Re: Fabric Printing by Inkjet



Dear Raven and Janet, Do you know whether the Bubble Jet Set or freezer
paper transfers result in a transfer onto fabric that has more longevity
than the computer printer inks (Epson, for instance) themselves, which
typically are said to last about three years in exposed light (not referring
to possible new, more archival inks). Do they gain more lightfastness in the
process? Thanks for your help. Barbara
