Sublimation - Multipage print for T-shirt

 Eventually would like to try a full t-shirt print - I have a 15 x 15 press and I made a carboard  support for the t-shirt so that I can print at least the 13 x 19  print on a t-shirt - but I went with something almost  20 " wide and  24" long .   I created using word  for the size I wanted -  then used something called Posterazor  that splits up the  lage image to print on multiple sheets of 8-1/2 x 11  with overlay so you can piece them together - with the sublimation - you wont get lines when you print if matched correctly 

So I printed using various sizes  8-1/2 x 11 and  11 x 17   - was pretty easy for that part - when it came to pressing that was the challenge to manipulate that huge piece of cardboard around as you pressed 

assembly using heat tape - had to do some trimming to make the pattern match but lots of overlay to work with 

 fully assembled (I think 6 sheets ) 

after pressing - was really happy
