Something From Every Decade – Vintage Sublimation Designs

Who could go wrong with vintage style? From the Roaring 20s to the Electro-Pop 80s, everyone’s raving about vintage looks with a modern twist. Don’t be afraid to push boundaries with a touch of neon color or a futuristic print.

Sublimation Keychain Designs

Try the tag key chain, a customer favorite, which features a classic shape. With ample space, you can print several colors or patterns. Then, add your favorite photos or quotes to your sublimation design. On the other hand, you can opt for an authentic vintage feel with a geometric background and monochrome color palette. 

Ornament Sublimation Designs

Snowglobe Ornament

Speaking of nostalgia, you can’t miss our Snow Globe ornament. It takes you back to Christmas morning when you were a kid. So create a little sparkling world for your mantle, desk, or tree. There’s ample room to sublimate a photo and text on the base of this snow globe. You could even make a few for Birthdays or special occasions with our other designs.

Wild About Sublimation – Animal Print Designs 

Everyone goes wild over animal prints. Of course, we love animal prints too. After all, who doesn’t? You can easily incorporate this trend into your product line, from leopard print pumpkins to spotted trucks and animal print ornaments. You have so many options.

Sublimation Jewelry Designs

Go for a white leopard print Cuff Bracelet with a gray accent. These prints also look great with gemstone colors like a warm burgundy or emerald green. Add a monogrammed cheetah print on a bezel pendant for something more understated. With the right design, they can fit every style. That’s what everyone loves about animal prints.

Pet Tag and “Gotcha Day” Designs

Unisub bone-shaped ornament with a Gotcha Day sublimation design and a photo of a new puppy.

Also, don’t forget that animal prints are perfect for your furry friends. Create a sassy pet id tag for collars. Start by choosing a bone shape, heart shape, or circle shape. Then, opt for bold lettering to ensure their name and address stand out. On the other hand, you could transform it into a cute “Gotcha Day” keepsake ornament that your customers are sure to cherish.

Below, we’ve linked a few more templates to help you get started.

Who’s Got Game? – Sports Sublimation 

Of course, sports are always trending in the fall and winter seasons. With the football and basketball season well underway, we see a lot of sports designs, from photo ops at games to ornaments for the sports fanatic in the family. Don’t forget our customizable mini basketball hoop for the athletes on your list. It’s the perfect way to pass the time or let the little athletes hone their skills.  

Sublimation License Plates

One of our standout blanks this season has been our license plates and license plate frames. They’re perfect for a tailgate party. Help your customers show off their personalities while they cruise.

Trailer Hitch Cover Designs

Another can’t-miss sublimation blank is the trailer hitch cover, which makes the perfect Christmas gift. Print their varsity team logo and team slogan. Or you could dress it up for a fall wedding by sublimating “Just Got Hitched” along with a horse-drawn carriage.
