Heat Transfer Vinyl (iron on vinyl, t-shirt vinyl, or HTV) is a similar material with a heat-activated adhesive that is designed to work with fabric surfaces (or any surface that can stand the heat). Both types of vinyl are available in either rolls or sheets, usually 12″ wide.
Can you use permanent vinyl with the Cricut mug press?
The Cricut Mug Press is no-fuss, easy-to-use machine that you can use to make mugs that are permanent and dishwasher/microwave safe. No more carefully hand-washing your mugs or worrying about peeling vinyl!

Vinyl will always be reliant on the adhesive and excessive heat from a microwave or dishwasher will weaken it.
Can you use a heat gun on permanent vinyl?
TIP: Use a hair dryer or heat gun on the surface of the vinyl while applying it to the surface of the wood. It will help the vinyl conform to the slightly uneven surface a little better. You can also try using a tennis ball to rub the vinyl while you apply the heat, rather than a squeegee.
Does Cricut vinyl stay on mugs?
You need permanent adhesive vinyl in a color to go on your mug. You’ll also want standard grip transfer tape to get the vinyl onto your mug’s surface.

How long do you heat press a mug?
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 transfer an image onto a mug?
- Select a mug for the project.

What type of vinyl do you use on glass?

Is premium vinyl the same as heat transfer vinyl?
I am used to calling them adhesive vinyl and heat transfer vinyl! Despite the different names, Cricut’s products work just the same, and are a premium vinyl.
Why is my vinyl not sticking to shirt?
Time- Pressing or ironing for too short a time can cause HTV not to stick to your shirt. HTV works by using a heat activated adhesive so too little time and it won’t heat enough to stick. Too long and it can actually burn the adhesive off. Temperature- Not all vinyl applies at the same temperature.
Can you use printable HTV on mugs?
NOW that I found these, I can finally use them on cups, tumblers, cars, windows, etc. Pretty much anything that can hold a sticker. This is the first cup I made using the waterproof printable vinyl. The design I used is Mom’s gonna snap SVG/Clip art design and a white mug from Target.
Can you heat press 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.
