FAQ - Tumbler Wraps

 

Our tumbler wraps are currently sized to fit 20oz skinny straight and 30oz skinny straight tumblers currently. Should you require a different size, you may order it when placing the order and choosing the custom size in the drop down menu. Please inform us in inches, measured flat, the size of what the sheet should be. Example: 9.3 wide x 8.2" tall.

Our 20oz skinny straight wraps are sized to 9.3 x 8.2 inches.

Our 30oz skinny straight wraps are sized to fit 10.5 x 9.55 inches.

We print on a variety of vinyl options using eco-solvent inks on a commercial Roland printer.

We leave the edges on the vinyl or sublimation transfer for you to trim down. 

Vinyl wraps are intended to be used on tumblers that will be coated in epoxy or an epoxy alternative product like Hyperion. The sublimation wraps can be used without epoxy but require a heat press or convection oven to adhere the sublimation dye to the tumbler.

Please see below breakdown of vinyl options currently available for our print products. 

 

Sublimation notes:

Sublimation transfers require a HEAT PRESS OR CONVECTION OVEN  to be applied. They can not be applied with an iron.

  • Transfers must be used on a substrate coated for sublimation (tumblers, etc.) While you can technically sublimate dark colours, this is not recommended as the sublimation dye will not show. The substrate should be white or a light colour for maximum visibility. Any other colors other than white may alter the colours of the transfer when pressed. Please ensure you are using tumblers designs for sublimation. 

  • Our sublimation set up does not use white ink therefore if there is white in the design it will become the color of the substrate you apply it to (example: if there is white in the design and you press it to a a white tumbler, that part would be white...But if there is white in the design and you press on a coloured tumbler, the colour of the tumbler will show through on the "white" areas of the design.)

  • The colors on the listing may differ from the colors on transfer. The true colors will show once pressed to the substrate.

  • Transfers will have the image reversed, this is because you will be pressing the image face down on your substrate, which will press the image the correct way (right to left)

There are no returns or refunds on any transfers. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK SIZING as every manufacturer is different! 

While every attempt to ensure colours stay exact on the prints in comparison to the listing, colours do vary from screen to screen.

 

Vinyl Print Options

We offer a variety of vinyl options for our prints (tumbler wraps, patterned vinyls and decals). This can be a little bit confusing coming to purchase from us the first time. Therefore, we are breaking it down here right now, and please also see the photos below.

We offer:

  • White Permanent Vinyl
  • White Removable Vinyl
  • Clear Permanent Vinyl
  • Clear Removable Vinyl
  • Holographic Silver/Rainbow
  • Holographic Glitter Confetti
  • Holographic Glitter Flake
  • Holographic Kaleidoscope
  • HTV 

So... Which do you choose? This is a question with no full "right" answer, but more what works best for you and your craft. Lets break down some of the the differences. 

Permanent vinyl - this is equivalent to Oracal 651. It's a standard vinyl with a good adhesive. This is used a lot in the crafting world; example, you just get a Cricut and you want to make decals to go on your sugar and flower cannisters, you use this particular vinyl. 

Removable vinyl - this is equivalent to Oracal 631. This has commonly been used for wall decals due to the ability to remove it without causing significant harm to the paint on the wall, even years down the road. Sometimes heat is still necessary, but you are likely to have better results with removable versus permanent. 

WHY would I use removable on a tumbler? 

Well, because sometimes placing a wrap, decal, pattern or piece of a pattern on a tumbler can be difficult, and sometimes it needs to be pulled up and repositioned. If you've ever had to pull up a chunk of vinyl, you know that it can be a real pain in the behind sometimes. It can stretch the vinyl, it can pull up your base (which can be extra frustrating when it pulls up a glittered or painted base) and so on. Removable is a game changer. 

White versus clear vinyl - sometimes we want our base to show through - this can be helpful if we have a glow tumbler and are using a wrap or pattern with a lot of white in the design (as white is not printed - so this part appears see-through). This can give really cool effects with alcohol ink and/or glitter bases with some fun designed patterns and wraps installed on top. 

Holographic - a game changer for tumblers. In addition to the standard white and clear vinyls, we started offering holographic vinyl in late 2022 for decals only, and expanded this to wraps and tumblers shortly thereafter. Holographic is a shiny, iridescent way to make your vinyl POP and get the attention of your customers. We offer four different holographics as of April 2023, so please take a look at the below photos and descriptions to decide what works best for your application.
