V. Fabric

Q. Can inkAID be used to precoat fabric for printing?
A. Yes. inkAID can be used to coat fabric for a variety of purposes, including collage, banners, or stretched art. Any of the inkAID coatings can be used on fabric. inkAID coated fabrics are not intended to be washed as this will remove the coating and the print.
Q. What backing should I use to feed fabric through the printer?
A. A good method is to stretch the fabric on stretcher bars, coat with inkAID, dry, and trim. Once this is done you can use a "carry sheet" to move the fabric through the printer. 
Q. What is the best way to print on very thin fabrics, like silk?
A. Again, the use of a "carry sheet" is the best way to move light weight, thin materials such as fabric and paper through your printer. 
Q. How should I store my coated fabric?
A. Roll the fabric (surface facing out) around a 3-inch cardboard tube, then wrap paper around the fabric. Keep the fabric in a cool, dry, dark place until you’re ready to use it.
