What to Use When Transferring Photos to Fabric
Hi Loretta, I don’t know what is currently on the market. As you know, I transfer photos onto fabric but I have a special fabric and printer we have been using for many years. The special photo blocks themselves are not available on the commercial market.
My advice is to check directions and make sure they are using the correct ink the recommended printer. Most fabrics are especially designed for use only with specific inks and specific printers. Other transferring processes only last for about half a dozen washes, then the photos fade.
If I can help, please let me know. Thanks!
