How to Print on Fabric at Home


Have you tried printing on fabric? It's just one of the many ways you can use your So Fontsy SVG designs. In this tutorial, we'll show you how easy it is to get started printing on fabric.

We printed these super cute Valentine's gnomes from the Staff Picks Design and Font Bundle.




Grab some light-colored fabric, such as white quilter's cotton.



You'll also need freezer paper.



Lay the wrong side (the back side) of the fabric on the shiny, waxy side of the freezer paper.



Cover with a piece of parchment paper, then iron. Make sure to iron over the entire fabric, keeping the fabric and freezer paper as smooth as possible. '

The freezer paper will adhere to the fabric which gives the fabric enough stability to run it through your printer. This isn't permanent though because you'll remove the freezer paper after printing.



Now, trim the fabric (with the freezer paper on it) to 8.5 by 11 inches for printing. You can use a paper trimmer for this.



Load it into your printer.



Now, open a design program you can print from on your computer, and send the image to your printer for printing. I chose my printer's "Best" option to get as vibrant an image as possible.




 Next, gently peel the freezer paper from the back of the fabric.



You can use printed fabric for so many different types of projects.



Here we quilted these adorable gnomes, added buttons and a bow, then put it all in a frame to make some super cute Valentine's Day home decor.
