    I have a few of these presses - mine are set to 125 idle, 167 temp for 170 seconds with a light to medium pressure. I use one piece of tape that I thread through the handle, no need for any more as the blanket applies pressure, so ink doesn't migrate from top/bottom of paper.

    I don't normally print top to bottom, but the ones I have done have came out fine - without preheating the mug.

    Cheers John

    Thanks, which paper do you use? I am trying it with Ink Experts Versa (which has always been fine with my other press).

    I managed to get the bottoms working now with 140 idle, 195 temp, 175 seconds.

    After they finish I put the bottom in and close the press (so the top is out of the end) and leave it in for another 10 seconds.

    They have been coming out OK that way.

    I've been setting mine to a constant 180c and pressing for 180 - 210 seconds, similar to what I done with my Adkins mug press. For a full wrap, I'll add an extra minute.

    too tight is not good. it should be just tight enough so mug is not moving. too tight can give blurred effect on your artwork.
    add 30 seconds and see what is going to happen.

    I'm using a Ricoh printer with Sublijet-R inks (sawgrass) - I'm printing onto Xpres XP4072A papers and only use Xpres XP5013 mugs which IMO, cannot be beat on quality.
    Great that you're getting a decent image now - sublimation is rarely straight forward and temp/times that work for some, don't for others. lol
    Cheers John
