The JPSS and regular inkjet ink are not appropriate to make mugs. You need dye sublimation ink, dye sublimation paper and special sublimation coated mugs. It sounds like you are missing all three! :eek:

For info I would have a look at the Sublimation section of this forum Dye Sublimation - T-Shirt Forums another great website is
http://www.dyesub.org where they have articles and reviews on different products and a article on getting started in Sublimation , there is a lot of information for you there it`s a great forum and a lot of the problems with this type of printing have already been posted , yes the inks are expensive . What I would do is click on the link for PrintForProfit and have a look at the articles there also . There are also the suppliers under the Preferred Vendors header on this page . That is probably all the help I can offer you as I am not a Local . When I first looked into sublimation I spent 4 Days reading all the info on the net about it , there is so much out there , you will even find videos on Youtube that also explains the process . Good luck with it :)
