I’ve never been a coffee drinker, but I’ve always loved mugs. When D came into my life, all the mugs I’ve collected finally got some use, as he was an avid coffee connoisseur. That is until recently, when he gave it up. That happened around the same time as when Cricut came out with its new Cricut Mug Press (affiliate link).

With that bad timing (lol!) we almost didn’t buy the Cricut Mug Press, as it is only designed to press mugs. However, when I saw another maker, Sheesh So Crafty, push the bounds of the Cricut Mug Press and sublimate a tumbler in it, I immediately ran out and bout one. 

We quickly learned that there are quite a few mistakes you can make when trying to sublimate a tumbler in the Cricut Mug Press. We documented it all and show you the five mistakes we made, so hopefully you don’t have to. We also got a full, clean press in, proving that you really can sublimate a tumbler in the Cricut Mug Press!
