- Epson Eco-Tank with Hiippo sublimation ink
- Sublimation Paper
- Mini Press
- White cardstock (to protect the mat)
- White uncoated butcher paper (to protect the heat press — do NOT use wax paper, freezer paper, parchment paper, or a Teflon sheet)
- Heat-resistant tape
- Lint Roller
- Design #495 – My free Spectacular Lion design to help you test your sublimation ink and color (available in my free resource library—get the password at the bottom of this post)
