40oz handled tumbler for sublimation. Shimmer sublimation coating that produces vibrant colors. For use in a mug press or convection oven. **REMOVE HANDLE BEFORE SUBLIMATING!**
Available with options for shimmer color.
Instructions for sublimating:
***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.
*Tumbler Press* (Equipment settings and functions may vary. These settings are on our Elite Pro Max tumbler press offered in the shop) Larger 32oz+ attachment is required for the press.
Press at 360°F for 120 seconds. DO NOT TURN. (brackets for handle do not allow tumbler to be turned in the press.) If the design is darker, an additional few seconds may be required. Remove transfer and let cool.
*Convection Oven* (Equipment settings will vary!)
Apply shrink wrap using a heat gun to shrink it tight to the tumbler.
Bake in a convection oven at approximately 385-400 degrees F for 5-6 minutes, turning halfway. **If your tumbler is touching a metal surface during baking, the shrink wrap will be more likely to melt!
Remove from oven and remove shrink wrap and transfer. TUMBLER WILL BE HOT!!
No sealant is necessary on sublimation tumblers. *Hand washing is recommended as the high heat in many dishwashers may reactivate the heat and cause it to bleed.
