    Has anyone used this product? Bubble Jet Set and Bubble Jet Set Rinse? I'm looking for a good, lasting product to make inkjet based fabric labels, that can stand up to washing.

    I've never used it but if you google, there are recipes for homemade versions. I always want to try making it and see how it holds up in the wash.

    I buy pre-treated fabric sheets and follow their instructions - as far as I know, the labels last.

    Those are great products for using your own fabrics. Just make sure to prewash and rinse well. Do not use any fabric softener before printing :wink:
    Using the jet set after printing the pre-treated sheets is a good idea too :D

    This can and will! I have made three graduation quilts using these, and they have stood up quite well, have to use inkjet printer, and heat set, the oldest quilt is 5 years lold, been washed atleast 8 times(puppies are something else) and it looks brand new.
