I'm making my first photo wall quilt with fabric sheets for Ink Jet Printing and kind of nervous - would anyone have some good suggestions and hints for me?

Good Morning Ann from michigan!
if you are using the pre treated sheets,make sure you have a coupon!
and before you actually put the picture on the sheets..press some muslin on butcher paper(it has a wax on one side)..to be sure it prints correctly..before you do it on the treated sheets.

Good luck!

Go to the top of this page and click on "search" then enter in Printing on Fabric. There will be lots of information and should answer your questions. I have used the sheets designed for printing and have used the BubbleJet and treated my own fabric. The Bubblejet is a less expensive way to go.

Welcome from Eastern Washington State! Good luck! Make sure you read the instructions carefully and follow them! Whether you use pre-treated or do your own and always keep your finished project out of direct sunlight...no matter how great the product, sunlight will eventually fade your pretty work!
