How to Sublimate on Oracal 651 Adhesive Vinyl

Experimenting with crafting is one of my favorite things to do, and marrying my vinyl cutting machine and Sublimation is equally rewarding. Today we are showing you how to combine Sublimation with vinyl decals to think outside the box and try out something new.


love this

Wow I had no idea, thank you…this opens up so many options for me

This is really cool! If we were to apply this to a glass how waterproof would it be? Clearly hand wash only because of the permanent vinyl but could it get wet or no? my brother has Growlers he wants me to put something on but the design is soo complex simply using 651 it would not be durable so looking at other options.


Thank You!!!

Can I sublimate something and then cut it? I am wanting to try this, instead of hunting down printable vinyl. Just not sure if that would work. Thank you for a very clear tutorial :slight_smile:

Thank you so much for this! I can’t wait to try it out!

This is pretty cool. Any idea how well it would hold up as a car decar? Will these be waterproof?

Never even thought this could be done! I’m new to sublimation
