I have shared these files in various forums over the years but never got around to putting them on my blog. If you are cutting vinyl for a standard 16 oz double wall tumbler then this template will let you curve the text so that it will be in a straight line when applied to the tumbler.
Open the shared Cricut Design Space 16 oz. template here (letters have to be ungrouped and positioned/rotated individually)
You can see from the Silhouette Studio screen shot above that the instructions are on the mat, but basically you just double click and backspace over the sample text, type in your own, change the font and size, then recenter. Ungroup and regroup your text to move it from the curve or leave it on the curve to keep it editable. Delete what you don’t need and cut.
I tried to make this template a no-brainer, but a basic knowledge of text on path is helpful for using it to the fullest. Here’s my video on the text to path if you need a refresher.
I have also included a print and cut file for a paper guide that you can place inside the clear tumbler to help you get the vinyl on straight.
Download the .studio print and cut tumbler helper here. As shown below, this goes inside the cup to help you position the design when its time to apply it. By request, here is a PDF that Cricut users can print and hand cut (Cricut can not print then cut large enough).
And if you want to make your own templates for other size items, instructions for using an online generator are here.
