What is a sublimation tumbler?
Sublimation tumblers are the tumblers decorated with different kinds of images. The images on the exterior of the tumblers are printed with a printing method called “sublimation”. For this method to work, you need to use a type of ink that can transfer from a special paper and combine with another material. From a solid state, the ink turns into gas when exposed to high heat, then finally it’s embedded into the surface of the tumbler.This printing technique is now widely used with different kinds of material and objects, such as t-shirts, door mat, ceramic mugs, mouse pads and of course, tumblers. Sublimation tumblers can last permanently, and the sublimation image is as high quality as a photograph. Now you can transform a blank tumbler into a beautiful sublimation tumbler with any kind of pictures or patterns you want. These tumblers can be used as gifts or even sold as products.However, one thing you need to keep in mind is that only tumblers coated with polyester can be printed using sublimation technique, as the sublimation ink can only be binded with a polyester surface.

Once the printed paper is securely attached to the tumbler, next you need to place a sublimation shrink wrap over the tumbler and slowly shrink the wrap with a heat gun with a low setting until the wrap fits the tumbler perfectly.Then transfer your tumbler in the oven and start heating. The heating time and temperature will vary depending on your oven wattage. If you’re using a traditional oven, the ideal setting will be 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
Step 3: Remove the sublimation paper
Once the heating process is complete, let your tumbler cool down for about 1 – 2 minutes. Then carefully remove the printed sublimation paper. Now you will see your design is perfectly printed on the surface of the tumbler, if everything is done correctly.
