Page 11 of 32 • Spring 2019 • The Sublimation Report 11 By Lisa Ellston, JDS Industries 1. Sublimation Drinkware – Most products can be done in either a mug press or small convection oven. 2. Aluminum Sheet Stock – Testing with aluminum allows the user to get used to their heat press and the varying pressures. 3. Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) – This is a versatile product and is available in numerous precut products such as lug- gage tags, name badges, and keychains. 4. License Plate Frames – Use legal-size paper for the transfers since most license plates and frames are at least 11 1/2 inches long, which is too big for letter size paper. 5. Patches – Sublimating apparel can be tricky since there are so many variables to con- sider. Because of this, many beginners won't offer apparel. Patches are easy to sublimate and don't require any special equipment. IMAGE COURTESY JDS INDUSTRIES Best Sublimation Substrates for the Beginner 2019 L O O K C O O L . F E E L C O O L .
