Application notes: The typical imaging area for a mug is 1.25” in from the handle and .25” from the top and bottom sides of the mug.

Place heat tape on the transfer edges closest to the handle that does not have sublimation ink on it after you have aligned the image on the mug. Use heat tape to attach the transfer to the mug taking care not to cover any of the imaging area.

Use a fan to cool ceramic mugs or the A6000 Kool Plate. Do not dunk mugs in water.
