    A question....when you say "wrap text," can the text be an image?

    sorry - haven't tried to play around with this yet

    Jeanette, this is very nice of you, thanks! I haven't done this, though, and I'm a bit clueless as to where to start. Could anyone offer a Tumbler Template for Dummies pointer or two?? Does this come in as a background image onto which you place individual letters or images?

    Dukefan, you can wrap anything, but the thing to keep in mind is that it has to be a series of pieces. This is why Bryan always breaks the words, so that each letter can be tilted on it's own. If I'm putting a single image on a tumbler, like a Snoopy, I just cut it flat and position it where I want it. If you want a design of something, you can wrap it to ensure spacing and so that it can be placed as one 'piece'. The main reason to do the templates is to ensure horizontal alignment of the pieces. image

    Lynne, this is basically your designing area that corresponds to the entire surface of the tumbler. I don't typically cut the entire shape, but rather use it to design my spacing and the curvature for anything I want to be horizontal on my glass.
    In doing the above sample, I discovered that doing the wrap to the line works a lot better when I shut the eye on the entire shape. While it was open, the wrap wanted to grab the larger shape. The placement on the tumblers doesn't have to be perfect. I wrap/warp the text knowing it's either for the middle or up a little higher, then I place the name on the glass, adhering the center first and pressing outwards. I don't worry about finding the exact height that it needs to be at, but as long as it's fairly close, it is fine.
    The nice thing with doing the tumblers is that they take very little vinyl and you can remove it if you don't like it, so play and you will discover it's not hard to do.
    Also, not everything needs to be wrapped/warped! You can easily cut a name as is, and adher it vertical or on an angle. It's only when you are trying to achieve horizontal that you need to worry about curvature.

    Got it. Thanks!

    This makes much more sense now.

    I've been doing water bottles with a shape and name and have wondered why everyone kept talking about needing a tumbler wrap template. I've just been cutting them like normal.

    Karen, I don't have one to measure, but if you want to provide the measurements, I can make one for you.
    I need:
    - the diameter across the top
    - the diameter across the bottom
    - the distance between the top and bottom (measured against the side of the tumbler)

    Thanks Judy! I've updated the original file so that one page is the 16 ounce tumbler and the other page is the 20 ounce tumbler.

    Thanks so much Jeannette but I guess I'm an idiot because I'm still having issues even with this great template. Are we supposed to be able to wrap the text to any of the 3 lines? I have closed the eye on the green wrap layer. When I move my text to the middle line it wraps upside down and all the way to the right. I have auto-split checked on my text and and I'm holding the ctrl key when I move the text. What am I doing wrong??? Thanks so much for any help with this.

    Can you provide a file? Maybe we could play with it.

    There's setting for offset, vertical alignment and space.
    Offset - you will need to set it to around 50% to get it to go right side up. Where it starts is Andy's logic, so I just adjust to where I want it.
    Vertical alignment - you can adjust this so it's right over the line.
    Spacing - Spreads your text out further.

  • YorkieMomYorkieMom Posts: 589Member
    Good grief!! I had completely forgotten the offset would bring it back around. Got it perfect now! Thanks so much Jeannette! I was doing ok with your other formula but this is so much easier....now that you straightened me out! #-O

    Nelda...thanks for your offer to work on it :)

  • mortmomof2mortmomof2 Posts: 261Member
    Is there any way this can be made into a file that we print and cut to insert on the inside of the tumbler to help with alignment when placing items? I can get the designs made, but putting them on 'straight' is another whole thing!

    Thanks!!

    The MTC file at the top should work for print and cut. You might have to adjust slightly since you are placing it on the inside of the tumbler.

    Thank you! My friend told me how to add the driver on my parallels side for the cameo without having to go on the internet. So, I was going to play tomorrow and see if it worked. :) But now, I have the svg, so- if it didn't work- I could use my sCAL. Thank you!!

    Also, here's a link to an alignment grid so the text goes onto the tumbler straight.
