No steaming required!
Now, any photo or design can be printed directly onto silk fabric using a computer and Ink Jet Printer, or Ink Jet Copier. Results vary from printer to printer and ink to ink, and with different print settings, so plan on doing some tests!
Specially treated silk and cotton fabrics with a paper backing run smoothly through almost all brands of ink jet printers - home office models as well as commercial wide-format models. Also, if your printer prints banners, as many do, you can make scarves and pennants by using the rolls of printable fabric. The fabrics are treated so the results are water resistant, although not washable. The fabrics remain soft with no "feel" to the printing. Available in 10mm Habotai Silk and Cotton Poplin Percale, in 8.5"x11" sheets or 8.5"x10' rolls, as well as the the new 5.5mm Organza sheets.
It's as easy as this:
1. Create your design onscreen.
2. Put the fabric in the printer and print.
3. Allow to dry completely.
4. Peel off the paper backing.
Not washable. Not dry cleanable.
