Re: [BKARTS] Color laser printing on fabric



>...color laser printer to print or transfer an image to fabric
>....Has anyone tried this...

I've used t-shirt transfers made off a Canon color copier and applied them
to both fabric and paper. The carrier of the toner on the finished transfer
is TOUGH and creates a very "handle friendly" book if used for book cloth.
When adhering to paper, a dry mount press is best as the inevitable uneven
heat from a household iron can make the paper cockle unless you're working
pretty small.

I've never seen the same transfers available for home color laser printers -
just inkjet available locally.

with best wishes,
