    I have the cheapy, bottom of the barrell HP deskjet 3520 and it works GREAT ! I have ran the fabric sheets from Electric Quilt thru it and printed pics on the fabric with no problems ! Just my 2 cents worth . And if the color runs out it wills till print with black only. Watch for that on some printers because if they run out of say color ink they won't print anything :x

    i have a canon pixma pro 9000. it's a bit pricey, but will print on sheets of paper (or fabric ironed to freezer paper) up to 14" x 28".

    when i use it to print on fabric treated with bubble jet set, it's about 98-99% colorfast. it's hard to tell the difference between a fresh print and one that's been washed. (what little color does wash away comes out in the first wash. after that, it stays for gooooooooooooood.)

    when i print on untreated fabric, the ink bleeds a little and about half washes away. so, if i want the ink to wash out completely, i use my hp to print on untreated fabric. (that comes in handy if i want to hand-piece. i print my pieces on the fabric back with cutting and stitching lines. no guessing about seam allowances, and no drawing them by hand. especially useful if i'm using curvey pieces.)

    canon also makes smaller, less expensive models that use the pigment inks.

    I have the HP photosmart all in one C4280. It was cheap around 50 dollars but it uses up the ink so fast that it is costing a fortune to keep refilled. And the new cartridges are expensive. They are very small and dont hold much ink.
    I have not tried to print on fabric with it.

    I also recommend the printers that use separate black cartridges and each color has a cartridge. That way you don't have to replace all the colors when one runs out--just the one that is out. I have a Cannon i560S and it prints everything and is a workhorse. It's probably been replaced with a newer model since this is years old. It still works fine.
