This site (which I've never heard of) cites a number of sources for the practice of reciting the paragraph, one of which ostensibly relates to specifically reading it off of קלף, the others of which point out that reading it in general is a סגולה.

I am no Seder Hayom (or otherwise) scholar, but the first version here could be misread as meaning that it should be read from a manuscript if כ"י stands for "כתב יד", and not "כל יום", which is what appears in all three of the earlier versions. However, none of them mention anything about kosher parchment, כתב אשורית, or a guarantee.
This site gives the citation for the כף החיים in אורח חיים 132:23, which itself cites some other sources including the כף החיים (?), saying that קלף and כתב אשורית are a סגולה for wealth and general success.
