    set the printer ink on my lable? I have printed a lable on unbleached muslin (using freezer paper as backing) and now I need to "set" the ink. I did a test run and just heat setting does not work. Any ideas?

    When I printed on fabric, I soaked it in a chemical for that purpose, air-dried it and pressed freezer paper as support. The colors were not as rich as I would have liked, but they stayed. (sorry can't recall the ame at thee moment)

    Can I use this AFTER I have printed? Or have I got the "cart before the horse" so to say??

    You could just write over it with a Micron or Zig Writer pen. They can both be heat set and are both archival.

    THAT's the one. You need to prep the fabric before printing.

    I agreee with the other suggestion of touching up what you have. I had to do that even with the bubble jet.
