What Is A Mug Press Used For?

A mug press is a heat press with a special design to make sublimation mugs. Some are also made with a mug attachment that attaches to your current heat press machine.

Traditionally to make these mugs you would need sublimation heat transfers and infusible inks.

Using the cricut mug press you can make bright, vibrant and beautiful custom designs in design space or using your favorite design software and uploading into Cricut Design Space.
