Enamel camp mug for sublimation with metal rim and handle. Blank, glossy white finish.
***Directions*** PLEASE NOTE: Equipment varies, and so may your required settings. Please test your own equipment using these baseline recommendations.
Apply sublimation transfer on the surface of the tumbler using heat tape. For full wrap designs, make sure you pull the transfer as tightly as possible around the tumbler, then tape very well along the seam and around the top/bottom of the tumbler. Pulling the tape/transfer as tight as possible with no air pockets. If your transfer does not fully cover the tumbler surface, apply blowout/butcher paper to the entire tumbler so that there is no metal showing on the sides.
Camp mugs should be pressed two at a time! (one on each end of the tumbler press) If you're only needing to add a design to one mug, put a blank mug on the other side of the press to ensure even pressure and heat distribution while pressing.
Insert a camp mug into each end of the tumbler press attachment and place the handle as close to one side of the opening as possible. Pressure should be light but evident, using about two fingers to close and open the press. Press at 360 for 90 seconds, then turn the handle to the other side of the opening and repeat the press.
Remove the hot mug from the press and carefully remove the transfer paper. Let the cup cool before handling.
*Sublimation does NOT require the use of any sealant. It is recommended to handwash all cups/tumblers to ensure the images remain their most vibrant.
