    Hi.

    I have heard of flock that you can print using dye sublimation, but not by printer!

    It is as it says and will work with your VersaCamm no problem, easiest way to describe the material is it is not as hairy as cadcut flock 🙂

    there is printable carpet so i cant see why not flock.

    i was sent a free roll a few years ago to try, but even although we all like a good sh@g on our carpets, 😮 this wasn’t going to through my machine by a long shot. 😕 :lol1:
    anyway, it obviously works on some machines so if the material is receptive to the inks and enough clearance for the head etc then i guess it will work.

    from memory my concern was mainly fibres. we know about static build up so surely the fibres etc are going to get everywhere and clog the heads and other areas.
    "for the record" i do not mean the material nigels talking about, im talking this carpet i was sent as it was about 10mm easy.

    I printed some Target Transfer flock a couple of years ago and the results were very inpressive. The detail was well reproduced with nice sharp edges and colour was well matched. I would say very good for small badges logos but not what I would think of using for text.
