Brand Logo Mug:

  1. Go to the "Blank Products" tab in CreativeStudio and click on the “Drinkware” Icon then go to page 5. Scroll down to the “15oz Ceramic Mug” 
  2. Go to the "Designs" tab and click on the “Logo Maker” Premium folder.  Scroll to the “Seal” design and click on it. 
  3. Click on each text portion and change it.  If you need to resize after changing the name, there is a slider right beneath the text box or you can use the anchors on the text box in the design. If your company name won’t fit in the two boxes, you could put “EST.” in the left box and the year your company was founded in the right. 
  4. We changed the color of the design by choosing “fill color” on the right panel.  Use the hex code for your brand color.  If you don’t have a color, you can play with the sliders to find a color or do a google search.  We used hex code #801423, which is in the burgundy family. 
  5. Choose “select all” from the top menu. 
  6. Resize the design and move it to the left side of the print area. 
  7. With select all still in place, hit duplicate on the right side. 
  8. Move the copy to the right side of the mug. You’ll have to move the pieces separately.
  9. Now we are ready to print, click on the "print" Icon at the top right the printer should be set on your printer, choose the paper size you will be using, set the product to “ceramic mug,” and change color mode to “Photographic.”  This will give you a color that is the most accurate to the code you put in.  Then, you will click on print. Sawgrass Print Manager should pop up and click on print.
  10. Turn on and set your tumbler/mug heat press to 375F and your time to 4.5 minutes.
  11. Rubbing Alcohol and a lint free cloth can be used to remove fingerprints from ceramics.
  12. Place your design face down and center on the sign, tape down the printed design with heat tape on all edges
  13. Place the mug in the press and close. 
  14. After timer goes off, slowly open the press and remove the transfer paper.    😊 Enjoy!
