My writing is terrible, plus I HATE to write, so I was wondering if there is a way to print on the PL cards? Thanks for your help>

I use the silhouette sketch pens with a single line font. I also did this to a few pens so I can use my different gel and ball point pens: http://ligayatg.blogspot.com/2013/07/diy-pen-holder-for-silhouette-cameo-or.html?m=1
I hate using a real printer it's a pain for me when my silhouette does it all.

I know there are normal printers that can print on PL cards.

Do I just lay the PL cards on the Silhouette sticky thing, or do I cut my own cards too when I use the Silhouette sketch pens?

I haven't seen the tutorials linked above....
But I used to print on my PL cards all the time!
Just type your journaling in a Word program,
print it on normal printer paper,
align your card over the printing on the paper,
stick it down (washi tape works well to stick 'cause it pulls right up w/o ripping the paper),
run it through the printer a second time.....voila!

Here's a blog tutorial I did about printing on tiny things. I use the same routine for PL cards!
