Other people’s opinions:
I checked out reviews from Amazon.com and Overstock.com and overall they received really great reviews.
Both site’s reviews gave the product four and a half stars. Everyone that used it found it really easy to use and thought the pictures came out great.
There were some comments that stated after a few washings the picture fades.
I tried the Printed Treasures printable Iron-on fabric on a pillow project.
I created a Memorial Pillow for by friend when her dog went up to the big doggy park in the sky. I loved that dog!
I printed the picture with no problems, I started with an image that was a bit blurry but it came out just like the picture.
The back was easy to peel off and once you iron it down it’s completely stuck. I didn’t notice any issues with fading but, I gave it away, so I really didn’t get to see how it was washing it.
For my project I was going to be putting a light picture on a dark pillow, the fabric was black with red and white writing (love in cursive). The picture of Jake was really light because he was white.
- I ironed the picture onto a white pillow case first.
- Cut it out.
- Then I took the cutout picture and sewed it to the fabric with the dark background.
- This prevented the black fabric pattern to show through the picture. This totally worked! It was an extra step but if you’re using a strong pattern it helps the picture pop.
- I also added a little boarder. When your ironing on a thicker piece of fabric the printed picture is not flat it is a bit stiffer and more raised than the fabric your ironing on, so the border gives it better transition.
I really like this product. I would totally use it again for future projects.

The Jake Pillow for my friend Dianne
- This product is great for pillows and quick personalized projects. Would also be great for quilts.
- Read the directions carefully and follow the directions.
- If product looks old it probably is, the quality might not be as great. There should be no yellowing or peeling.
- Make sure you are familiar with how your printer feeds. To insure it picks up the paper correctly.
