Step by Step Subliflock Tutorial
- Create your design in Silhouette Studio. I’m using an Aztec Christmas owl (a request by my 5 year old)! Be sure to turn on registration marks.
- Print your design onto sublimation transfer paper. You’ll need to mirror the design, but don’t mirror it in Silhouette Studio. Instead, mirror the entire page using your printer utility so that the registration marks are also mirrored. On my computer (Mac) the window that pops open is shown below. All I did was check the box that reads “Flip horizontally”.
- After you print your design, you’ll transfer it to your subliflock. Put the subliflock (fuzzy side up) into your heat press. Put your printed design (ink side down) on top of the subliflock and cover it with a teflon sheet. Press at 375 degrees for 45 seconds. When you peel the sublimation transfer paper off, your design (and registration marks) will be on the subliflock.
- Now, load the subliflock into your Silhouette Cameo and using the registration marks, cut around the outside edge.
- Now, you’ll need to weed the excess vinyl. Subliflock weeds easily!
- You can either sell the design as an iron on, or apply it to apparel. If you sell the design, be sure to include application instructions for your customer to apply it with a heat press or iron.
- To apply the design to apparel, simply peel off the paper backing, put it in place and press at 325 degrees for 15 seconds.
- Here’s a closeup of the subliflock pressed onto a shirt. You’ll notice how it is slightly fuzzy!
