How to Sublimate Tumblers with the Cricut Mug Press
It’s September, and officially Pumpkin Spice Season so why not kick it off with a Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice design for your tumbler? I love this design the pastels really look nice against the white tumbler.

- Sublimation print (sign up for my newsletter below for my Pumpkin Spice design)

Shop the items in my Amazon Storefront.
I created a quick video to show you the steps below…

Now, let’s walk through the steps…
Step 1: Print the design on your sublimation printer, and trim it with scissors to fit.
Step 2: Grab your skinny tumbler and remove dust and debris with the lint roller.
Step 3: Wrap the design with the print side around the tumbler and secure it with heat-resistant tape.
Step 4: Wrap butcher paper around the tumbler and secure it with tape.
Step 5. Wrap a silicon wrap around the tumbler (I used the middle-thickness one) and place it in the Cricut Mug Press. Time it for about 4 minutes, then with heat-resistant gloves, spin the tumbler 180 degrees. And press for an additional 4 minutes.
Step 6: With heat-resistant gloves, flip over the tumbler and repeat step 5.
Step 7: Remove the tumbler from the press and place it on a heat mat. Once cooled, remove the paper to reveal the design!
What do you think? Wasn’t that easy? And I didn’t have to purchase a separate tumbler press to make it!
I hope you give this technique a try and please don’t forget to tag me on social media @michellespartyplanit. I love to see your creations!
