Can I . . . ?
Can I use sheets printed with Thermography in my Laser Printer?
If you like your letterhead printed using thermography, you should realize that thermography and laser printers don't mix. (Thermography is a printing technology that allows the ink to rest on the surface of the paper.) Thermography is applied at relatively low heat and has little heat tolerance. This means that the high heat used in a laser printer will cause the ink to come off the paper and adhere to the laser printer's drum. This can ruin a good batch of paper, or worse, ruin the laser printer itself.

Emboss or Blind Emboss
Embossing is the process of creating a raised, bas relief image on paper, or other substrates. It is accomplished by pressing the paper against a three-dimensional die, creating the raised image. Debossing is a similar process where the image is pressed into the paper as opposed to being raised.
Also known as "stamping" or "hot-stamping", it is the process of fusing foil to the paper. It is accomplished by pressing a thin layer of foil between the paper and a heated die. The image on the die effectively cuts and heats the foil, binding it permanently to the paper.

Flat or offset printing differs from other printing techniques because it does not have the raised ink texture. Flat printed letterheads have a sharp page image text that is clear and concise.
Vellum is a finish applied to paper in the paper making process. It is a toothy finish, applied to increase the absorption rate of ink. It is generally available in higher quality papers. It has nothing to do with a paper's weight, color or opacity.
