Printable Vellum?

Is there a special kind of vellum I need to buy to be able to print on it with my regular ink printer?  I was going to go to Michael's and test but maybe someone has already tried this?

    I bought some sheets for cheap on ebay. Nothing special, just regular vellum and I used a laser jet printer. Idk what a difference using an ink printer will make, but I know laserjet works fine. Hope this helps! :)

    I bought a pack from Hobby Lobby, it was cheap. It just says "Clear Vellum" & printed fine.

    Any vellum should work. When you go to print on it check your settings. Some printers have a "vellum" (or similar) setting. This is because it requires less ink then regular paper and the regular setting can cause smearing.If you don't have a setting like that and you are having smearing problems, try sending it through on a "fast draft" setting.
