Artesprix Sublimation Rainbow Shirt

Hello crafty Artesprix friends Ivy here. I’ve been loving all the fun rainbow prints and designs I’m seeing recently but I noticed a lot of them are traditional, pastel or "girly" colors.

I wanted to create a sublimation rainbow shirt for my son and that’s when I had the idea to make it in different shades of blue.

Sublimation TShirt

What are sublimations markers?

Artesprix markers enables you to draw on regular paper and transfer on to sublimation blank materials such as totes bags, bookmarks and keychains and more.

To Create this Tshirt, you will need the following: 


Sublimation Markers-Black Broad tip

Heat Press or Regular Iron

Heat Tape

Protective Paper Roll



Electronic Cutting Machine

Tee Square It

  1. The first step is to use an electronic cutting machine to draw the image using an Artesprix marker. Set your image on “draw” mode. Insert Artesprix marker and watch it go to work. Don’t forget to “reverse” the image when you send it to draw.

  1. Next is the fun part! Color the image in I used all the different shades of blue in all the Artesprix packs. I just mixed and matched there’s really no right or wrong way I was going for an Ombre look.

  1. Once you are finished coloring, turn on the heat press and set the temp to 370℉.

  1. Place the shirt on the heat press and use a lint roller to remove all the lint. Press for 10 seconds. This will ensure all the moisture and wrinkles are removed.

  1. Take the protective paper and measure enough to cover the top and bottom of the T-shirt. Also cut another sheet to put in between the shirt so you can prevent any ink transfer.

  1. Use a Tee Square It to help align the shirt and make sure it’s perfectly centered.

Once you like where its placed, use the heat protective tape to keep it in place.
