Who is ready for a new season of fun this year? We are so excited for the fall weather, pumpkin picking, and of course Halloween. Even though it may look a bit different this year, we can still celebrate our favorite holidays, pets included! With that said, we wanted to create a fun Custom Pet Bandana with our favorite Artesprix Sublimation Markers! Let’s dive in.

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. We really wanted the bats to POP on this one so we used the pastel orange and green to really enhance the black of the bats. Our dog, Pepper is ready to go for Halloween! Doesn’t she look cute?

Step 4.

Secure your design (face-down) to the front side of your Custom Pet Bandana Blank with Artesprix Heat Tape.

Design face down on the top of your sublimation sandwich.

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.

Step 5.

Create a “Sublimation Sandwich,” and place your blank (Custom Pet Bandana) between two pieces of protective paper.
