    Okay Ladies, i took your advise and bougth the fabric label kit and created some great labels with our printer. Now for my question: I have read that i should dry iron the labels to set the ink. And another said to soak in white vinegar for 10 min to set the ink. Which method is correct? Or should i just do both? I know that you guys have just the answer i need and Thank you in advance for any help!!!!!!

    I usually do the dry iron method. I'm sure others will chime in on what their favorite method is. Try a label each way and see which you like better.

    The only thing vinegar is going to do to that ink is get it wet. Your labels may or may not be permanent no matter what you do unless you treat with Bubble Jet Set first.
