Topic: Sublimation printed mugs - Dishwasher Proof?

Replies: 5

Views: 2137

Hi The dishwasher resistance of sublimation mugs is a function of the durability of the coating used by the mug producer. If the coating is not particularly durable, you will find that after a number of washes the mug fades, in some cases, very nearly back to white as you have already experienced. T...

Sublimation transfer

Hi Depends really on the material you are trying to apply the image onto. For example, T-shirts would typically take 30 to 45 seconds at 200 degrees C. Ceramic tiles on the other hand tend to take longer - 4 to 5 minutes, again at 200 degrees C. If you would like to call our technical support team f...

Mug presses

Hi We've tried to get this kind of press to work for customers in the past, but so far with very little success. Typically the coating on the mugs will start to show signs of burn, even though the image has not been fully transferred in other areas. If sublimation is the way you want to go, I think ...

Sticking papers

Hi Moss I agree with Sharon - generally when you get a roughness on the mug after it is decorated, this is because the coating has not been fully cured when it was initially applied, and the paper is sticking to the coating as a result. If you want to work you way through your stock, there are a cou...

Fabric mats

Hi Iosif It varies slightly from press to press, but generally with textile topped mats you should print them for 20 to 30 seconds at 200 to 210 degrees C. In most cases 30 seconds at 200 degrees C does the trick. Unlike the ceramic tiles, you have to decorate these face up, with the paper placed pr...

Tile printing

Hi Iosif You need to pull back on the pressure a little. The platen needs to make contact with the tile, but not that much. Just needs to be enough for the tile to press into the silicon very slightly. Also, you only need to use one piece of silicon rather than two. If printing the tile face up, pla...

Hi Linda 18 mousemats to a set of cartridges seems unusually low to me. Would expect much more than this, especially from a full set of cartridges. Sometimes if your design is very heavilly saturated with one of the CMYK colours, for example yellow, this can run out much faster than the other colour...
