It would not hurt it to try, at worst the printout would be faint, how 
well the paper survives depends a lot on how it was stored.  Direct 
sunlight definitely will degrade the paper that is why it is often in 
black bags.  If the paper is 8.5" wide you could use the roll paper for 
thermal fax machines, that paper should be readily available at office 
supply stores.
