    I am trying to reproduce wedding certificate that uses gold leaf. I will be
    printing on an HP Inkjet.

    Does anybody know if the gold leaf color can be reproduced and how to do it.

    Thanks in advance

    You can print a flat goldish color, but not reflective colors like gold
    or silver on a home inkjet.

    Check into buying blank certificate stock that already has a gold foil
    border (or whatever), and print the rest yourself.

    There's also metallic gold polyester media, which comes in sheets:

    If you sample the colour and texture of a photo of gold leaf it will give
    you something of the same feel, but obviously won't have a metallic look
    itself.

    The "Gold Leaf" look and feel cannot be reproduced by normal inkjet
    printers at this time ... but IIRC five years ago (or so) Alps had an
    inkjet printer that could print either Metallic Gold or Metallic Silver.

    I think it's now totally discontinued ... but "who knows" ...
