How to use sublimation sticker vinyl to DIY glass Jar/Cups
Prepare the design: Using graphic design software, create or import the desired image or design. Make sure to flip the image horizontally (mirror mode) as sublimation printing requires that the image is reversed for the final result.
Print the design: Load sublimation paper into your printer and print the design using sublimation ink. Ensure that you are using the correct settings for your printer and sublimation paper. Allow the print to fully dry to prevent smudging.
Set up the flat press: Set the flat press to a temperature of 190 degrees Celsius (374 degrees Fahrenheit) and a time of 40 seconds. Adjust the pressure to low or follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for your specific flat press.
Position the sublimation paper and sticker vinyl: Place the sublimation paper with the image facing down onto the sticker vinyl. Align the design properly, ensuring it fits within the vinyl’s dimensions.
Press the design onto the vinyl: Carefully place the paper with the image and the sublimation sticker vinyl onto the flat press. The printed side of the paper should be facing the adhesive side of the vinyl. Close the press and apply even pressure.
Heat transfer process: Allow the flat press to apply heat and pressure for the set time of 40 seconds. This will cause the sublimation ink on the paper to transfer onto the vinyl, resulting in a vibrant and permanent design.
Remove the paper and let it cool: Once the time is up, open the flat press and remove the paper. Be cautious as both the paper and vinyl may be hot. Set aside the vinyl sticker and let it cool completely before handling.
Cut the sublimation sticker vinyl: Use a cutting plotter or scissors to cut the cooled sublimation sticker vinyl into the desired shape. Trim around the design, removing any excess vinyl to achieve the desired sticker shape.
Apply the sticker: Peel off the backing of the sublimation sticker vinyl to reveal the adhesive side. Carefully place the sticker onto the glass Jar or Cups, ensuring it is aligned correctly. Press it firmly to ensure good adhesion.
