Metal and acrylic snow globe tumbler for Sublimation Printing. These are sublimation ready.
The inner chamber is a stainless steel white coated insert that is made for sublimation. You will print the insert like a regular tumbler. The outer acrylic sleeve has a pre drilled hole for easy filling. Comes with a clear slider top and 2 straws, one metal and one plastic.
*** VERY IMPORTANT***
1. You will need to use regular 2 part resin, NOT UV, to attach the 2 pieces together once the design is sublimated on to the inner chamber.
2. Once you have resin in the inside rim of the metal chamber, place the acrylic sleeve into the rim. Set a heavy object ON TOP of the cup and cure for 24 hours.
3. Once the resin has cured for a full 24 hours, then you can fill the snow globe as desired.
4. Seal the cup with UV resin
- I use 8 to 10 ml for 1 cup. You do not want to overfill because it will spill out when the 2 pieces are put together.
***Please note*** The size of the finished tumbler is the same as a 20 oz skinny tumbler. The finished cup does not hold a full 20 oz of fluid.
PRESSING INSTRUCTIONS and RECOMMENDATIONS - (these are only recommendations as each press and oven are different. You will need to see what will work best for your particular press or machine)
For an air fryer:
Set your temperature to 370 for 5 minutes. (this will vary by oven so you may have to adjust accordingly). Carefully remove the item and set on a counter to cool.
For a sublimation oven (PYD Life Brand is the one I use):
Set your oven temperature to 351 top and 346 bottom for 4 minutes (this will vary by oven so you may have to adjust accordingly).
For a CONSTANT temperature mug press:
Set the temperature of the press to 350 degrees F for 80-100. These are a thin tumbler so you will need a silicon sleeve to get the element to be tight enough
For a VARIABLE temperature mug press:
set the “idle” temperature to 315 degrees, the “print” temperature to 315 degrees and the timer for 15 seconds. These are a thin tumbler so you will need a silicon sleeve to get the element to be tight enough
