Really nice - like it alot.

usually if you print on plain fabric (rather than pretreated made for printer fabric) it will wash out - mine always has even after heat setting with a iron - but maybe your ink will set better.

if the fabric doesn't want to feed you can iron it onto wax paper cut to size - then feed it thru your printer.

How about putting fabric stiffener on your fabric, letting it dry then printing?  Has this been tried?

Yep!  That was my plan, but I was actually going to use freezer paper.  (The same way that you use it for a stencil, just no stencil.  I'll make the tutorial by tommorrow and get it up.

There is also a spray that you can buy to spray it afterward.  I will have to go find it tommorrow and tell everyone what it is.  I can't remember.

P.S.  Thanks to everyone for all of your nice comments!  I really appreciate it.

Oooohhhh goodie.  Once you find out what it is, could you let us know?  I might try and work on a homemade version *rubs non-existent thinking beard* Mwahahahahaha!!  Roll Eyes

So is the freezer paper waxy on one side so the wax helps to seal the ink?
