Love is All You Need Tote Bag:

  1. Go to the "Blank Products" tab in CreativeStudio and click on the “Tote Bag” Icon then scroll down to “canvas shopping bag.”  

  1. Go to the "Designs" tab and click on the “Valentine’s Day” Premium folder.  We’re going to use the “Bohemian Love” design. 

  1. Click on “Select All” in the top panel.  Resize and center the design, focusing on the image itself and ignore the background.   

  1. Click on “Select All” again to deselect. 

  1. Select the background and stretch it to fill the area.  You may walk to click on “lock aspect ratio” on the right side to make this easier.   

  1. Now we are ready to print, click on the "print" Icon at the top right the printer should be set on the Sawgrass SG 1000, paper size Tabloid, product “Polyester,” and change color mode to “vivid.”  Then, you will click on print.  

  1. If you want to place the design on both sides of the bag, when Sawgrass Print Manager pops up, go to the “Jobs” tab and change the number of copies to 2.  This will give you the same content to put on both sides of the bag. 

  1. Turn on and set your heat press to 400F and your time to 45 Seconds. 

  1. Run a lint roller over the bag to remove any dust or fibers before sublimating. 

  1. Place one design face down and center on the bag, tape down the printed design with heat tape on all sides. 

  1. Place the bag on the lower heat platen and cover the printed design with blowout paper and press for 45 seconds. 

  1. Once you remove the bag from the press, tape the second design to the second side and repeat the above step. 

  1. Slowly lift top platen and quickly remove the printed design.  😊 Enjoy!
