I have hand fed 140 lb. watercolour paper with a wash and lots of
metallic pigments on it through an HP Laser Printer ( exact model not
known because it was not mine). It worked beautifully! I printed 60
invitations this way. A few did not hold the toner well. The others I
immediately sprayed with a fixative to make sure that the toner would
stay put - and it did! Have been carrying one around to my classes for a
while now and the toner is still on there solid. The same printer would
not feed the foil stuff that bonds to the toner for a fake "foil - stamp"
look and sometimes balked at labels. Good luck with your project!
