Mugs for sublimation are very popular nowadays due to the fact that they may be customized and adapted for every individual’s taste. Whether you're a professional sublimation printer or you're thinking of creating your own designs at home, you'll find what you're looking for at Webcartridge.
In addition, demand for sublimation printing in general, which has already seen considerable growth in recent times, is expected to skyrocket and increase at an annual growth rate of 16.8% until 2024.
Sublimation is a printing technique that allows you to personalise different products by printing a photographic image or text on them.. And the mug is the personalisable product par excellence! To print onto a mug, you need a dye sublimation printer (these are always inkjet printers), dye sublimation ink (only use the dye sublimation printer with dye sublimation ink, if used with normal ink it won't work!), dye sublimation paper, thermal adhesive tape and a heat press for mugs.
Now for the most important bit: the design and the mug. And here, we have some great news: there are no limits when it comes to the design. Choose your favourite comic book character, an inspirational phrase, a golden grouse, Boris Johnson or your partner's smiling face — whatever you like! However, not just any mug will do. It must be sublimation-ready, and have a high-quality, uniform finish for optimal and long-lasting results. It should also be preferably white. This ensures that the colour of the design doesn't blend in with the colour of the mug.
Personalised mugs using sublimation printing make original, fun and unique gifts. Photos, phrases, movie posters... this technique guarantees a long-lasting result that won't be erased by washing or microwaving the mug. Choose your favourite mug at Webcartridge, customise it and make it really special!
