Step 1: Aging the Paper
First You need to convert new paper pages into an old one.
Make the coffe and paint papers with it. Do it twice (or more). Then let it dry. If You want regular old pages, then let the pages dry on the flat surface. If You want more natural retro look, then dry the papers on the sun and pour more coffe on them before that.
Step 2: Making the Paper Printable
After drying the paper will have bumps so take the iron and do some ironing.
Step 3: Printing
Aged paper made by method which I'm presenting could be used in ordinary printers. It is flat enough for that.
Now use Your imagination and print some cool graphics. I think, that the best will be black and white pictures, but of course You can experiment with color as well.
