Dye Sublimation Mugs

Dye sublimation mugs are made with full colour images or graphics printed onto them. This is a great option if you want your branded mugs to be as colorful and vibrant as possible.

Marketing your business using branded mugs will require you to stand out and get your designs noticed. Due to the accuracy and quality of dye sublimation, you can definitely achieve these goals.

The dye sublimation printer will print your design onto a special kind of paper. Then this paper is applied to the body of the mug and fixed to it with tape and clamps to keep it tight.

This is then put into a kiln and the sublimation process takes place, leaving behind a striking and lasting design.


WOW Mugs

If you want your branded mugs to stand out above the rest, use our WOW mugs.

Along with the dye sublimation process, we also apply a heat sensitive coating to our WOW mugs that reveals a hidden design when exposed to heat.

Pour some boiling water into your WOW mug and the heat sensitive coating will disappear and reveal the cool and colourful design beneath it.
