Experimenting with different surfaces to print images can be daunting. One of the ways to make printing fabric as easy as possible is to buy a texitle that is ready to print. There are many sources on the market that will provide these surfaces. Some fabrics come 8.5 x 11 and have a paper backing. These printable fabrics can be fed into the printer like any paper.
This is the easiest way to print on fabric. You create your image, (of course you can go to my web site at www.kathyanneart.com and download an image) and then pop the paper into the printer and print. Simple and wonderful, an image will dry quickly and you can almost instantly use it in the artwork it has been intended for. In my where I shop section there are some sources for printable fabric. These images have been printed on fabric that is ready to print.
