What is the best material to use on mugs?

Which vinyl is best 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.
Can you use iron-on vinyl on mugs?
First, we made sure our iron-on vinyl design fit on our mug. Make sure you have a towel on hand because your mug will get hot! Apply the heat no more than 5 seconds at a time, and in between heat cycles use your squeegee or credit card to make sure the HTV is sticking and smooth on your mug.
What material does iron-on vinyl work best on?
HTV works best on cotton or polyester or cotton/poly blends. Other synthetic fabrics, like acrylic, won’t work correctly because they will melt under the heat of an iron. For more advanced crafters, you can apply HTV to mugs, baseball hats, footballs and even wood!
