Inkbloom - cool from your printer!
Just discovered inkbloom (via Skip to my Lou). It's a system that provides a way to print on fabric and vinyl with your inkjet printer. They sell LoomTack, the base that adheres to the back of your fabric, and you can also purchase downloadable designs (inkbits and inkblocks) from them. There's a nifty demo video on their site, and if you join their mailing list, they'll send you some free downloadable designs with a "love" theme!The products to the left were all covered in custom printed fabric. The inkblocks automatically repeat so you can create any size image (up to the limits of your printer). Very interesting product with lots of potential for crafters, scrapbookers, and quilters.[Edited to add: At this time, inkbloom only sells within the US. Apologies to my Canadian readers (although you can get on their mailing list and they may start selling internationally in the future.]
