Mugs

 

Sizing and printing a transfer on letter sized paper

1)  Design a graphic to fit in a rectangle  

-  9.375” x 3.75” (11 oz mug)

-  9.5" x 4.25" (15 ox. mug)

-  9" x 3.5" Polysub mug

2)  If you are using a mug press to heat the mug, keep the margins at least 1” from the left and right boundaries of the rectangle, and ˝” away from the top and bottom. If you are using a mug wrap, we suggest the same margins, but it is possible to create an image that is closer to the edges of the rectangle.
3)  Place the rectangle on a landscape letter sized page, justified to the top left hand corner of the page. To print a second transfer on the same page, duplicate the rectangle below the first.
4)  Print the transfers without printing the rectangles.
5)  Take the prints and cut appropriately -  9.375” x 3.75” for an 11 oz mug -  9.5" x 4.25" for a 15 ox. mug.
 

Sizing and printing a transfer on mug sized paper

1)  Create a custom page size 9" x 3.5". Remember the printing margins are 1/4 inch.

 
 

 
 

Securing the transfer on the mug

1)  Secure the transfer with heat tape by placing the tape the edge of the transfer and through the handle. The heat tape should not contact an imaged area.

2)  Secure a plain paper cover sheet over the transfer, sized the same as the transfer, with heat tape by placing the tape through the handle. The heat tape should not cover an imaged area.
