- Printing onto Calico Fabric Using an Inkjet printer
- If you simply mix a normal packet starch for ironing clothes into a double quantity of mixture, then hot iron the fabric after it has been treated and dried, your fabric will become like a stiffness of paper and as long as the edges are clean (i.e.: without frays/ so cut after you have done the final iron) and it will fit into your printer, you can print straight on to the fabric. Let it dry, hot iron once again and then treat as you would any other fabric,.
