Bubble jet set for printing

I have used this quite often before I found the packaged individual sheets. It works very well, but is time consuming and a bit messy. Once I have printed on the fabric with BJS I use the rinse which I bought at the same time.

I pre used the BJS -- I usually did about a yard square (or meter) and then I cut it into page size pieces (8.5 x ll") and pressed the fabric onto a piece of Butcher paper. Make sure you press it onto the
butcher paper so that it sticks, especially at the corners. The print your picture on the sheet - and once you have removed the completed picture (after waiting at least 30 minutes, carefully rinse the printed fabric with the BJS rinse.

Once I found the sheets I started using them and only use the Bubble jet set if I don't have any sheets
of photo fabric. It is so much less work, and if you make sure you use up the whole sheets at a time with different images (see the post above) it isn't really that much more expensive.

I do a lot of sets of different subjects. Including buildings, old houses, (pictures taken on our trips around Calgary - animals, - whatever I need. The peony filled a whole page and I plan on doing a group of smaller ones on a page. I have already printed some of my 'anniversary roses' I received for my birthday from my family - and will include them in the floral wall hanging (at least that is what I plan on doing now -)grin.
