    Default Re: how to print white on coloured paper

    I do this sort of thing. I use Vistaprint. It's cheap...can't be bothered with the whole print and get card and fold and bother.

    I used this, this year:Click image for larger version.

    I guess, if there isn't heaps of them, you could cheat.
    Print it, then use white paint or twink to colour in the white bit.

    Yes I could, but it really is not that big a deal. I was just struck by the technical issue.

    To print white on something colored you need to use opaque white ink or paint silk screen would be the way to go. You can't print white on colored paper with an inkjet. But you COULD print a colored background onto WHITE paper and leave the type "knocked-out" so that you see the type as white.

    It looks OK on yellow.
    Print on white paper, glue the paper over the yellow card?

    Card is not that expensive (assuming you only want one or two). Somewhere like Geoffs Emporium sell various card stocks for 20c a sheet.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    All good suggestions. I think this topic is just about exhausted - until next Christmas, anyway.

    I hadn't thought of Geoff's Emporium as a source of card - definitely worth remembering.
