What is a tumbler press?

A traditional heat press, like the HTVRONT auto heat press, is an easy to use machine that allows you to set a specific time and temperature for pressing designs onto blanks.

You would use a heat press to add HTV to a shirt, or sublimate a coaster. Check out my full review of the auto heat press and learn more about this type of machine.

A hat heat press is a curved heat press and a solid base to help add HTV or sublimation ink to any type of hat.

The tumbler press is a clever type of machine with a very specific use. This type of heat press applies even heat to a circular object in order to sublimate designs onto blanks.

These work with mugs, tumblers, glasses and any other drink wear that is safe for heat and sublimation.

There are a lot of options out there when it comes to both heat presses and tumblers presses. When looking for the right one for your projects consider the diameter you’ll need, as well as the maximum temperature and time.

I prefer an auto press that opens and closes with the touch of a button, I also like a machine that is easy to use and doesn’t take up much space. HTVRONT fits my needs very well.

What is sublimation?

A tumbler heat press is used in the process of sublimation. Learn all about sublimation and make your first project with me.

Sublimation allows you to infuse a printed design into a compatible blank that is permanent and won’t peel, flake or fade. The design is smooth, you cannot feel any ridges like you can when applying HTV or adhesive vinyl to a blank.

You will need sublimation ready tumblers, mugs and drinkware along with special printed designs and of course a tumbler press to get started.

My favorite place to find sublimation designs ready to print is Creative Fabrica. I pay a small monthly subscription for unlimited access to designs, fonts and even classes. I can download and print what I need anytime I want.
