Vinyl newbie question

This may have an obvious answer but I have a question. I really want to get started with Vinyl but only have Oracle 631 right now, am I able to use this on a glass coffee mug? If so, do I need to seal it with something so it does not come off with washing?

I don’t use Oracal that often, but you can put any type of permanent or removable vinyl on glass as long as you hand wash. However, permanent will stick better over time. No need to seal - especially if it’s clear glass as it would show. An alternate idea is to use vinyl (like cheap, clear shelf liner) for stencils and use etching cream to etch in the design. It’s pretty easy - just search for DIY videos about it online.

Thank you for your response Pam :smiley:

Hey Amy!
If you are wanting to put vinyl on a mug you will want to go with Oracle 651 - this is permanent “outdoor” vinyl. With this you won’t need to seal the mug with anything and is top rack dishwasher safe! :smiley: I have made many mugs with oracle 651 and they have upheld pretty well.

Oracle 631 is not a permanent vinyl so it likely won’t stay well on a mug. If you want to ensure it sticks longer you could try coating it in dishwasher safe Mod Podge, that may help! :slight_smile:

Hey Brittany!
Thanks for that idea, I will try the Mod Podge until I can get some Oracle 651

Not a problem Amy! :smiley:

Something to be aware of, is the dishwasher safe modge posge takes 28 days to cure. It’s worked great for me, but those 28 days can feel so very long.

Modge Podge is food safe?

While it is waterbase and non-toxic (so it won’t hurt you), it’s not FDA approved food-safe. So no unfortunately its not.

No worries, I don’t use it due to how long it takes to cure. I very much double any customer would wait 30 days to get their order. x
