Instructions

STEP 1: MEASURE YOUR CUP

Use a soft measuring tape to see how wide and tall you want your design to be.  For the cup I used, 3" wide was perfect.

STEP 3: CUT YOUR VINYL

Place the vinyl on a standard grip mat with the colored side facing up and optionally use a brayer tool to make sure the vinyl is adhered well.

Step 5: REMOVE EXCESS VINYL AND WEED THE DESIGN

Use your weeding tool to remove all of the excess vinyl. Then weed the design to remove any vinyl that we don't want to show up on the banner.

Step 6: APPLY TRANSFER TAPE

Apply the transfer tape to the design and use the scraper tool to make sure the design sticks to the transfer tape.

STEP 7: CUT SLITS IN TRANSFER TAPE

Cut slits in the transfer tape all around the design.  This will allow the design to easily apply to the rounded surface without wrinkling.

STEP 8: CLEAN SURFACE OF MUG

Before applying the transfer tape, use a lint free cloth and alcohol to clean off the mug. You don't want any dust or dirt to get under the vinyl when you apply it.

STEP 9: PLACE DESIGN ON MUG

Line up the design on the mug and gently press down the design starting in the center of the design and working outward.
