One of the things we have been most excited about since our Glowforge arrived was exploring how we can bring together laser cutting and sublimation. After extensive testing, we’re excited to bring you the first video in this “Glowforge Sublimation” category: a comprehensive guide to sublimating on acrylic. Truly, there’s a lot we had to figure out when learning how to sublimate on acrylic, and this video brings together all of our BEST tips to ensure that you get your BEST sublimation on acrylic.
