I do not have an inkjet printer, can someone recommend a source that I can send my photos to have them done for me.

I am working on a fly fishing quilt for my husband and I have four photos of him that I want to add to this quilt.

Thanks,

Carmel

Carmel, ask friends, go to a Kinkos or UPS Store, they might have an inkjet. Or, go to your Library, they might have one. More likely though would be a friend. This is kinda like Cash Cab TV show. "Call a friend".

Hi Carmel, it is nice to meet you.  

You could also try Staples or Office Depot, they have printing also.  Be sure to share a picture of your quilt when done.

Some of the quilt shops will do it for you as well.

Hi Sukochi:

Thanks for the advice, I tried Kinkos and the UPS store, they do not print on fabric any longer.

I found some iron on transfer paper for fabric. You use picture that is on your computer, or scan what you want to your computer, print it on this paper, and iron it on the fabric. It calls for an inkjet printer that allows you to flip images. Don't know if I even understand that.  It prints an 8-1/2" x 11" image.  I am going to call Avery, company who puts this paper out, and ask some questions, before I try it.

Carmel when I printed pics on fabric it took up a ton of ink.  It was the one and only time I did that.  It was so long ago I dont even remember how to go about doing it.  If you really need to do this Maybe you can find a used printer for low cost.  Good luck on you project.
