Decal Size Guide for Starbucks Cold and Hot Cups

Hey, crafty gals! I’ve been getting a whole bunch of messages about decal sizes for the popular Starbucks tumblers. A lot of people attempt to cut and apply a perfect circle and unfortunately it doesn’t end up fitting around the logo. The logo itself is more of an oval than a circle so you have to actually measure the sides in order to get it right.

Lucky for you guys, I did all the boring measuring for you and came up with exact dimensions for both the cold tumblers and the hot travel mugs. So, let’s get down to the nitty gritty!

For the reusable cold tumblers set the WIDTH to 3.779 in and set the HEIGHT to 3.527 in.

If you’re using Design Space you just have to click the lock at the bottom left of the image to unlock it and then set the dimensions at the top of the screen.

  1. Click to unlock.

2. Set dimensions.

For the travel coffee cups you’ll need to set the WIDTH to 4.279 in and the HEIGHT to 3.994 in.ย 

That’s it. All the information you need to create correctly sized decals! Be sure to pin these graphics for reference. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy crafting, friends!

      These are the measurements for the starbucks hot and cold tumblers. I’m not sure they would fit anything else correctly.

      Hey! When you download the designs they should just be black and white. Are you clicking the download button or right clicking and saving the image?

    Do you save the images as a cut file or a print and cut file? Also your template upload as black but what if I want to do the outside circle one color and the inside circle a different color…is there a way to separate the elements? Thanks!!

    How do you get the circle decals to lay flat without a wrinkle in them around the edge?

      Since the decals aren’t perfect circle they wrap really nicely around the cups. I haven’t had any wrinkle so far.

    These decals are beautiful, thank you for sharing! I was wondering if there is a special setting I need to use while cutting the vinyl. I have an Cricut Air and I’m using Oracal 651. When cutting the letters, the inside parts of the R, B, etc get stuck in the vinyl as I’m weeding. Any tips you can offer?

    Hey Kayla! Can you make a “5th Grade Grad” or “5th Grade Grads Rock”? Also I’m using Silhouette and still ending up with quite a bit of space around the outside circle for the cold cups even with putting in the dimensions. Is it different for Silhouette vs. Cricut? Thanks!

    Quick Question:

    Does your page have a step by step on how to create a label using your blank decal? I am trying to create my own label with my profession ( SLP) and I am having trouble creating the cut and understanding if it needs to be flattened/attached/welded together.

    Thanks in advance!

      Hi! I don’t have a tutorial yet but once you type the text on the circle you’ll need to select both the text and the circle and then click the slice button.

      It works on all of my cups. Like I said, it is highly possible that they changed the logo size since the last time I bought them. Just measure the height and width of the new logo and go by that!
