Most commonly used by graphic designers and architects for technical drawings, drafting vellum is a versatile paper suitable for a range of uses. Its surface lends itself to fine-line drawing and calligraphy, and because it’s translucent, it can be used for tracing images; for photo overlays in scrapbooking projects; or for storyboarding. And because it’s compatible with inkjet and laser printers, you can load your paper tray with vellum and print from digital files or produce multiple copies. Though technical drawings are most often done on white vellum for readability, colored vellums can add pop to other sorts of projects.
