Do not be a Freud, it’s just a cartoon on a mug.

Product Description

Dye Sublimation mug

Sublimation is a very simple but highly effective process to professionally and permanently apply an image into (not onto) the surface of ceramics to create high quality products.

In other printing processes, a transfer paper, metal sheet or film is printed and applied onto a blank item. However, with dye-sublimation, the image is dyed directly into the surface of the item.

Dye-sublimation “ink” is actually fine dry granules held in a liquid carrier. The dye-sublimation inks are printed with an ink-jet printer onto a special “paper”, which holds the image in place.

The image or screen is then placed onto the blank object (the mug) that is pre-prepared with a polymer coating and heat pressed (in a machine that combines high temperature and pressure).

The dye then “sublimates” into a gas and with the help of both the heat and the pressure being applied, is embedded into the surface of the mug.

As the dyes cool they turn back into a solid and have bonded with the polymer molecules which means the image is now permanently in the surface of the product.
