No doubt, the two most common issues for beginners sublimating tumblers are ghosting at the top and bottom or not getting a good seam. It took us a while to figure out the best way to print, cut and secure a tumbler sublimation design to get good results. But, we’re happy to say that we’ve nailed down some great techniques that can help you avoid ghosting and seams in your sublimation tumblers.
We cover everything from sizing a sublimation image for a tumbler to printing it, cutting it, taping it and sublimating a tumbler in a tumbler press. Big thanks to Hiipoo for sponsoring this video and providing the materials for us to do this project! We’ve worked with them for a LONG time and absolutely love their sublimation products. Everything we used is linked below!
