No, use that stiff, plasticky translucent oilcloth paper.
It's kind of see thru like wet paper, but is dry. Looks like translucent plastic but is paper.

I have a vendor who uses that paper on his cards, and I remember the first time he showed up, i never threw his card away cause the paper was so unique.

I was thinking of some "frosted" plastic sheeting. Now you've peaked my curiosity though!

I do like impulsive's idea!


I came to the same conclusion...after staring at it for five minutes!

Well...many people are saying to go with Speed Girls new card design...but too many are saying to ditch the designs all together! What is the primary problem with her design? The colors? The design? Does anybody want to stick their neck out with their own suggestion?

Hey, I just stumbled across the paper I was talking about.

I sent a bunch of "Harry and David gift baskets this Christmas and they sent me a "thank you" present of abox of their "Royal Chocolates". I just raided the box and HEY! the sheet describing what each piece is, is printed on that oilcloth paper. If you have a Harry and David at a mall you can snatch a box of these and see what I'm alking about (this chocolate is every bit as good as Godiva if you ask me..)

In sitting here trying to describe it, it suddenly occurred to the old draftsman in me that this is a vellum of some sort. Heavyweight and stiff.

I'll mic the thickness tomorrow if I remember to.

Yeah RIGHT! I don't think so.
Sees- too dry
Ethel- to salty
Truffles- too hard to find someone who sells it.
Hershey- generic and dry
Lindt- commercial and fabulous
Godvia- is like a Cigarette. "There is no substitute"

I won't argue with you Wasabe.

Scientific research has proven that females react differently to chocolate than males do. The actual brain chemistry shows notable changes when a female eats chocolate - this does not occur in males.

To a guy, chocolate is just "good stuff to eat" - no more no less.

To a female, chocolate is a mood enhancer, a sedative, a euphoric..

In my old hardankle guy opinion, the Harry and David chocolate was every bit as good as the last Godiva assortment I got last season. Creamy milk chocolates with no graininess - bitter yet luscious dark chocolates. Rich, fulfilling creams and syrups in their centers. Premium nuts and dried fuits in some of them. Good stuff.

But I defer all absolute judgements to any and all warm, soft-skinned females who feel that I am misguided in my assessment.

Baby, she's all yours...
