Re: [BKARTS] Printing on vellum



j -

The vellum you must be talking about is a type of paper, not an animal skin, right? I am asking about the animal skin used before paper. Sorry for the confusion in terminology.

Vellum can in most cases be printed on by inkjet printers with no problem (depending on the printer) but that's a slow process. For laser printing and other types, the most important thing (as far as I know) is the actual vellum itself. There are certain vellums that cannot be printed on and some that are printer safe (the won't melt in the printer). Otherwise, I've printed on vellum myself several times with no problems. It'll usualy say on the vellum package or box whether it's safe for printing on, and othersise, you load it into the printer just like paper. Hope that's helpful at least a little.

How were (are) books printed on vellum? What inks were used and how different was it (is it) from printing on paper?
