Can you photocopy onto tracing paper?

  1. Totally random question - just as above? I really want to do this for window art, but no one seems to know and I don't want to ruin the photocopier trying! Lol! C x

    This kind of thing would be better than tracing paper:

  4. Yeah, I did think of that type of thing, but then I think we'd need something special to put colour onto it!

    Yes, you can.Put the tracing paper in ofset tray (can't remember its actual name -that tray at sidewhere you put card etc on, not in the actual drawer). Sometimes won't register its there as too light, so put regular A4 underneath. Must admit cross fingers as doing though as am concerned it seems like an activity that could jam the copier!

    I put it in the paper drawer as long as it's a4 or a3[​IMG] Too thin to register in the offset tray.
     
  7. Somewhere in the menu there is a hash symbol - press that, it is for copying on to thin paper. I copy on to tracing paper frequently. (Tho good quality paper, not the really flimsy stuff like tissue paper)
     
  8. Thanks, all! I will see what happens then! x
