If you are looking to learn how to use Cricut Design Space To Make Mug Designs, you’ve come to the right place. So, in this video tutorial I am going to show you how to design your own Cricut Mug Designs using Cricut design Space.
The new Cricut Mug Press makes it really easy to create custom coffee mug designs. And I am going to show you how easy it is to make your own mug wrap designs with just a few steps and supplies! Lets cover a few things first.
Can I Use Any Mug With The Cricut Mug Press?
Although these are microwave safe ceramic mugs, please note that to personalize these coffee cups with Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets you will need a special mug. The Cricut Brand Blank mugs or sublimation mugs.
Both of these mug types feature a special coating that allow the infusible ink to “infuse into the mug”. You will also need a cutting machine.
I like to use my Cricut Joy when designing mugs. Because, the transfer sheets for the joy are perfectly sized for personalized coffee mugs.
There are tons of pre-made designs in Cricut design space. And even more images if you have Cricut access.
How Do I Make Photo Mugs With The Cricut Mug Press?
For photo mugs, to clarify, you will need a special printer with special ink to print the image to make it stay. In short, for sublimation, I recommend the EcoTank printer and Cosmos Sublimation ink. However, custom designed mugs with photos make amazing gifts!
What Do I Need To Design A Mug With The Cricut Mug Press?
- Cricut Mug Press
- Cutting Machine, but, I like the Cricut Joy
