Now put a sheet of Multitrans Paper into the printer.
Open your finished PDF file in 100% black and select black/white printing (grayscale), mirror motif horizontally and paper setting “photo paper high gloss” or similar.

Printing Part 

After clicking “Print”, the finished printed Multitrans Paper comes out of the top of the printer with white print. Turn on your mug press and heat it to 140 degrees Celsius.

The next steps:


Cut out the motif roughly and stick the printed side onto the mug with some heat-resistant tape. Use an additional silicone mat for protection.


Now put the mug into the heated mug press, close it with high pressure and press for 3 minutes. Then open directly and take out the mug.

Cool down & peeling

Let the mug completely cool down and remove the multitrans slowly and evenly under cold water.
