RTS Sublimation Pen blanks, metal sublimation pens, sublimation pens and shrink wrap
Shiny white sublimation coating that produces vibrant colors. For use in a mug press or convection oven. Convection oven requires the use of shrink wrap to apply pressure during baking. Shrink wrap is INCLUDED with each pen purchase. It is also available separately.
***Convection Oven Directions*** PLEASE NOTE: equipment varies and so may your required settings. Please test your own equipment using these baseline recommendations.
Unscrew the black tip from the pen and remove the internal pieces. Apply sublimation transfer on the surface of the pen using heat tape. For full wrap designs, make sure you pull the transfer as tightly as possible around the pen, then tape very well along the seam. Pull the tape/transfer as tight as possible with no air pockets.
Apply shrink wrap using a heat gun to shrink it tight to the pen barrel. Add a strip of heat tape along the perforation of the shrink wrap for easier removal after baking.
Bake in a convection oven at approximately 350-375 degrees F for 5-6 minutes, turning halfway. **If your tumbler is touching a metal surface during baking, the shrink wrap will be more likely to melt!
Remove from oven and immediately remove shrink wrap and transfer. PEN WILL BE HOT!! No sealant is necessary on sublimation items.
