When we first got the StarCraft 8-in-1 Swing Away Heat Press, we knew that we needed to try out allllllll of the attachments as soon as possible. Four of the eight attachments are for mugs–two straight/regular mug press cuffs, and two tapered ones. So we busted into our stock of sublimation blanks from Johnson Plastics Plus (discount code below!) and got to know the mug press. After several test presses, we were ready to share our top tips on how to use the StarCraft Mug Press attachments to sublimate mugs and tumblers.

Check out the video below to see how we sublimated mugs with the StarCraft Mug Press!
