Hi Robert,
I can't offer much advice on mug printing, but there are plenty other who can on this forum. So for my part all I can say is welcome aboard and hope you find what you're looking for. btw, before asking a question - you should do a search of the forum first - there's a good chance someone has already asked that question and just as good a chance that some others have answered it.
Have fun!

I will give you a quick rundown on printing mugs. You need:
software to design the prints - I use Photoshop but you can use a number of different ones. I have even seen it done with Powerpoint. Your images need to be at 300pixels per inch. You also need a printer set up with sublimation inks ( I use an Epson C110 with CISS). You also need sublimation transfer paper. After printing (mirror image) on to the paper you need to tape the cut paper to the mug using heatproof tape then heat wrapped mug in a mug heat press. If you need any more information just pm me and I will tell all I know.

Hi Robert
I don't know for sure whether the C110 is still available but the T110 is around now and a CISS (continuous ink supply system) is available as well to fill with sublimation ink. I actually bought a package from Picture Perfect Products (in Australia) that included a 5 in 1 heat press, printer with CISS, software including ICC settings and a range of blanks including mugs, tee shirts, mouse pads etc. Have a look around on the web where you are, there may be packages offered to suit you.
