Neil Enterprises Inc., Vernon Hills, Ill., has added two mugs of unbreakable polymers to its offering: a 15-ounce Travel Mug (#550) and an 11-ounce Coffee Mug (#501). Neil claims these mugs are the only FDA approved sublimation mugs with an imprint.
These photo mugs can be printed on directly with sublimation inks but do not have the extra sublimation coating. This results in the image lasting much longer compared to ordinary sublimated blanks, the company says. The bright white color allows for a vibrant photo transfer and these sublimation mugs have a 90-second pressing time. An aluminum insert tool that keeps the mug rigid during the imprinting process is also available.
The Coffee Mug is $1.75 each and sold in a case of 48 and the Travel Mug is $3.75 each sold in case of 48.
