Sublimation Mousepad

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. 

For my mouse pad, I used a free graphic from Pixaby.com. It is a great site with many many images. I added my name using a free font from Dafont.com called Beneath Your Beautiful. 


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. 
Christina

  1. Both of your pads are amazing Christina! I have not dabbled into Cricut's infusible inks yet, but so want too. Don't know if I want to get as involved as you are, but would be cool to see how everything sets up, so I hope you do dust off that camcorder! Hugs, Brenda
