In this collection, you’ll find seven different coffee repeat themed SVG files, including:
How to Use the 7 Coffee Craft Repeat SVG Cut Files
Although you’ll find a full tutorial on how to download, upload and use the collection of 7 coffee craft repeat SVG cut files with Cricut Design Space, I wanted to provide you with some ideas on other ways to use these design files:
Although I designed these cut files so you could make custom craft themed coffee mugs, you don’t have to use them for that purpose.
If you want to make custom mugs with these coffee craft repeat SVG files with Cricut, you have two options: adhesive vinyl or infusible ink transfer sheets. Let’s take a look at why you ight want to use one or the other.
Create Custom Mugs with Adhesive Vinyl
I have created a lot of custom mugs using my Cricut Explore Air or Maker and adhesive vinyl. There have always been two issues or negatives about using adhesive vinyl:
- Adhesive vinyl will eventually peel.
- Mugs made with adhesive vinyl must be hand washed and cannot be washed in the dishwasher.

The Best Vinyl for Mugs
I’ve tried different types and brands of adhesive vinyl and I do recommend Oracle 651 Outdoor Permanent Vinyl for best results.
How to Make Your Mugs Dishwasher Safe
I’ve tried a few different techniques in an attempt to protect the vinyl design and to make the mugs dishwasher safe. By far, the best results for making ceramic mugs dishwasher safe has been by using Mod Podge Dishwasher-Safe Sealant.
Create Custom Mugs with Infusible Ink
Cricut recently came out with the Cricut Mug Press Machine. IT IS A TOTAL GAME CHANGER when it comes to creating professional quality custom mugs. (You can read more about the Mug Press in my First Look blog post.) By using infusible ink transfer sheets, pens or markers with the Mug Press machine you can easily create beautiful mugs with custom designs that are permanent, water and dishwasher-safe.
To create custom mugs with infusible ink, you will want to use special mugs called sublimation blanks. Infusible ink is a type of sublimation process. This process only works with mugs that have a special polyester coating that allows the ink to infuse into the mug. You don’t have to use Cricut brand mug blanks, but I do highly recommend them.
Supplies for Custom Mugs with Infusible Ink
You will, of course, need a cutting machine such as the Cricut Joy, Explore Air 2, Explore Air 3, Maker or Maker 3. In addition to a cutting machine, you’ll need a design (like these Coffee Craft Repeat SVG cut files) and the following:
- mug blanks
- infusible ink transfer sheets
- infusible ink pens or markers (if you are drawing your design)
- lint roller
- rubbing alcohol
- lint free cloth
- butcher paper (if using pens or markers)
- Cricut Mug Press
- heat resistant tape
You can also view all these recommended items for use with the new Mug Press in my Amazon store. I do recommend purchasing directly from Cricut, especially if you are a Cricut Access member as you can not only take advantage of their great sale prices, but use your Access member discount, too!
