I’m in love…with sublimation!
It’s taken almost two weeks to get it up and running (some minor IT related issues) but now that it’s finally working, I’m really excited. I whipped up these two mouse pads in less than 30 minutes.
Scott wanted a mouse pad for work that had a photo of Ethan and me from graduation. I also used the same font to add 2020 at the top. I kind of wish I left that out, or used a thicker style font.
I made myself a mouse pad a few months ago using Cricut Infusible Ink, and I love it, but I wanted to do other projects using graphics and photos. That’s where sublimation came in.
I’ll create a separate post about sublimation and how I setup it up. You do have to have a dedicated sublimation printer, a heat press (I’m using my Cricut Easy Press), sublimation blanks (check amazon…amazing finds), and sublimation paper (I’ve seen people using regular copy paper, but I find the sublimation paper works better). I can go into more details in another post (or maybe a video…I’ll dust off the camcorder).
Have a great day.
