Step-by-step Guide

Time: 12 min
Step 1
Choose a pattern you like and print it out using a sublimation printer. You can design the pattern yourself or find one directly from a graphic design website like Canva. Just make sure adjust the pattern to a suitable size (a size that can perfectly fit the whole blank project) on the A4/letter size canvas. Please remember to mirror the image before printing.

Step 2
Cut the pattern out and cover it on the blank key chain or coaster. Make sure the pattern is right placed where you want. For the key chain, there is a protective film on the surface and you need to peel it off first.
