Calling all mug lovers: From now on, our black mugs will be printed using thermo-sublimation. What does that mean for your designs? We’ll walk you through it…
Let your customers fill their kitchen cabinets with a new and improved mug! We’ve introduced thermo-sublimation as a printing technique for our black mugs. This means your designs will be more colorful and livelier.
What makes thermo-sublimation special?
There’s a white layer that’s applied in between the mug and your design. Because of this, designs are particularly vibrant, and color is even more accurate! Once it’s been printed, a design will have the same feel as the surface of the cup itself. And don’t worry the white layer won’t be seen on the final product.
How to prepare your designs for thermo-sublimation
There is one thing you should pay attention to. The line thickness of your designs should be at least 0.5 mm in order for them to be printed properly. So, if you offer very delicate designs with very fine lines – thinner than 0.5 mm – you should either adapt these designs or avoid making these designs available for the black mug.
