7 of the Best Valentine’s Day Sublimation Designs for Your Classroom

Valentine’s Day is a festivity that rolls around every February to celebrate love, friendship, and admiration. It’s the perfect time of year to spread love and gratitude to your friends, family, and students, even helping your students do the same!

Whether you want to help your students create Valentine’s Day gifts for their loved ones or pass a token of gratitude to your students, sublimation can be the perfect way to do it. The options are endless – from adorable mugs featuring cliche yet cute sayings to colorful greeting cards that share the love. 

7 Design Ideas to Share the Love

If you’re ready to spread love, friendship, and admiration in your classroom by creating beautiful items, there’s no shortage of design ideas. But coming up with those ideas can be challenging, so we’re here to help. Here are seven of our favorite Valentine’s sublimation design ideas to wow your students, friends, and family when the holiday arrives:

  1. Love-Themed Mugs With Cute Sayings

It’s hard to go wrong with a cozy, love-themed mug. Pick your favorite cliche saying, such as “Love you a latte,” and paste it on a pastel pink mug. Or, add heart-shaped light strings wrapped around the mug, a simple design that communicates love without being too over-the-top. 

  1. Customized School Bags 

Customized school bags are the perfect canvas for a Valentine’s Day design. Add adorable line-art hearts and swirls, adding splashes of vibrant pinks and reds across the bag. You could even add a thick brushstroke of red or pink as a backdrop, adding a heart lined in gold atop it. 

  1. Printed T-Shirts

T-shirts are a go-to pick for customizable designs for all holidays, including Valentine’s Day. They’re simple and practical and can be adorned with all sorts of designs. Paste an adorable teddy bear clutching a heart with a personalized message or a fuzzy baby animal clutching a rose. The options are nearly endless – go with something personalized to communicate feelings or something simple to keep creating items for your students’ loved ones easily. 

  1. Printed Tumblers

Add a splash of color to a plain tumbler, incorporating a wash of pink or red. Spice things up with a gradient hue fading from red to pink, or add sprinkles of gold and gold lettering with a personalized message. 

  1. Colorful Greeting Cards

If your students are exchanging Valentine’s Day gifts, colorful greeting cards can be your contribution to the mix. Create customized greeting cards on business cards, or print multiple designs on a single sheet of paper and cut them into smaller cards. Pick a design that reflects your preferences, from adorable Valentine’s Day-themed sayings to vibrant hearts. 

  1. Fun Puzzles

Puzzles are an entertaining activity to fill the day, whether your students need something to do during a snowy or rainy recess or something to use in your classroom’s reward system. Around Valentine’s Day, swap out your puzzles for fun-themed puzzles with love-centric designs, such as a cute saying or design. Animals holding vibrant-hued hearts are a great option if you’re looking for a more complex design to stimulate your students’ minds. 

  1. Printed Keychains and Lanyards

Many folks tote their keys around with them every day, driving to and from work, running errands, and going to appointments. Since they often have their keys on them, creating a love-filled keychain or lanyard is a perfect way to communicate your love and gratitude. It could be as simple as a red heart on a gold or white background with the person’s name on the other side.

These tumblers are not only a great way to show your loved ones that you care, but they are also a practical gift that they can use all year round. So why not spread some holiday cheer this season with a customized glass sublimation tumbler?

Create a completely custom design in your favorite digital art software or purchase a ready-made design from an online craft store. Once you pick your designs, start crafting! Here are a few glass sublimation tumbler ideas to get the creative juices flowing!

1. Festive Snowman

Create a cute snowman design with a carrot nose, black hat, and red scarf on a white tumbler for a festive holiday look. Or, start with a clear glass tumbler. Start with an unfilled red, green, silver, or gold circle and position the festive snowman in the middle. 

You could even add a splash of holiday cheer by creating a festive wreath teeming with ornaments, including a little snowman. Or, use your wreath to draw the eye to an adorable snowman nestled in the middle, almost like a window peeking into a winter wonderland.  

2. Merry & Bright

Add the phrase “Merry & Bright” in a fun font and surround it with colorful holiday lights or ornaments for a cheerful design. Or, add an old-fashioned or cartoon-style Santa to spice up the mix, letting his cheery, smiling face add warmth to the design. 

Add a splash of contrast with gold or silver metallic flecks or snowflakes meandering down the glass. 

3. Winter Wonderland

If you enjoy the holidays but want to steer clear of a Christmas-themed glass, consider our winter wonderland glass tumbler idea. 

Create a beautiful winter scene with snowflakes, trees, and a cozy cabin on a light blue or white tumbler for a serene winter wonderland look. Or situate a dimly lit cabin, illuminated only by Edison lights strung across the front porch, in the middle of a deep blue circle to create a focal point. 

You could even skip the cabin idea altogether and focus on the beauty of the snowy mountains, highlighting the craggy peaks in the background with snowy trees flanking the foreground. Situate an icy lake in the middle, and let a few snowflakes fall softly. 

4. Naughty or Nice

Add the phrase “Naughty or Nice” in a playful font and surround it with cute holiday icons like candy canes or mistletoe. Spice up the design with gold elements, like outlined letters or icons. Add a splash of contrast by starting with a solid white or red tumbler and incorporating a white ornament to help your designs pop.

5. Ho Ho Ho

Create a fun and festive design with the classic “Ho Ho Ho” phrase in bold red and green colors, surrounded by holiday designs like presents or snowflakes. If you prefer to stick with a white and blue theme, set the saying across a brushstroke of wintery blue and outline the white letters in a silvery finish. 

6. Name Prints

Adding names to the tumblers is a great way to keep track of which one belongs to each person. Tinker with different fonts and colors to find a beautiful combination that matches your and your loved ones’ aesthetics. Whether you prefer a metallic sheen of silver-lined text or bright pops of blue, red, or green, name prints are versatile enough to match anyone’s preferences. 

7. Themed Designs

If you’re gifting glass tumblers to your family and friends, you don’t necessarily have to stick with a Christmas theme. While the Christmas theme can be a great way to inspire holiday spirit, you can branch out and incorporate other fun themes. 

For example, suppose your friend loves baseball. Create a fun design with baseball bats, baseballs, and mitts. Add splashes of their favorite colors to spice things up, or tie in the logos of your friend’s favorite baseball team.  

Or, if your mom enjoys gardening, add an adorable cartoon succulent nestled in a brightly colored pot. Add a brushstroke of blue across the backdrop to add a splash of color. Or, you could even incorporate a Christmas theme alongside the gardening focus by adding Christmas lights to a little potted tree. It’s up to you!
