How to Sublimation Heat Transfer Ceramic Mugs with Sublimation Paper

                                How to Sublimation Heat Transfer Ceramic Mugs with Sublimation Paper

sublimation printing
    For the more discerning client fine bone china or porcelain may be a better choice. This is usually

only available in white but there are still a wide range of shapes and sizes to choose from. A discreetly

placed logo on the right design can reinforce the perception of quality that will be associated with that

logo.

1.Find a picture you like.

2.Make the right size of picture for mug.(The picture has been cropped, using template program)

3.Transfer picture by printer with sublimation transfer paper and sublimation ink.

4.Cut the imaging area with cutter.

5.All images must be tightly taped to the mug. We used a heavily weighted tape dispenser with our roll

of heat resistant tape.

6.Turn the press on.

   mug heat press
    Press the center button and use the up or down arrows to set the idle temperature. (305°)


    Press the center button again and use the up or down arrows to set the cook temperature. (385°)


    Press the center button once again and use the up or down arrows to set the cook time. (2 seconds

for 11oz mugs, 15 seconds for 15oz mugs)(Usually, in production, the press would be turned on and adjusted, first.)

7.Checking the Pressure


    When closing the press, we check for correct pressure each time since mugs can be slightly

different in diameter.


    Put the mug in the press making sure the handle of the mug is centered in the press when it is

closed.


    Start closing the press. When you start to feel resistance, take note of the number indicated by the

gauge (in the top picture the gauge is pointing to "4").When you completly close the press, the gauge

should not have moved more than one number higher (in the bottom picture the gauge is pointing to

slightly under "5").


    If the pressure is too much, immediately open the press. Turn the adjustment wheel (barly visible in

the bottom picture) counter-clockwise to loosen the pressure.

8.When the cook temperature (385°) is reached, the press counts down from the cook time and a

beep is heard.

9.The operator removing the mug after 92 seconds (it took 90 seconds to reach the 380 degree cook

temperature). The beeper sounded two seconds later.The glove is the ”Ove-Glove”, found at Walgreens and K-Mart.

10.The mug is very hot and pouring water into it stops the sublimation process fast.
     

     If the mug is left to "air-cool", it is possible for the sublimation to "drift" up the mug.


      Some put their mugs into a bucket of water. Neither method will hurt the mug.

11.Perfect done.
