How do I make ink permanent on fabric?


I would like to stamp canvas tote bags with the kind of ink that you use with stamps and an ink pad. I would like to make the ink colorfast. Is there a trick to doing so? I know that when you dye clothes with a fabric dye that sometimes they recommend salt water to set the dye, but this is a different process. Any ideas would be welcome as I would like to give these as Christmas gifts. Thanks in advance for the advice.
