I love the look of vellum!  I didn’t use them for wedding invitations but we used them at the agency I used to work for.

You can write on them but need to use a pen that’s more like a thin Sharpie.  You can also print on them – I think you have to use a laser printer.

I used them, and hand addressed my envelopes and return addresses using a colored sharpie marker.  You can use a fountain pen too, and most other types of ink… ball point is not so great, gel markers are OK most of the time.  One thing that is very cool… I printed all the addresses on plain cheap copy paper in fancy script, then cut to slide into the vellum, then traced… they look amazing, since it’s written in marker, not printed by machine, no one knows I “cheated” on the script!

Ooo i ordered ALL my paper from paperandmore! The metallic pearlescent vellum is AMAZING! It looks super classy and pretty, but it’s not all crazy glittery. You can use a Sharpie pen on it, BUT give it time to dry. Like, write on ten, lay them out for 10 minutes, then blot test them with a kleenex. I smudged a few.

i like the tracing idea the best though!

Oooo I can’t imagine you won’t go with the pearlescent! It’s got a much better pop than the colored vellums (which are just flat and not sparkly). They’re way super cool. I was super pleased with ours. It provided a nice level of obscurity, too–you couldn’t see RIGHT through it (we used it as an overlay over our invitation) so it smudged everything up nicely but was still transparent. Ah, you’lls ee what I mean =]
