Design, Invent, Print! Expands To A Dedicated Mainly Mugs Etsy Store ...

Following the success of our clothing ranges we decided to open an exclusive Etsy store to show off our new mug ranges.

However, as the name suggests we aim to incorporate more than just mugs, so if you can drink from and we can print on it you can expect to see it at Mainly Mugs.

Ever wondered what it takes to create the perfect custom mug for your special occasion?

Don't be mislead that a custom printed mug is a quick and easy. The following will detail the process for you (not to mention the initial creation of the design):

1: After receiving an order from you, your order details are transferred to our internal system, then a production sheet is printed and placed in a job folder.

2: Via CorelDraw x5 (fancy software) we arrange the chosen design on an art board.

3: The art board is then sent to the sublimation printing machine, a Ricoh 3110dn printer with sawgrass inks as well as texprint sublimation paper for hard coatings.

4: The designs are then cut apart and taped into place on the substrate using heat tape and/or repositional adhesive spray.

5: The mug is then wrapped in protective paper and placed into a mug press at 350 degrees for a period of 2 minutes.

6: The mug is then removed from the press and the transfer removed and inspected. The mug is then placed on a cooling station in front of a fan to speed the cooling process and to quickly stop the sublimation process.

7: Completed mugs are then packaged and paired back up with job folders in shipping boxes and shipping labels are applied.

Finally your order is shipped to you.
