geometric sublimation pouch

Unlike iron-on or heat transfer vinyl’s, sublimation transfers your design into the fabric or substrate rather than pressing on top of your surface.

Step 1

Size your image (or design) to fit your substrate; then print from your Sawgrass™ printer onto sublimation paper.
TIP: If there are any words or direction-oriented aspects in your design, be sure to mirror before printing.

Step 2

Use heat resistant tape to attach the printed design as desired onto your pouch with the ink side facing the surface.

Step 3

Lay your pouch on top of your heat resistant mat and insert a piece of cardstock inside your pouch to prevent bleeding to the back as well as protect your mat from any excess ink. Smooth out your pouch with your hands.
TIP: Use a lint roller over the area where you want your design to remove any dust.

Step 4

Place a sheet of butcher paper on top of your pouch and preheat the fabric for 15 seconds to remove any moisture. Remove the butcher paper as set aside.

Step 5

Place your printed design where desired on your pouch with the ink side facing the surface. Use heat resistant tape to hold in place; then replace the butcher paper over your design.
TIP: When working with more than one layer, you will want to heat one layer at a time. Be sure to cover the already heated part of your design with butcher paper to prevent re-activation of the ink.

Step 6

Carefully heat press your design with gentle pressure for 40 seconds and remove the transfer sheet.
TIP: Be careful not to shift the design in anyway while heating to prevent “shadowing” or any other unfavourable results.

Step 7

Accent your design with crystals. Add a dab of glue to your pouch then place a crystal on top and let dry.
