DIY Textured Coasters Sublimation Project!
Learn how to design a Fairy themed Coaster using Sublimation Markers!
We have been enjoying having tea parties at home with my daughter. She was wondering why her dolls didn’t have coasters like we do in our home. We decided to create fairy-themed DIY Sublimation Coasters that not only could we use for her tea parties but Mom would be happy to use as well! Let’s get started.
We absolutely love using these Heat Transfer Markers and every time that we create with them we are amazed at the end product.
The bright vivid colors that appear after using the heat press are always a delight to see. These adorable fairy coasters would be the highlight of a tea party or even to use in a little girls bedroom. I know we always have to have a glass of water on our nightstand and these coasters would be a perfect use for that too.

Fairy Themed Coasters Step-by-Step Tutorial:
Trace your DIY Sublimation Coasters onto plain copy paper with a pencil and use a stencil to create your design.
Color in your DIY Sublimation Coasters design using your Iron-on-Ink Markers.
Pro Tip: If you want color along an edge of your project, be sure to “bleed” the colors past the outline of the blank tracing.
Preheat your Artesprix Heat Press to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Secure your design (face-down) to the front side of your DIY Sublimation Coasters with Artesprix Heat Tape.
Leave at least 1-2 inches of space around the traced area so the tape does not so you have room to place the heat tape accordingly. Just remember, anywhere you place the tape heat your design will not transfer through thoroughly. Artesprix Heat Tape can also be used to fix any “oopsie,” on your design before transferred. Simply place a piece of tape over your, “oopsie,” and it will not transfer to your blank.
Create a “Sublimation Sandwich,” between two pieces of protective paper and place it in your Heat Press. Be sure your design is face down on the top of your Sublimation Sandwich.
Set your Artesprix press timer for 90 seconds.
After your timer has gone off. Use care to take out your Artesprix Textured Coasters – they will be extremely hot.
Be sure to turn off your heat source.
