Sweet Christmas Gift for Neighbors and Friends:

  1. Go to the "Blank Products" tab in CreativeStudio and click on the “Kitchen & Dining” Icon then go to page 4. Scroll to “Oven Mitt” and click to select it. 
  2. Go to the "Designs" tab and click on the “Sweet Holiday” Premium folder.  Select the “Sweet Candy Cane Christmas” design.
  3. Click on “Select All” in the top panel.  Resize and center the design, focusing on the image itself and ignore the background. 
  4. Click on “Select All” again to deselect.
  5. 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. 
  6. Now we are ready to print, click on the "print" Icon at the top right the printer should be set on your printer, choose the paper size you will be using, set the product to “polyester,” and change color mode to “vivid.”  Then, you will click on print. Sawgrass Print Manager should pop up and click on print.
  7. Turn on and set your heat press to 375F and your time to 60 Seconds.
  8. Run a lint roller over the mitt to remove any dust or fibers before sublimating.
  9. A foam pad placed inside the mitt may stretch it and help you get the print all the way around the sides. Make sure the print is bigger than the mitt.
  10. Place your design face down and center on the mitt, tape down the printed design with heat tape on both sides.
  11. Place the mitt on the lower heat platen and cover the printed design with blowout paper and press for 60 seconds.
  12. Slowly lift top platen and quickly remove the printed design. 
  13. Fill the mitt with baking tools and a bag of cookie mix. Tie it all up with a ribbon – and include a cookie cutter in the bow!  😊
