What design software should I use for sublimation?

I suggest starting with the software you already know. Although most professional sublimators use an Adobe or CorelDRAW product, many new folks in sublimation are using Silhouette software that works just fine. For folks that don’t own or know how to use any of these programs, I recommend CreativeStudio. CreativeStudio is a cloud-based designer with Corel-like features that is bundled with the purchase of Sawgrass Virtuoso printers.
