    If you go up to the top of the page and click on the search icon and enter in printing on fabric you will find a number of links with information on this subject. Hope this helps :D

    Along with printing pictures on the fabric sheets, you could even use iron on transfers. I was weary about them until I tried them. They actually look like the picture. Before when I've tried anything iron on, it doesn't turn out like it should or when you wash it, it messes up. However, I really like these iron on sheets and they look just the same after being washed.

    I made my husband a photo quilt for his 50th with fishing photos through the years. I was able to find a quilting shop by me that did t-shirts with laser printer and they printed the photos onto quilting fabric in 4 1/2 in squares for a ohio star quilt. They won't peel and they with stand
    washing.

    If you use the iron-on inkjet printing method make sure you wash the fabric and don't add fabric softener, it will stay color true much much longer and won't peel.

    I never use fabric softener with any of my material. I get the fabric softener dryer sheets and toss one or half of one in the dryer but never the liquid fabric softener. I've washed and washed a purse I had with an inkjet printed picture onto an Iron on transfer sheet and it still looks the same as it did when I put it on there. :)
