Dye sublimation onto rigid surfaces, especially mugs, can be quite difficult if you don't know all the ins and outs.
Luckily for you, West Rand Sublimation Supplies boasts with years of experience in the sublimation printing industry.
Firstly, ensure that you buy a quality coated Mug blanks from us.
Adjust the pressure of your press to medium and fully enclose the outside of the cup and set the temperature to 177 degrees celsius and the timer to 240 seconds.
Ensure that your artwork has been printed in RGB colours with our quality sublimation ink onto our Elite sublimation paper.
Use our quality heat tape to hold the print in place.
Wait for the heat press to reach temperature, place the blank with the rear of the print facing outwards into the press surface and close the press.
Once the preset time has elapsed, open the press and immediately remove the print from the blank. If the paper touches the blank again, you might end up with an undesired ghost image.
Don't hesitate to experiment on a mug blank first to ensure that your final product image is vibrant in colour and crystal clear.
