I am in the market for a new printer and would like to get one that is good for printing photos on photo fabric. Does anyone have any advice on the best printer for this?
My HP seems to work well for this, but I don't have anything to compare it to.

I have HP as well, and have liked that, however there is one that does better. A friend has a printer that will print in better color. The same photos will look faded going through my printer compared to hers. I will find out later this week what she has. Maybe I can print the same photo on both and post a picture of the two of them later.
Hi me ach mom, I don't know anything about printers, but welcome to the group

I have both an HP and a Kodak and both do a pretty good job.
I have a fairly new HP All-in One that I am basically happy with, but recently found out that it and other new HP printers no longer can print custom sizes. It's a feature that you don't use often, but if/when you need it, you really need it! I recently was investigating Inklingo...a site for printing on fabric for hand piecing hexagons, etc....but found without custom sizes, you waste fabric. Now I am debating: do I forego Inklingo, buy another new printer, or settle for wasting fabric? (BTW, I checked with HP Cust. Svc and there is no work-around and no available replacement drivers. She noted the need, but had no solution for me at this time.)
So, if that is a possibility for you, I would be sure your new printer has the capability for printing custom sizes.
I have used Lexmark Inkjet printers for the past 8-10 years and have made 5 photo quilts for DGK's Graduation quilts and have been very happy with them. i have always used the Printed Treasure paper backed fabric sheets.
I need to make another one this year and just found out that Lexmark is no longer making Inkjets - are going strictly to Laser. I asked the Sales Rep if the laser would work and she said NO! I already had known that but figured maybe it had been a new advancement.
So my present Lexmark has been having problems communicating with some websites so I have been checking out other types. Costco seems to have mostly HP's and they are inkjets - will also check out the Canon.
Hate knowing that the Lexmark's will be history as they have been great and I have printed many, many pages through them.
Good luck in your search.
