Printing on Vellum

When I print on vellum - and let it sit to make sure the ink is dry - it still smears. I'm using good HP ink cartridges. Any suggestions.

RE: Printing on Vellum

I have never printed on vellum but I have a friend who does. She said that if you are using an ink jet printer that there is vellum you can buy that is made specifically for ink jet printing so the ink will not smear. She said you can but it at Michael's the brand is Strathmore. below is also a link that carries it. She also said the only way for it not to smear is to use a laser jet printer. Hope this helps.
