Inked Cloth (Printing on Fabric)
The recommendations on this page are for items that I personally use and trust because they make my life easy and they work!
I use and recommend Epson printers
This is my general purpose printer that I use for printing small images onto fabric.
These are my favorite pre-treated sheets for making fabric prints that are washable.
Using Extravorganza sheets is a convenient way to make sheer fabric prints.
Krylon Preserve It is a spray that will help protect and extend the life of your digital prints. It protects against UV fading, moisture, and smudges, and is acid free, and archival safe.
Bubble Jetset is a liquid that you use to pre-soak your fabric prior to printing, and which makes your images waterproof and washable.
Bubble Jetset Rinse is used to rinse your fabric after it has been printed and helps to remove any excess ink.
These are heavyweight freezer paper sheets that you can use to back your fabric in preparation for printing. They help to feed the fabric through your printer without jamming.
Sticky labels can be used to back your fabric prior to printing. They are a little more expensive than freezer paper, however you can reuse them multiple times and I can usually get up to about a dozen prints from each sticky label before the sticky stuff wears off.
A brayer is a hand roller and can generally be found at your local craft store. Brayers come with either a soft or hard roller. The soft roller is used for printing and painting, but the hard roller is used to remove bubbles and wrinkles when attaching sticky labels to fabric.
Blue painter’s tape is used for taping fabric pieces to a backing sheet of cardstock when making small fabric prints.
Inkaid is a product that is used to prepare any flat surface for printing using an inkjet printer and are generally used to print images that will be used in artwork.
The inkAID Sample Set contains 4 oz. (125 ml) of White Matte, Clear Semi-Gloss, Clear Matte, Clear Gloss, Clear Gloss Type II, Translucent Gloss, and Iridescent Pearl.

I design all the PhotoArt and digital imagery that I print onto fabric for use in my textile art and stitched mixed media journals.
