283 thread count fabric - EQ's Best Quality Wearable Weight Fabric Sheets

Print on luxuriously silky cotton fabric sheets with a thread count so fine that fabric texture will not be noticeable. You become a fabric designer as you scan in photos, flowers, love letters, or whatever. Then print, let dry, peel off the plastic backing and soak in cool water for 10 minutes. When the fabric dries, sew!

The warm white fabric makes photo-complexions glow. You'll be amazed at how beautiful your photographs look.

Use for those special wedding, anniversary and other memory heirloom projects that deserve the best! Complete instructions included. Washable and dry cleanable.

 

 

How to print onto Inkjet Fabric Sheets

 

1.

Prepare image for printing on your computer.

  • Scan in a photo or other image.
  • Use a digital photograph.
  • Or create a design using software.

take the picture

2.

Prepare fabric for printing.

  • Flatten any curl that may be in the fabric by weighting the fabric sheet down overnight with books.
  • Trim any loose threads from the fabric. Do not pull them.

 

3.

Adjust printer setting to Plain Paper (Use Thick Paper if printer has this option). The quality setting is up to you. Sometimes we find Best quality can put out too much ink. Normal quality may be a better setting, but each printer is different.

 

4.

Remove all paper from tray (use Manual Feed if available), and insert fabric one sheet at a time. Print onto fabric side of sheet.

5.

Let dry for 15 minutes after printing. (For Vivera inks one of our testers suggested allowing the prints to dry for 2 or 3 days, but this is up to you. You may also let them dry for 15 minutes.) Peel off plastic backing.

6.

Soak in room temperature water for 10 minutes. We recommend soaking in distilled water, since local tap water may have additives that affect the printer ink. If you notice ink bleeding, soak in a solution of one part fabric softener to three parts distilled water. The soaking is intended to remove excess printer ink, so keep the fabric moving by swishing it around in the water solution if you notice bleeding.

7.

Lay flat to dry. You may want to blot with a paper towel so that water does not pool on your printed fabric.

Cut and sew your picture block into a beautiful quilt!

  • EQ Printables Inkjet Fabric Sheets are remarkably soft! Your touch will tell you - these fabrics are never rubbery and are so soft they quilt just like regular fabric.
  • The smooth finish of our tightly woven 100% cotton sheet always produces a detailed, photo-quality image, as sharp as you'd see on paper.
  • Perfect for quilts, quilt labels, pillows, scrapbooks, purses, clothing and more because it's washable and dry-cleanable.
  • Gentle washing recommended, as for any fine quilt.

Owen Quilt

 

 

 

 

O.S.O. Sweet quilt by EQ staffer, Margaret Okuley, made with pictures of her new grandson Owen Sang Okuley, aged 6 months. Everyone at EQ met Owen, who was adopted from South Korea, via pictures Margaret's son posted on the Internet, and thought he'd make a perfect model for showing off our new fabric sheets.

 

 

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Wash gently by hand or machine, using a mild detergent. Do not use bleach. Lay flat to dry.
  • Iron on low to medium heat if desired. Hot irons can cause some printer inks to look muddy, so do not use a hot iron. You are not heat setting—ironing is only needed if you want to smooth wrinkles from the fabric.
  • Do not place in direct sunlight. The colorfastness of your image depends on how colorfast your printer ink is. All fabric will fade in direct sunlight.
  • Store unused fabric flat, in a closed package away from direct sunlight or other light sources. Keep out of hot
    and humid conditions.
 

TIPS

  • Since printers do not print white, the white in your image will be the same color as the fabric sheet.
  • You can snip off the corners of the leading edge of the fabric or fold masking tape along the leading edge to help it feed through the printer.
  • If the fabric does not feed smoothly through the printer, we suggest you clean your print rollers, according to your printer manufacturer's instructions for this. When rollers pick up paper or fabric lint, they can eventually not be able to pick up certain media (even though they may still pick up plain paper).
