Many creatives don't know just how much they can do with the
inkjet printers they already own. Using paper-backed, natural-fiber
ColorPlus? fabrics from Color Textiles, Inc. and some good sewing
equipment, enterprising owners of popular piezo and thermal inkjet
printers can make digitally customized pillows, purses, quilts, drapes,
doll clothes, ties and scarves, pillow shams, shower curtains, jackets,

The image of the Joshua Tree printed on this jacket was digitally
photographed by Color Textiles' co-founder Lee Newsom in Yucca
