Instructions for Using an Oven and SubliShrink (SF79)
400° 8 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 400°
2. Cut out template and tape it tightly to your mug
*Optional- if adding a handle design make sure that it is taped down securely.
3. Cut a slit about 2 inches from the bottom of the shrink wrap and slip the wrap over the mug with the handle out
4. Tape shrink wrap under handle to ensure that it will not separate when tightened with heat
5. Tuck excess SubliShink into the mug and evenly tighten the wrap by using the heat gun to apply hot air
6. Place in preheated oven for 8 minutes
7. Use caution to remove SubliShrink and paper from hot mug immediately
8. Dip the mug in lukewarm water to stop the sublimation process.

The lid for the travel mug may appear loose on the blank substrate. The mug shrinks slightly after sublimation for a correct fit of the lid.

Should an image span the center line crease in the mug it will create a white line through it.

Mugs should be dipped in water immediately after removal from the press. Be sure to remove the metal insert first. This procedure is necessary to prevent the image from ghosting and yielding a fuzzy imprint.
