How to Make a Personalized Coffee Cup Using Cricut
So now that you have your design, how do you get it from the computer onto that hipster coffee mug? Well that is exactly what we intend to explain to you.
What you will need:
Step 1 – Log into your Cricut Design Space
Step 2 – Upload and customise your design
Step 3 – Click on the attach button – this ensures that all the letters and elements of the design are cut out together and not individually (and consequently needing to be put back together!)
Step 4 – Click to unlock the design – this means that you can customise its size
Step 5 – Use the tape measure to measure how big you would like the design to be and then enter the relevant dimensions
Step 6 – Click ‘make it’
Step 7 – Weeding – after the Cricut has made it there will be lots of negative space around it so remove any unwanted vinyl (this is called weeding)
Step 8 – Cut out a piece of the transfer tape which is large enough to cover the entire design
Step 9 – Remove the backing from the transfer tape and place it carefully onto the printed vinyl
Step 10 – Make sure the transfer tape sticks well. Start by using your fingers to remove any obvious air bubbles and then use the scraping tool to remove any additional air bubbles.
Step 11 – Slowly and carefully peel the transfer tape off the vinyl. It will now have the design on the transfer tape.
Step 12 – (Optional) Use alcohol to clean the area of the mug where the design will be placed.
Step 13 – Carefully line up the design with where you want it on the mug and place it onto the mug making sure the tape sticks well to the mug. Use your fingers to carefully smooth it out over the mug.
Step 14 – Slowly and carefully remove the transfer tape which will leave the design imprinted upon the mug. As a sidenote you can actually reuse this transfer tape for other projects.
Step 15 – Brew some delicious coffee in your new mug and enjoy!
How do you take care of a SVG coffee cup?
SVG coffee cups are unfortunately not dishwasher safe. This is because some dishwashers use very high heat to dry the dishes which basically melts the vinyl off the cups. If you have an SVG coffee cup it is best to hand wash it in warm, soapy water so it will last longer.
What is the best cutting machine?
We love the Cricut Explore Air 2. It is a compact machine with a beautiful design available in 7 different colors. The machine itself is very simple to use, has powerful cutting blades and Bluetooth capability. This is an excellent machine from a well reputed company.
What is the best vinyl to use?
If you are using your coffee cup svg to personalize your favorite mug you are going to need to use adhesive vinyl (which is basically a sticker vinyl) to apply your design to the cup. Because you are going to need to wash your cup it is best to opt for a permanent adhesive vinyl. Our favorite kind is Oracal 651, which is a glossy, permanent vinyl available in hundreds of colors.
