What temperature do I set my heat press for mugs?
Place mug in heat press at the pressing temperature of 380-400F, and close the element around the mug. Press for about 4-5 minutes using medium to firm pressure. If the image begins to look blurry, or burnt brown by over- pressing, decrease pressing time by 15-30 seconds.
How do you heat transfer on a mug?
Turn the iron on and set the heat to the cotton or linen setting (about 400-425 degrees F). Weed away any extra vinyl and position the design on your mug. Place your dishcloth over the heat transfer vinyl and press down with your iron in one single spot for about 10-15 seconds until the vinyl is really well stuck.

What kind of vinyl do you use for mugs?
651 is great for mugs because of it’s permanent adhesive strength – however keep in mind it’s not considered dishwasher or microwave safe so you’ll want to hand wash. After applying 651 vinyl to a mug be sure to let it cure (sit) for about 48 hours before washing. This just lets the adhesive come to full strength.
What type of paper is used for mug printing?
Mug printing requires a specialty paper known as sublimation paper. It has a coating that allows for ink absorption onto the material, such as your mug. It’s also important to use sublimation ink as well as polymer-coated mugs so the design transfers accurately.
Can I sublimate on a mug twice?
FAQs – Can I sublimate a mug twice? You can sublimate the mug any times you want. It won’t damage the mug, but remember that the existing image will ghost when it’s reheated. It is great if you want to use the mug for testing printing effect or practicing on sublimation printing.
