    Ask Beate
    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Blanche asked: "Does the Versamark® resist/ghosting technique only work on glossy paper? I prefer to use matte stationery, and wonder if this technique will work on it."
    A: "I have done this technique on Whisper White cardstock before and it works with that cardstock as well. I am not sure about your stationery. Just remember, the smoother the cardstock, the better the ghosted image will show up."

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Lori said "GREAT tutorial. I love doing these. I did a large order (100) and figured out that I was going broke with the sticky tape. And, a lot of them popped open. The next time I had a large order, I used the glue gun. Way cheaper and none of them came apart."
