Preparing to Print on Fabric
Using this method you can print onto either man-made or natural fabrics – as long as the chosen fabric is washed and fully dried beforehand.
Before proceeding, note the size of your printer and the available print area, and ensure your fabric is of a suitable size to pass through this area. With your fabric sized, cut a piece of freezer paper to around ½" larger than your fabric.
Next, iron the shiny side of your freezer paper to the fabric, taking care to match your iron’s setting to the recommended heat setting for the type of fabric you’re using.
Once cooled, the paper and fabric should both be quite stiff – if any fabric is coming away, simply re-iron it. You may find that you need to trim the fabric down; this can be done with a pair of scissors although a paper-cutter or guillotine will provide a cleaner finish.
With your stiffened fabric in the paper tray of your printer, send your image from your PC to your printer, aiming to print at the best quality available. You might opt to do a test print onto paper beforehand in order to judge the position and quality of the final print.
