Personalized Magnets for July 2021
Good morning. Nicole here! I'm excited to share these fun, summer magnets I created using Artesprix's Sublimation Markers and the Sublimation Ink Pad that is available in the shop. Now that it’s officially summer, I thought it was time to work on some fun summer projects. These magnets are super fun and I can’t wait to share how I created them so let’s get started!
What are Sublimation Markers?
Magic Ink that transfers their beautiful colors from plain copy paper to a polyester product with a heat source. Iron-on-Ink Markers are the way to personalize sublimation, which is specially formulated inks that transfer only when activated with heat.

Studio Forty Adventure Awaits Stamps
Plain Copy Paper
Heat Press or Home Iron
Step 1: Trace your Magnet four times onto a plain piece of copy paper using a pencil. That way you know how much space you have to work with.
Pro Tip: Set your heat press at 400℉ for 75 seconds before you start working on your magnets. That way, the heat press will be hot enough to sublimate your images when you are finished. :)
Step 2: Stamp images within the traced area using the Sublimation Ink Pad and Acrylic Block.
Step 3: Next, color in the images using your Sublimation Markers.
Step 4: Using heat tape, tape down the magnets (white side faced down) onto the images.
Step 5: Place a piece of Protective Paper at the top and bottom of your magnets. Place your "Sublimation Sandwich" inside the heat press for 90 seconds at 400℉.
Step 6: Carefully, remove project from heat press using gloves. Then place the magnets onto the Project Mat to cool down.
Step 7: Peek Test! Before removing any tape, peel back one corner of one of the magnets to ensure you got a good transfer. If you didn't, check your time, temperature, pressure, and Sublimation Sandwich and repress.
Step 8: Then, remove the paper and heat tape to reveal your vivid designs! Don’t forget to add the adhesive magnetic piece to the back of each magnet.
