    Mugs - faded bottom edge.

    Hi All,

    I know this subject has been done to death, but i cant find anything recent. I am looking for suggestions/help with my mugs having a 'faded' bottom edge.

    I'm not a newbie, I have been sublimating for around 5 years now.

    I am using:
    110z mugs fom Signzworld
    Epson L382 series printer
    Inks & paper from City ink express
    ICC profile from City ink express
    Pixmax stand alone mug press (new element)

    I am aware of mugs not being straight, but haven't checked for this on this batch yet (1st job in the workshop this morning)
    I have altered settings: time, heat & pressure in the press.

    The issue is with a full wrap image, and I work to 8.5cm high, 20cm wide. Its the bottom that is the issue, faded on at least 5mil to a centimetre around the bottom.
    Where it does print well, it is nice & vibrant, & sharp edges, (top & sides)

    This is an issue that I have had come & go over the years. Is it different mug batches?

    Any suggestions please? I am looking a possible new mug supplier and would love a sample or 2 to test. I have always found Signzworld mugs ok, and a decent price. I dont mind paying a bit more to solve he issue, But punters are reluctant to pay more than £5 or£6 for a mug, so keeping my costs down is essential.

    Any suggestions gratefully taken on board,

    Thx all

    Sounding like a broken here but mdp supplies mugs are perfect.
    I really shouldn’t jinx it but I haven’t had a single faded mug yet.

    Maybe it’s to do with the pressure I use too? but I’m well happy with them.
    As for your £5-£6 for a mug I charge £8.99 eBay and £9.99 Etsy and no complaints.
    mugs literally fly out the door and if you sell cheap people will look and think “cheap crap”

    Buy a decent quality mug and raise the price a little ;)

    Wow, i never knew that you can actually earn money with mugs, i just do it as a hobby. The reason i am saying this is that i see alot of online shops that offer mugs with duraglaze for 2.99 Euro. With thos insane prices you can not earn much, at least here in germany.
