What is Sublimation Iron-on-Ink? 
It is an interesting and fun product that allows you to create a design on standard copy paper that can then be heat transferred onto surfaces (must have polyester in it or have a polyester coating). Once the project is transferred to the blank, it is lifetime permanent. Before Artesprix, you would need a fancy printer to experience this level of personalization, but not anymore!

The nifty thing about the Artesprix Jewelry Pendant Blank is that you can use it to create a necklace, charm, or even a Key Chain like I did. So, I hope you will give Artesprix Sublimation products and blanks a try to create something wonderful! Grab your Jewelry Pendants before the month is over and we make room for August's Blank of the Month. 
Happy Day!
