Artesprix Bag Tag

What are Sublimations Markers?

Artesprix markers enable you to draw on regular paper and transfer on to sublimation blank materials such as totes bags, bookmarks, keychains and more... The possibles are truly endless with Iron-on-Ink Sublimation Markers and your imagination!

To Create this Bag Tag, you will need the following:

  1. Bag Tag
  2. Sublimation Markers
  3. Heat Press or Regular Iron
  4. Heat Tape
  5. Protective Paper Roll
  6. Paper
  7. Pencil
  8. Light Box
  9. Sharpie Marker

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

1. Using a pencil trace the coaster on to a piece of printer paper.Trace you Bag Tag on plain copy paper

2. Write the sentiment using a black sharpie marker on one sheet of printer paper. I used a thick black sharpie to design what I wanted to trace onto my next sheet of copy paper. Thick black sharpie designs are easy to see though light boxes. Design what you would like to trace

***It is important to note that you can use a thin sharpie and flip over the design using the same sheet and color with Artesprix Markers on the other side*** I just didn't have a thin sharpie on hand so I used it as a reference. 

3. Flip the paper with a sharpie design over the light box and place the second sheet of printer paper and line up the bag tag. Use any Artesprix Red & Green Sublimation Markers of your choice to color in the sentiment. I added a few more deals to give it some extra flare! I love working with white blanks because the colors turn out so vibrant! Color in your design using Artesprix Sublimation Markers

4. Turn on the Atesprix Heat Press at 400℉ and 60 seconds.Bag Tag in Artesprix Heat Press

5. Place the Bag Tag face down to your Bag Tag and tape it with Artesprix Heat Tape. This will ensures that your Bag Tag will not shift during the heat transfer process. Remember your Bag Tag is double sided for double the fun Bag Tag taped face down to your Iron-on-Ink designBag Tag in Artesprix Heat Press

6. Once the Heat Press is ready we are going to need make a Sublimation Sandwich. Place one sheet of Protective Paper on the Heat Press, then place the bag with the design on top, then add another sheet over the bag tag.

***Make sure the Bag Tag design is faced down to your blank and on the top of your sandwich.***

7. Once your timer is finished take your Bag Tag off of the Heat Press and let it cool for a min or two. Use Heat Gloves to protect your skin or if you have oven mitts in your kitchen, those work great too

8. Peak Test time! Take a small peek to make sure the color is vibrant and the      image has transferred, if it didn't press it on again for another 10 seconds. Let the Bag Tag cool down before you peel and reveal your finished Iron-on-Ink Project.
