The mugs are similar to all other sublimated products in that the transfer and mug surface need to make direct contact and reach about 400 degrees before sublimation will occur and ceramic takes longer to heat than most products.

Personalization area: (on 1 or both sides of mug) 3 1/4"(L) x 3 1/2"(H). Personalization area: (wrapped around mug) 8"(L) x 3 1/2"(H).

USING A MUG PRESS:
Mug heat press settings:
- temperature - 400 degrees F
- dwell time - 5:00 - 6:00 minutes (see the press manufacturer for recommended
dwell time for ceramic mug)
- pressure - light to medium

Steps:
1. Cut your transfers so that the transfer is slightly larger vertically than
the mug.
2. Wrap the transfer around the mug and tape the two ends near the handle.
3. Wrap a piece of scratch paper around the transfer and mug and tape the two
ends.
4. Center the mug in the mug press.
5. Close the mug press using the mug heat press settings above.
6. Remove items from the press immediately. Use heat resistant gloves if
necessary - the items will be very hot.

Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (30-60 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots on the rim of the top or bottom of the mug reduce
the dwell time slightly (15-30 seconds).
- Too much pressure can cause trapped moisture in the paper to "jet" away
pulling ink with it in a spiked-peaked formation. To avoid this reduce the
pressure.

IN A CONVECTION OVEN (using a silicone wrap)
Oven settings:
- temperature - 380-400 degrees F
- dwell time - 12 - 14 minutes (depending on the wrap and oven type)
- mug wrap pressure - light to medium

Steps:
1. Cut your transfers so that the transfer is slightly larger vertically than
the mug.
2. Wrap the transfer around the mug and tape the two ends near the handle.
3. Wrap a piece of scratch paper around the transfer and mug and tape the two
ends.
4. Wrap the silicone wrap around the mug and push the metal prongs through the
metal loops and squeeze together with both hands until secured.
5. Using the oven settings above stand the mug up in the oven. If placing
multiple mugs leave space between each to allow for proper heat & air
circulation.
6. Remove items from the oven after the appropriate dwell time using heat
resistant gloves if necessary - the items will be very hot.

IN CONVECTION OVEN (using shrink wrap)
Oven settings:
- temperature - 380-400 degrees F
- dwell time - 11 to 13 minutes

STEPS:
1. Position transfer onto the mug using heat tape to secure the transfer to
the substrate.
2. Place mug and transfer into shrink wrap cylinder.
3. Using the heat gun carefully direct hot air onto the shrink wrap until
tight around the Polar Camel and transfer.
4. Place mug in oven with recommended settings listed above.
5. Pull from oven and remove wrap and paper. Caution contents will be hot
use heat resistant gloves for safety.
