Default Help with Fabic Sheets Printed Sheets

I have successfully printed my labels on the fabric sheet. In the directions, it mentions how to get off any extra ink. Well, how do you determine If you have any extra ink. It looks okay to me, but don't want to press and have a mess and afraid to touch it. Thanks.

Use a pressing cloth and iron the sheets. If any color comes off on the pressing cloth you have some excess ink. I generally use a scrap piece of muslin for a pressing cloth.

Never had a problem with excess ink, I just use a cotton fabric on the front and hot iron well front and back, then wash to make sure no colours will run later.

And: make sure to take off any paper BEFORE ironing. Ask me how I know.

LOL

If you have a good printer there should not be extra ink. But follow CKCOWL's advice just in case.

there are so many different printable products, treatments, printers and ink types out there now i would play it safe.
i would follow the instructions as though i already knew there was excess.
better safe than sorry.
