I would suggest picking up a C88+, an ArTainium inkset and ICC profile, and a simple mug wrap to start with. Unless you are planning on making large numbers of mugs, it's really hard to justify the cost of the mug press when a rubber mug wrap and a toaster oven will produce the same results for the occasional short run order.Hi,
I going to start printing my owns mugs in the near future. From what I can gather, dye sub is the best method.
When looking to buy a printer, mugs, mug press etc, what should I be looking for?
Mug presses confuse me the most as there seems to be many different makes/model varying massively in price.
I am looking to start with around £200. Is there anything I should know?
Thanks in advance,
I like Cactus mugs. They have a traditional coffee mug size and shape and the coating is very high quality.
*EDIT* Oh, and you will need a decent carrier paper to print onto. Personally I use Truepix Classic, but I don't believe the brand of paper makes a whole lot of difference when sublimating (it's only responsibility is to carry the ink from the printer to the substrate).
