I have printed on vellum.  You just have to have alot of practice sheets and tinker with the settings on your printer.  It takes awhile to get it right but it does look really nice with a dark color under it.

@menobride: You can do whatever you want! But the reason most designers use vellum is because it lets you see what’s underneath it. It has this cool ghostly effect. If you’re not putting something underneath it, it’s could be thought of as a waste of the vellum. But not really – do what YOU think looks good!

@menobride: I used Scotch Velum tape….using only a little piece here and there strategically placed at the top of the velum lay…so far it’s holding nicely to the invites

I printed up some menus exactly like this with orange and red paper behind it for a class I did in high school. The teacher gave me excellent scores because they looked so good.

I personally think it works!
