Get some injet transfer paper almost anywhere that sells computer supplies. Walmart and Kmart carry it, as do office supply places. Print your pics onto it and then put them on the lampshade material. This way you can print a number of pics on each sheet and it will be relatively economical as well as fast and easy. The current transfer paper gives a pretty good result and adheres to fabric well as long as the fabric is washed prior to putting the transfer on it.

How about paper? A lot of lampshades are paper, much of the strength is in the design and metal hoops.

As an alternative to printing directly onto the lampshade: Do a websearch for "decoupage lamp shade".
