20 oz Pilsner SUBLIMATION Stainless Steel Blank Insulated SureGrip Tumbler with Lid

  • $10.49

Coated for sublimation, our 20 oz. Stainless Steel Polar Camel Travel Pilsner features SureGrip ridging and double-wall vacuum insulation with a clear lid. The mug has a narrower bottom to fit most standard cup holders. It is 2X heat & cold resistant compared to a normal travel mug and is BPA and lead free. (We also sell 14 oz Sublimation Stainless Steel tumblers.)

Tumblers may have the Polar Camel brand stamped on the bottom cap of the cup.  Standard lids have the Polar Camel lid shown in the listing photo. Upgraded sliding lids do not have any branding on them.

Polar Camels are made from 18/8 gauge stainless steel (18% chromium/8% nickel - also known as Type 304 Food Grade.)

Our tumblers are similar to all other sublimated products in that the transfer and tumbler surface need to make direct contact and reach about 400 degrees before sublimation will occur.

USING A MUG PRESS:

Note: Because not all mug presses are created equally the dwell time in a
press can vary. The settings below are based on a GKDK3 mug press from George
Knight.

2nd Note: Be sure that the artwork does not go beyond the size limits of the
mug press.

3rd Note: Because of the gap where the mug press closes you will not be able
to have the artwork wrap around the entire pilsner.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper
- heat tape

Mug heat press settings:
- temperature - 380 degrees F
- dwell time - 1:15 - 1:30 minutes
- pressure - light to medium

Steps:
1. cut your transfers so that the transfer is slightly larger vertically than
the pilsner.
2. Position the substrate onto the transfer.
3. Tape two ends of the transfer allowing for the gap in the mug press where
it will close.
4. Wrap a piece of scratch paper around the transfer and pilsner taping if
necessary.
5. Center the transfer and pilsner in the mug press.
6. Close the mug press using the heat press settings above.
7. Remove items from the press immediately. Use heat resistant gloves if
necessary - the items will be very hot.
8. Remove transfer and scratch paper.

Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (10-15 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots on the rim of the top or bottom of the pilsner
reduce the dwell time slightly (10-15 seconds).
- Too much pressure can cause trapped moisture in the paper to "jet" away
pulling ink with it in a spiked-peaked formation. To avoid this reduce the
pressure.
- Take care when applying pressure as too much press can cause the pilsner to
bend slightly which will prevent the lid from fitting properly.
- If the pilsner diameter is too small to make good contact in mug press use
an additional heat pad around the pilsner to fill that void and then be sure
to add extra time to the dwell time (20-30 seconds)

IN A CONVECTION OVEN (with Shrink Wrap):

Note: Because not all ovens are created equally the dwell time in an oven can
range from 4 to 5 minutes. Convection oven is recommended. Settings will vary
depending on the oven brand and model ink and paper and atmospheric
conditions.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate
- sublimation transfer
- shrink wrap
- heat gun
- heat tape
- convection oven

Oven settings:
- temperature - 380-400 degrees F
- dwell time - 4 to 5 minutes

STEPS:
1. Position transfer onto the substrate (pilsner) using heat tape to secure
the transfer to the substrate.
2. Place tumbler and transfer into shrink wrap cylinder.
4. Using the heat gun carefully direct hot air onto the shrink wrap until
tight around the tumbler and transfer.
5. Place tumbler in oven with recommended settings listed above.
6. Pull from oven and remove wrap and paper. Caution contents will be hot
use heat resistant gloves for safety.


Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots reduce the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).



IN A CONVECTION OVEN (with Silicone Wrap):

Note: Because not all ovens are created equally the dwell time in an oven can
range from 4.5 to 5.5 minutes. Convection oven is recommended. Settings will
vary depending on the oven brand and model ink and paper and atmospheric
conditions.

2nd Note: Be sure that the artwork does not go beyond the size limits of the
wrap.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper
- Silcone Wrap
- heat tape
- convection oven

Oven settings:
- temperature - 380-400 degrees F
- dwell time - 4.5 to 5.5 minutes
- pressure - light to medium

STEPS:
1. Position transfer onto the substrate (pilsner) using heat tape to secure
the transfer to the substrate.
2. Cut a piece of scratch paper to tape over your artwork transfer this
protects your wrap from ink.
3. Use the silicone wrap to secure the transfer to the tumbler start
wrapping the tumbler by stretching and rolling the silicone over top of
itself. Make sure to start wrap in a non-artwork area to prevent a line in
your artwork.
4. Put a piece of heat tape around silicone wrapped tumbler to secure wrap
(may need long pieces of tape).
5. Place tumbler in oven with recommended settings listed above.
6. Pull from oven and remove wrap and paper. Caution contents will be hot
use heat resistant gloves for safety.


Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots reduce the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
