      Wow! Those look great. I've got to get started on my menu and may try the same thing. Thanks for the idea!

          I've printed on velum before and it came out ok (I have a Canon Inkjet). Some of the black lines were a little thick - almost like they bled. And it did take a long time for it to dry...and I found that even after it was dry, the velum was still kinda curling. Had to flatten it in a heavy book.

            did you print the velum on a regular printer? will it smear?

              I just used a regular HP residential inkjet printer. Within 20 mins the paper was dry and I was putting them together no smears yet!!

                  These look incredible! The vellum is so classy. I also love the background paper. Did you get that from Michael's also?
