What You Will Need

  • Siser Glow in the Dark HTV
  • Shirt any color or fabric that you like
  • Sublimation Ink
  • Sublimation Paper
  • Epson EcoTank Printer
  • Protective paper
  • Heat resistant tape
  • Heat press
  • Weeding tools
  • Cricut machine
  • Witch Image


Adding the Design to Cricut Design Space

  • Upload your image and add it to your canvas. Then make a circle the same size. You can use this circle to slice your image if it has some extra area around the outside that you do not want to print. Then I like to make the circle slightly larger than the image to cover up any alignment mistakes when sublimating. Then click make it!

Printing and Cutting

  • Next, you will print your sublimation image using sublimation ink, printer, and sublimation paper (don't forget to mirror your project!) Then cut the HTV using your Cricut machine. Weed away any excess HTV so you are left with just what you will press to your shirt.

Pressing the Glow in the Dark Sublimation

  • Now that all of your pieces are ready, it is time to finish this project! First, add the HTV to your shirt in the right location.
  • Press at 356 degrees F for about 5 seconds. You just want it to stick enough so you can remove the carrier sheet. Peel back your carrier sheet and discard.
  • Add the sublimation print on top of the HTV aligning it so that the print fits on top.
  • Then tape the sublimation print down well using heat-resistant tape.
  • Add a sheet of protective paper over the top and press at 356 degrees F for 25 seconds.
  • Once you are done pressing, carefully remove the sublimation print from your HTV. It will be hot so use caution.
