You'll want to make sure whatever you print it on is;

fade resistant
reasonably translucent
plain on the other side - if you use photo paper the brand printed on the reverse side will come thru

I did up a white dial design for my EF; I initially did it on photo paper until Canon suddenly sponsored my instrument panel. I then did it on presentation quality paper printed on a colour laser printer, and while it looked sensational during the day, at night the lights behind it were very uneven, and the regular bulbs gave it that quality piss-yellow look. Also, the white speedo/tacho/fuel/temp needles became practically invisible.

I put up with it for a day before I changed to royal blue, which looks awesome.
