Specific inkjet printer for fabrics
  • I am new to the fourm but have 40 years in the textile field. I want to purchase an ink-jet printer to print on the various paper backed fabrics available from the several manufactures of these products. So I have been looking at Epson and HP in paticular. I am still in dark on which ones will successfuly handle the paper backed products from the standpoint of feed and jamming. What do you know? I am willing to spend $500 to $2500 on the correct printer with a format of standard size paper backed fabrics to the larger sizes up to 24". I am looking for specific recomendations. You can e-mail me if you want more information on what I am trying to achieve. These fabrics are for art not wearables.
    Thanks, John Gunther
  • John I have an HP photosmart C5180 and I just tried the paper backed silk with the regular ink and they are beautiful. I don't know how to fix them I thought they are already treated so I ironed them and the printer only prints so large but they are very nice.
