Sublimation tumbler press is a specific variety of heat press that has been developed for the purpose of sublimating drinkware, including tumblers, mugs, water bottles, and other drinkware. It contains a heating element that encircles the tumbler or mug that it is attached to. In contrast to traditional heat transfers, sublimation printing with a cricut mug press tumbler uses a unique kind of ink that actually embeds itself into the fabric. This gives the printed images and graphics an even longer shelf life. Sublimation is only possible with the use of mug press for tumblers that can achieve the high temperatures and pressures required for the process.
Types of heat press for tumbler
If you intend to produce tumblers, purchasing the 30 oz tumbler heat press or 20 oz tumbler heat press is a good investment. It works really well with both the metal and the tumblers made of glass, and I really like the width that it has. Due to its expansive nature, it is possible to accomplish two things at once in many instances. Tumbler sublimation press is an excellent choice for your company if the majority or majority of the tumblers or cups that you sell is white or other light colors made of polyester. Your prints will have the softest possible feel, as well as excellent durability and the capacity to be washed.
How to use a sublimation tumbler press
After the temperature of the heat press tumbler has been brought up to the appropriate level, you will need to hold the tumbler so that the seam side of the sublimation paper is facing down, and then slip the top half of the tumbler into the mug attachment. Check that the top of the tumbler's rim is completely encased within the mug attachment. Put the lid back on the tumbler heat press, and then set the timer on the sublimation tumbler with cricut mug press for half a minute. Make sure you apply a medium amount of pressure and press at a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 80-100 seconds. If you want to print a design that goes all the way around the tumbler, you will need to rotate the tumbler and continue pressing with the sublimation tumbler with heat press for another 80-100 seconds. When done, remove immediately from the press and peel while still hot. Caution is advised because the object will be extremely hot.
