This past week has been a low energy, low temp kind of week. We had snow, cold weather and I had aches and no energy. My daily goal was to get home so I could put my pajamas on and lounge on the couch. Keeping that in mind I have no expectations for today. I will not ask myself to try and accomplish anything. I will take each moment of the day as it comes and will do whatever feels right .
If you follow me on facebook you saw that the 22nd would have been my 15th anniversary and the 23rd would have been my brothers birthday. Both rather sad days and both left me feeling incredibly lonely. Thankfully those moments are few and far between. Just another part of life I guess.

Weeded? What does that mean? And are these like transfers...I'm a bit confused.
After you cut your design on the infusible ink you weed it which is removing the unwanted ink pieces from the design. Here is a video I did a while back showing how the weeding is done. This was with vinyl but it's the same procedure just this time it's with ink instead of vinyl.
I know what we did means but I don't see a mistake. Also I had a thought do you have to buy the exact same type of cup or can you put different size cups in there
You do need what's called a sublimation mug. It has some kind of special coating on it that will allow the ink to adhere to it. Also with this mug press you can only use straight mugs, no curved sides. The press will work on mugs up to 15 oz.
We need more details on weeded, mugs used, designs, etc. lol Your mugs look very nice and I wonder if they can be put in the dishwasher. Looks like you're having fun.
The designs are pretty much anything you want. You cut the design from a sheet of infusible ink, then wrap that around the mug and place it in the press. They are both microwave and dishwasher safe.
The designs are cut from infusible ink sheets. They come in either 4.5 x 12" sheets or 12 x12" sheets. They come in various colors and patterns. The smaller size is made specifically for mugs but the larger size sheets are the same thing. The ink is on a transfer sheet and once you cut your design and weed it, you use the backing sheet to wrap the entire design around your mug before putting it into the press.
It is possible to put photos on these mugs as well but in order to do that you need a special kind of printer that uses sublimation ink. You print your picture on sublimation paper and then like the infusible ink, wrap it around the mug before inserting into the press. I would love to be able to do that as well but the printers are pretty pricey.

Yesterday was a rough day. All day long my back, hip and shoulder hurt. Then I came home and mowed the lawn. After making myself a sandwich for dinner I was exhausted and had no energy or brain power left to do a post. Tomorrow I will be back to answer all the questions you had on yesterdays post.
