  1. Go to the "Designs" tab and go to the “Feature Artist--Carina Gardener” folder.  We’re going to use two designs, so first choose the “Bloomsy Tumbler” pattern.  

  1. Click on the “Select all” icon on the top bar and then rotate the pattern.  You can do this with the rotate slider on the right tools menu or by using the rotate anchor on the design.   

  1. Once this is rotated, resize to fill the area.  Make sure to deselect your “select all.” 

  1. Go to the “Designs” tab and go to the “Feature Artist—Carina Gardener” premium folder.  You want to choose the “Altissimo” design and add it to the cover.  You will need to enlarge or move each piece of the design separately.  A “select all” would change the background pattern as well.   

  1. Now we are ready to print click on the “print” icon on the top right, choose your printer and set your page size to us letter, for the product change to “Polyester” then set color mode to vivid, click print. Sawgrass print manager should pop up click print.  

  1. If you want to place the design on both sides of the notebook, 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 notebook. 

  1. Turn on the heat press, set temp to 385F and timer for 40 seconds. 

  1. Let’s start with the back of the notebook place your sublimation print face up, line up the notebook add tape at the top and bottom then place the notebook on the lower platen with the sublimation paper face up, place another blowout paper on top, Press for 40 seconds.
