How To Print On Fabric

How To Print On Fabric Using Freezer Paper
~ please read all instructions before you begin ~

1. Cut a piece of fabric so its the same size as a piece of paper. 8.5 x 11

2. Cut a piece of freezer paper the same size. 8.5 x 11

3. With a heated iron (medium to high heat) press the fabric to the shiny side of the freezer paper. I find that the fabric adheres better if ironing on a flat hard surface rather than a padded ironing board. I use a thin flat towel to cover my countertop and use that as my ironing surface, but use caution as you could scorch your countertop.

4. Once the fabric is adhered to the freezer paper, check for stray threads and trim away any excess fabric that isnt bonded to the freezer paper along the edges.

5. Place the fabric sheet in the paper tray of your printer, its best to have some other paper below the fabric sheet it just helps the fabric sheet to feed thru better.

6. Now print your image.


Youll probably have to play with the settings on your printer to achieve the quality youre after. Once you figure out what works best, I suggest that you write it down so youll know for next time.


A Note About Ink:

Some inks for inkjet printers are not colorfast so youll need to test that out, you dont want your project ruined if it should get wet.

I use an Epson printer and Epson Durabrite ink which is permanent. Ive even washed the printed fabric and it still looks great!


A Note About Freezer Paper:

Freezer paper is found in most grocery stores in the same aisle as foil, plastic wrap, etc. Make sure it says FREEZER paper. Do not use wax paper, its not the same thing and wax paper wont work.

I like to use pre-cut 8.5x11 sheets of freezer paper. It really saves some time. I buy mine from www.cjenkinscompany.com They also have pre-treated printable fabric and fabric sheets.


The Fine Print:

I have never had any problems using this method of printing. However, I will NOT be responsible for any damages that may occur to your printer by using this method of printing. If you follow these directions you are printing at your own risk.


Happy Printing!!
