Youre welcome.
I think they may make it for laser printers and ink jet. I dont know how well it would work with laser printers, if it was for inkjet, just because of how different they are. 0_o   Good luck!

Oh my goodness, that is SO cool!  Knowing that will definitely make creating apliques for my Girl Scout troop so much easier.  Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you....amazing how timely this site is!!!  My husband asked me to make tote bags as a gift to clients.  He wanted the company logo on the pocket.  I have been musing about how to do it.  I use the label process with the expensive film to print my logo and then iron it onto ribbon - OK results but not great.  Then I saw the tutorial to treat fabric - seemed OK but I don't have the products in my kitchen.  So today, just in time, along came your post.  I took artists canvas - the material that comes precoated with Gesso.  We put it through the printer and produced the image on the back of the canvas.  The stiffness of the canvas fed through the printer without any freezer paper or backing paper - cut out the canvas and feed it through.  I love this canvas as stiffener in bags - and now for this.  I bought a 2 metre remnant for about $10 - great stuff.  Thanks again for the tip!!

Your so welcome!  I'm glad that it helped out. 

Update on washing:

I have tried a couple of things and haven't been happy yet, so I am still looking, but I will be busy for a few days.  I'll keep you updates and hopefully find something that is what I am looking for soon!  Thanks to everyone again for your nice comments.  I'm fairly new around here and this has meant a lot to me!

I don't know if anyone is familiar with Bubble Jet Set 2000-- it's a solution that you dip your fabric in pre- wax paper and printing. It makes the image more permanent. I don't know if you have to have a Bubble Jet Printer. All I know is that the end result is a color fastness similar to hand dyed material. The only places I know to order it from is online and it runs a little under $15.
