Help!

I successfully printed my fabric sheet, but now am having trouble removing the paper backing. It's stuck like a stuck on label you might find on a book or other object you've bought (and just can't remove that pricing label).

What's the best way to remove the backing sheet without damaging the fabric with my image on it?

CarolAnne,

try scratching the paper with a pin then folding on the line you make with the pin. You should be able to peel the paper off then.

I hope this helps.

Is this one of the sheets that you iron on? If so, I have had luck with re-heating it with the iron to get the paper off.

Thanks, Kris, I'll try that.

I did two sheets (labels for a quilt I made), and the second backing came right off.

No, Pat, it was a Printed Treasures fabric that goes through the printer.
