Sublimation Materials

Sublimation Compatible Materials

Even though sublimation has been around for years, it only recently exploded in popularity thanks to the new affordable sublimation printers on the market as well as the introduction of Siser's EasySubli® HTV and Sublimation Markers. Aside from EasySubli and Siser Glitter, it was thought that there weren't any other materials that sublimation could work with. The brilliant crafters on Youtube, Facebook, TikTok and Pinterest have helped push us to try our other materials with sublimation inks. What we found was rather surprising! Below is an ever-changing list of Siser materials that can help take your sublimation designs to a whole new level! Check it out and give some a try - after all, experimentation is everything in the decorating game.
