I wonder if you can help me.
I am looking to find someone who can print an invitation – but on silk not on card. Any ideas who can do this for me?

    Printing on Fabric

    Betsy Szymanski (c) 1997

    Using an ink-jet printer, you can print directly on fabric to create labels, fabric foundations, or custom fabric designs. Don't try this with a laser printer though - they get too hot.

    Cut a piece of fabric and a piece of freezer paper approximately 10" x 12". Iron the freezer paper to the wrong side of the fabric. Trim to 81/2" x 11". Load the stiffened fabric into your printer. Be sure to load it so that the printing will be on the fabric side, not the paper side. After printing, let the ink set for at least 24 hours then remove the paper and heat set the ink for 1 minute with a hot iron.

      *If it's a lot of invitations, you could try someone who does screening. For them, it seems like it should be the same as printing scarves.
