Hello everyone! It’s that time of year again where
the country tries to raise as much money as
possible for Children in Need.

We’re here to give you some ideas for your fundraising endeavours!

Pudsey Bear appeared in 1985, and instantly transformed the Children in Need brand. He was created by BBC designer Joanna Ball, and took his name from her home town in Yorkshire.

As Pudsey is now the face of the Children in Need organisation, and is such a recognisable figure, we reckon he’d make a great design to help with your fundraising endeavours!

Here’s an idea we had:

We used – 

A5 Sublimation Jigsaws

Bulk Refill Ink

A Heat Press

HP230B Heat Press

Step 1:

Choose your image – or – Design your image

Step 2:

Print the image on sublimation paper, using your inkjet printer with sublimation ink.

Make sure your design is printed as a mirror image!

Step 3:

Place your image onto your sublimation item, and press using a heat press. We used our HP230B, a smaller Machine designed with higher pressure and high enterprise in mind.

Step 4:

Your sublimation item or sublimation paper will have recommended heat settings and pressing times for the best transfer, so be sure to pay close attention to this!

Step 5:


​Fresh off the press!

Don’t be afraid to get creative, you can sublimate a design onto so many things!

Here are a few more items we think would look great to help with your fundraisers:

  • Lunchboxes
  • Water Bottles
  • Mugs
  • ​Caps
