Instructions

METHOD 1 - USING A MUG PRESS:
Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate (mug)
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper
- heat tape

Mug heat press settings:
- temperature - 380 degrees F
- dwell time - 1:00 to 1:15 minutes
- pressure - light to medium

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

Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (10-15 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 (10-15 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.

METHOD 2 - IN A CONVECTION OVEN (using Silicone Wrap):
Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate (mug)
- wrap - MGWRP1
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper
- heat tape

Mug heat press settings:
- temperature - 380 - 400 degrees F
- dwell time - 5:30 - 6:30 minutes

Steps:
1. cut your transfers so that the transfer is slightly larger vertically than
the mug.
2. Position the substrate onto the transfer.
3. Tape two ends of the transfer near the handle of the mug using the heat
tape.
4. Wrap a piece of scratch paper around the transfer and mug taping if
necessary.
5. Place the wrap onto the mug and snap closed.
6. Place in oven and use the settings above.
7. Remove items from the oven and remove wrap transfer and scratch paper. 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 (10-15 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 (10-15 seconds).

METHOD 3 - CONVECTION OVEN (using shrink wrap)
Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate (tumbler)
- sublimation transfer
- shrink wrap
- heat gun
- heat tape
- convection oven

Oven settings:
- temperature - 375-380 degrees F
- dwell time - 5:00 - 6:00 minutes

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

Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots reduce the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
