monogram sublimation luggage tag

Create unique luggage tags with sublimation markers on everyday copy paper and transfer the design to any treated substrate!
Step 1

Use sublimation markers to create your design on everyday copy paper.
TIP: Trace a luggage tag onto the copy paper so you can create your design to scale, If you are using any words, it must be reversed.

Step 2

Place your design onto your surface, ink side facing down, and use heat resistant tape to hold in place.

Step 3

Preheat your EasyPress™ to the appropriate temperature for your material and, if needed, adjust the timer.
TIP: Click here for the Quick Reference Guide for sublimation heat press temperature settings. You can also use any other heat press or household iron to press your material.

Step 4

Place a piece (or two) of cardstock on top of your EasyPress™ mat, then your luggage tag on top of the cardstock.
TIP: The cardstock will protect your mat from any excess ink.

Step 5

Place another sheet of cardstock (or two) on top of your luggage tag (over the taped design) to protect your heat press.
TIP: Butcher paper is also a great tool to use instead of cardstock. You may need multiple layers depending on your design as this ink is very vibrant and may bleed through one layer.

Step 6

Carefully place your EasyPress™ over your design. Hold in place with gentle pressure.
TIP: Be careful to keep the EasyPress™ very still on top of your design. Shifting the design in anyway can cause unfavorable results, such as “shadowing”.

Step 7

Carefully remove your EasyPress™. Again, try not to move your design. Let it cool for about a minute or so and then remove the cardstock and copy paper.
TIP: You want to remove the copy paper in one smooth action rather than slowly removing as you would iron-on material. 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.
