Coral 2 Mug Press Instructions

Coral 2 Mug Press


Our Coral 2 Mug Press gives you the capability of transferring photos and words onto mugs, which can than be used for promotional products, convention giveaways, gifts, decorations and more.


The Coral 2 Mug Press features a digital controller that provides you a more accurate setting, as well as easy control over the amount of pressure being used.




  1. Before you begin heating, adjust the pressure of the machine, based on the diameter of the mug, by using the pressure adjust nut. Avoid pressing too tightly against the mug.
  2. Print your image with a sublimation printer and paper (the maximum image size is 200x90). Cut the paper and attach it to the mug with heat tape. Leave about a 2 cm. gap on each side of the handle.
  3. Place the mug onto the heating mat.
  4. Turn the power on.
  5. Set the time and temperature (recommended heating time is 180 seconds; recommended temperature is 180° Celsius.  
  6. An alarm will sound when the 180 seconds have expired. Turn off the temperature and time switch and wait 10 seconds before lifting the handle. Take out the mug and peel off the paper. If you find it difficult to remove the paper, place the mug into lukewarm water for 30 seconds.
  7. Always switch off the unit after pressing and never heat the blanket without a mug. We suggest using a spare mug to preheat the blanket, or to use between pressing, in order to avoid causing the blanket to burn out.



Potential problems with the press machine, and their solutions


  1. The power light remains off even when you turn the device on.

The likely issue is that the power connection is loose, or the fuse is burned out.

  1. You find it difficult to adjust the pressure of the press.

Add lube oil to the pressure adjust nut.

  1. The mug mat is no heating up. Check the fuses first there is one 13 amp fuse in the main connector and one 5amp fuse on the back of the unit above the kettle cord connection

You may have an issue with the temperature controller, an internal electronic issue, or the mug mat needs repair.


Potential problems with your transfer results, and their solutions


  1. Your transfer is too light.

The timer was likely set too short. Add more time to the transfer process.

  1. The image is faint.

This is typically the result of the time being set too short or the pressure are not even

  1. Only some parts of the image are light.

Either there wasn’t enough pressure on the mug, or the coating of the mug is uneven. You have two options here. You can add more pressure, or, if that does not solve the issue, you should change mugs.

  1. Only parts of the image are faint.

Check the heating mat and see if there is any tear or wear on the mat

  1. The paper is stuck on the mug.

This is normally a result of too much heating time, or a result of coating that isn’t dry. Reduce the time and/or temperature of the machine and change mugs.
