was $5.99 for 20 and I had a 40% off coupon. I printed them 4-up so 60 programs cost me less than $4 total.

Hobby Lobby sells packages of printable vellum. That being said, I was able to print on their vellum that was not specifically labeled printable (the two types were located in different areas in the store for some reason) with a laser printer.

I think any inkjet vellum would have to be left to dry a little bit.
