A word on the Jury process regarding what qualifies as a craft
Sublimation Printing and its purpose
The use of computer generated purchased fonts, free stock images, graphics (including registered logos and trademarks) applied to manufactured/purchased fabric clothing, totes bags, plastic drinkware, key fobs, pins etc. is exactly that --manufactured and assembled -- not a craft.
Use of the process as art and craft fair definition
An artist who has created the entire image by hand or a photographer who has taken the original photo, it is permitted to reproduce that image in print as a card, prints of various sizes, and other suitable materials. It includes having it available by sublimation process on fabrics for bags or clothing, ceramic drinkware, tiles and other objects because the person actually created the original image.
A graphic designer who uses silkscreening or sublimation printing to print their own designs, this is allowed on fabric, apparel and accessories
A mixed media artist/craftsperson can use sublimation printing if adding decorative artwork to enhance a piece that is handcrafted. Hand painting stencils on basic items changed in shape, finish or color is allowed.
