        The easiest solution I have would be to print the color design on
some heavy paper(i.e. 100lb text).  Then have that paper laminated on one
side - the image side.  The other side (back side) would remain uncoated
and unlaminated.  Once made you can use the one-side laminated paper as you
would any book cloth.

        As an alternative you could reach LBS in Iowa.  They have a cloth
they call DigiTex. It can be printed on by using "digital printing
equipment," such as a Webb press.  They will sell as little as 25 cut
sheets (all the same size) or a 50 yard roll.  There URL is
