Putting a Vinyl Decal on a Starbucks Cold Cup

I am showing you how to size and put a vinyl decal on a Starbucks cold cup logo. The tutorial uses a 24oz Starbucks cold cup, but you can modify for different cup sizes by measuring the logo. For the cold cups I use permanent vinyl but always suggest hand washing.

The cold cup I am using has been coated in glitter and epoxy and is smooth and ready for vinyl. Watch my YouTube video to learn how to make a glitter tumbler.

Measuring the Logo

Measure your cold cup logo with a soft measuring tape. You can find these in the sewing section at most stores and craft stores. For this venti cold cup the logo measures 2 inches x 2 1/8 inches.

Sizing the Design in Silhouette Studio

To get the design to the correct size I start by making an oval in Silhouette Studio that measures 2×2.125 inches. Then I take the design that will go around the logo and size it to that oval.

The sun design was purchased from ETSY
