"I’ve always loved projects I’ve seen others do but when my machine arrived I didn’t know where to begin. I found Jennifer Maker on YouTube and instantly subscribed to her channel and blog. Her teaching style was calming and easy to follow. When she offered her classes at the Maker Academy I had to sign up and am so thankful I did. Better than I ever imagined. I learned so much that day and the best part was I could now go back and replay the class pausing and doing my project with her. Jennifer, her team and everyone in her groups are so kind and quick to answer any of my rookie questions and help me when I feel stuck! I’ve found my family! Don’t hesitate....sign up now." — Sharon Kelly

"I love Jennifer Maker's tutorials and workshops!
She's very detailed and easy to follow step-by-step. I've watched several other people's tutorials, but always end up coming back to hers.
Jennifer’s workshops are a great way to learn new techniques. Even though I use a different machine than the Cricut used by Jennifer, I am able to make the projects by using the comparable operation for my machine. The tips given throughout the workshops are very helpful. — Shellie Reid
I got a new machine and didn't know how to use it. I did a lot of research and looked at many sites. When I found your site, I just knew this was the one. You and your team are amazing at getting back answering questions and you take the time to read and answer too! This is, by far, the best place for instructions, motivation, and creativity and it shows in your love and sincerity you project. — Betty Seifert
"I got a new machine a couple months ago and was scared to use it. You and your team and your tutorials have helped me to just "go for it." I am so happy that I signed up for all your workshops as I always learn new techniques. You are the best teacher and really care about your students. Thank you and your team for all you do." — Connie Selby
Got Questions? We've Got Answers!
Why should I enroll in Sublimation Startup rather than watch a YouTube video or read a blog tutorial?
This mini-course is designed for those who feel they need a little extra help understanding how to get started with sublimation, whether they already have a sublimation printer or are still shopping for one. You can ask questions and feel confident that you'll get help here! This mini-course is also great for those who enjoy learning from Jennifer's easy-to-understand, calm, and clear method of teaching. This is a no-fluff, no-mess, no-distraction workshop ... it's like sitting down with Jennifer in her craft room to learn directly from her!

How long is the mini course?
The course is split into three classes — a PRINT IT class (2 hours), a PREP IT class (2 hours), and a PRESS IT class (2 hours). All classes are followed by a Q&A session as well.
Do I have to have to use Facebook for this workshop?
No. All videos, files, and resources are stored in the Course Area in our Teachable school system, which does not share a login with Facebook.
What equipment do I need?
A computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone to watch the videos. All other equipment, such as a sublimation printer and heat press, will be explained in depth inside the course.
Do I need a sublimation printer for this?
No, you do not! I will teach you about sublimation printers and help you choose one IF you wish to get one. But I'll also teach you how you can sublimate without a printer!
And if you DO have a sublimation printer, I can teach you how to use yours better and how to troubleshoot issues (I have four sublimation printers -- a Sawgrass, Epson SureColor, Epson EcoTank, and Epson Workforce).
What software do I need?
We will use free software to design and print our sublimation designs, and this will be explained and taught during the course. You will want to watch, listen, and learn first, then follow along while watching the class replay.
What materials do I need?
If you'd like to make the course craft (a personalized sublimation notebook for recording all of your settings and notes that will become your sublimation BFF), you'll want some basic supplies -- there are MANY ways to make this notebook so it is accessible to those of you who want to buy a sublimation-ready notebook or just want to use basic, less expensive materials from Amazon, Walmart, Five Below, Dollar Tree, or even on something you may already have. Material lists for all variations are provided inside the course as soon as you signup! This is a project anyone can do, regardless of your budget or your access to supplies. You're going to be amazed at the wide variety of ways you can sublimate.
Will I learn how to make a sublimation design?
Yes! I will show you how to use FREE software to create a personalized design that fits your sublimation blank.
Will I be able to ask questions?
Yes! If you attend our classes live, you'll have the opportunity to ask Jennifer questions during and at the end of the class. And you can post in our Facebook group with the hashtag #sublimationstartup (so we can reliably find your question) and/or email us directly at email@example.com at any time!
Jennifer Maker's workshops and tutorials are some of the best available. Her instructions are clear and easy to follow. She even includes mistakes so we all can learn from them. Her upbeat personality makes it easy to listen and follow along. — Sondra Bryson
I would have never opened my box if I hadn’t first watched JenniferMaker videos and seen her ideas and passion for helping others. I can’t imagine the money, time and frustration I have saved because Jennifer already made those mistakes and learning curve for me. Because of her I see the capabilities. She’s so ingenious! — Mikki Ashton
I consider myself an advanced crafter but I was very intimidated. The good news is I invested in the Workbook and now I am a master of my machine! If I need to know how to do something, I just refer to her instructions. They are one pagers, very succinct and understandable. Throw any doubts away and join the club! — Barbara Shook
