Follow-up about printing quilt labels discussed at last meeting

Thank you, Dori, for sharing this information with the group, taken from a very seasoned professional quilter, Wen Redmond.

“Ink is usually permanent if you use a combination of the ultra bright or durabright inks on Inkjet prepared fabrics. You can find lots on Dharma catalog. I have found a digital product that works really well with lots of options and colors. You can find it on I do not trust bubblejet at all plus I think it is a very difficult product to use efficiently.”
