I have always had good luck with an ordinary printer (ours is a Canon Pixma) but I do treat the label fabric with Bubble Jet Set and Bubble Jet Rinse. The labels have withstood many washings and dryings.

I have an HP deskjet printer. I use the EQ Printables fabric sheets and follow the steps on the package with good results.

You definitely want an ink jet printer for labels. However, the type of ink in the printer makes a huge difference. Regular inks are water soluble, whereas pigment inks are not. Here is a link to an article by Gloria Hansen that explains it:

The ink we use in our Brother printers is pigment ink, so should last. I found this out by looking it up on Amazon (which is where I buy our replacements).

Thanks for your recommendations. We have to change our Epson printer so I am looking to buy the best one to print cotton labels on freezer paper.
