I think that could work, if you put the mask on a separate layer it can be
toggled both for visibility and for print.

Give it a try.

It might however be better to place a layer with the shaped "paper" behind
everything (instead of putting a mask in front of everything).

But it depends a lot on what capabilites the RIP has.
