What We Suggest Printing Onto During Your Workshop…
You will need to purchase your own Fabrics / Stationery items to print onto. The Hire Kit does not include material to print onto other than practice fabric. We would suggest printing onto Tea Towels, Tote Bags, Cards, Tags or Cushion Covers. You can also ask your group what they would like to print onto and purchase the blank fabric or paper items alongside your Hire Kit.
