I have a Canon Pixma Pro 100, which has worked beautifully for my purposes. I print a variety of sizes usually with Canon inks on Canon or Costco paper. My Wife is into quilting, sewing, and weaving to at least the extent I am into photography. A new complex quilt design required some prints on cloth. She found this product Jenkins Bubble Jet 2000.

Basically, you treat the natural fiber cloth, dry it, mount it on freezer paper and run it through the printer. The colors are quite good, ink use is modest, and the cloth feels normal after printing. The only problem we ran into was that the printer has a paper size sensor - one of half a dozen images, (the last needed to complete the job, of course) would not run. There is a setting in the advanced printer menu which will shut that feature off - either be very careful with sizes - not so easy, or temporarily shut the sensor down. I can think of a lot of non sewing uses for this process and its output.

Yup - have and tested cut to size samples of similar - just fine, several good ones on my desk. But like photography, people who are into fabric want what they want - cloth they have chosen. Don't have any financial connection to the company, but amazing.

You are most welcome. If she is interested, I'll PM a photo of the early stages of the quilt top. If she has EQ, she can orient the images to print as they will be applied to the quilt.
