Re: [BKARTS] inkjet printing on fabric



Hi

You need to be more specific.
It depends on whether or not your ink jet has a straight paper path
which will take a something rigid, like mat board.
Otherwise you have to mount the cloth of heavy paper.

Book cloth with a paper backing will feed if it is rigid enough.
Otherwise, like lighter, unbacked cloth you need to affix to something stiff
like a heave paper. I have used both tape and glue.
If the cloth is wrinkly, I iron it first.

As for the ink, I use the plain paper setting.
Also, you can coat the cloth with an inkjet receptive coating
using Inkaid, if you need a more photorealistic application.

Mainly you have keep the cloth flat and wrinkle free
and it works fine.
