Tips for Great Results with Your Cricut Coffee Press
Do I have to place designs only in certain areas when using the Mug Press?
For best results, don’t put designs on the inside, bottom, or handle of your mugs. Always make sure your design doesn’t extend past the smooth, pressing area of the mug press. If this happens, the design won’t be pressed on the mug properly and the mugs won’t be dishwasher safe.
Can you use the Cricut mug press on other cups?
Yes, you can. You’re not limited to only using Cricut blanks but Cricut does recommend that you look for products that are poly-coated and have a smooth, straight pressing area for your design.
The Cricut Coffee Mug Press has straight sides. If you choose a mug or tumbler that isn’t straight, the design won’t be pressed on properly. Don’t place designs on blanks with bevels, curves, or textures, and be sure the blank can be completely inserted into the press. The bottom of the mug or tumbler must touch the bottom of the base heater.
Of course, Cricut Mugs , are perfect to use in the Cricut mug press, but if you want to choose another mug make sure they meet Cricut standards. Infusible Ink and the Cricut Mug Press should work with generic mugs that indicate “sublimation compatible,” however Cricut does not guarantee results with blank mugs from non-Cricut brands.
Can you use the Cricut mug press on tumblers?
It is possible to create designs for tumblers and many crafters make customized tumblers with monograms and designs. To do this, tumblers must have straight sides where you want the design and only put the design where it touches the mug press.
Some crafters get creative by inserting the tumbler upside down in the press. Their design is close to the top of the tumbler and the bottom of the tumbler, where there isn’t any design is sticking out of the top of the mug press. If you try this technique, be sure and remove the lid before you start pressing.
