Tips to Learn How to Make a Momma Bear SVG, Infusible Ink Shirt

This Infusible Ink that I made with the Momma bear SVG is VERY similar to my tie-dye sublimation tutorials with one very big exception: there’s not a shred of vinyl or sublimation. Someone who has never, ever made a shirt with sublimation before could totally tackle this project, even without a special printer or any of that. But, to get you on the right track, if you’re still a little unsteady, here are my favorite tips:

  • First, take a few seconds and check out this easy-to-understand video tutorial on my YouTube channel.
  • Whatever you do, use an Infusible Ink or sublimation-ready blank. Here’s why:
    • Infusible Ink will not bond with cotton. It might very well look like it did when you take the heat press off it, but when you wash the shirt (or whatever you used for your blank), the ink will rinse out and either fade super fast or just rinse out completely.
    • If you want to be super safe, you can just grab the shirts that specifically call out that they’re made for Infusible Ink. But if you’re wanting to go your own way, know that polyester, or those with a high concentration of polyester, will do the best at accepting the ink, making your design bright and flawless, even after repeated washing.
  • Always take the minute you need to put a sheet of parchment or butcher paper inside the shirt blank. There’s the potential that, if you skip this step, the ink (whether it’s sublimation or Infusible Ink) will bleed through the first layer of fabric and make a ghost image on the next layer.

Note: All of my free files are for personal use only. If you are interested in using my free files for your small business products you can get a commercial license in my shop. 1 license per freebie found on this site is what you will need.
