Y’ALL! We are SO excited about this video. Sublimation has been our favorite craft so far, and we’ve wanted to put together the ultimate guide to sublimation for beginners. Overall, sublimation isn’t terribly hard–it just requires a decent amount of specialized materials to get started. But have no fear – if you’ve been curious about (or even overwhelmed trying to figure out) sublimation, this video and post is for you!

Start by watching the tutorial below that explains all the things about sublimation, from what is sublimation, and then discuss sublimation printers, sublimation inks, sublimation blanks (including where to buy sublimation blanks), heat presses for sublimation, sublimation safety and then round it out with some accessories we find necessary when sublimating–whether we’re sublimating on fabric like t-shirts or hard sublimation blanks. And of course, don’t forget that there’s a full list of all of the Just-Might-DIY-Approved sublimation materials below. So without further adieu, let’s dive in!
