Default Re: Those who wanted my printing ribbon method

It worked fine, but sometimes if the ribbon isn't firmly attached to the paper, it would jam.
For those of you who completely followed the instructions, can anyone try it without treating the ribbon at all and see if there is a difference?
I wonder what the purpose of treating the ribbon is?? I would think you would want a nice, clean fabric to dye without anything to interfere with the adherence of the dye to the fiber, KWIM? And the heat sets the dye.
