American Football Mug


Today I decorated a mug with vinyl using a recent SVG release from Sanqunetti Design. This is one of a set of female oriented american football images available as a set of cutting files in SVG format (to use with the Designer Edition of the Silhouette Studio software), a DXF (which can be used with the basic version) and a JPG (for printing).

I used 4 colours of regular vinyl and layered them all onto a single piece of transfer tape, applying them to the mug in a single operation. I included a small triangle on each layer to use to align the pieces, first picking up the white, then dark pink, brown and lastly the light pink.

A thorough burnishing at each stage (rubbing with a plastic straight edge to remove air) ensured that there are no air bubbles to be seen.

The set is available from the Sanqunetti Design store.

Have you tried using vinyl with your cutting machine yet. If not, do try. It's easier than you'd think!
