  • printed mugs?

    ahhh, does anyone know any good places to get mugs printed? i have a few designs that i would like to pop onto mugs... the only sites i can find offer like a minimum of 100 at a stupid price, all the same. or the other extreme about £8 for one at places like photobox etc. i want a few done, but definately not 100, arrrhhhh!

    if anyone could help that would be great

    I met a lady at a craft fair who does printed mugs, photos on mugs etc. I will look up her business card and see if she has an email address or website.

      My husband got me and my car put on a mug from someone on ebay, for about a fiver. Went to someone else and had a couple of our dogs done and they came out terrible, dark and not good at all, for about the same price. I'll try and track the name of the good one for you if you'd like, unless you're not too keen on ebay?

        Snappy snaps are fab.

              I also do mugs (www.freshlookgifts.co.uk and http://shop.ebay.co.uk/merchant/freshlookgifts).

              My standard price is £6.99 including delivery (on the main website) - no minimum order. They're good quality European-made mugs with dishwasher proof coating.

              Always happy to do a deal for fellow crafters too! Drop me a PM if you're still after some!!

                Hi,

                I've also been thinking about this for absolutely ages.

                I'd really like to put some of my art on mugs & beer glasses.

                Like everything the problem is trying to find mug printing at a price to then go on and sell the items. Even if minimum order is 100 to get a price I can reasonably sell a mug on a craft stall at usually involves a minimum order of more like 1000!!

                How much were you thinking of paying. I'm just wondering what anyone thinks someone might pay for a mug with some art on? I was guessing like at most £5ish?

                I understand that for one off personalised items then people might pay a bit more... like for the ones in the ebay shop above. If I can ask how do you do them? I looked into getting a mug printing machine but it looked like that would cost £400ish....

                I wonder if there is some transfers or something that would do it?

                Good luck and if you find anywhere please please let me know!!

                  Hello!

                  I do my mugs with a process called dye sublimation. You don't have to have a mug printing machine (there are also mug wraps which are cheaper and you can do in oven) although it can be easier if you're doing quite a few mugs at a time. Doing a mug with a press takes about 2-3 minutes, but doing in oven takes about 15-20 minutes (although you can do up to 8 at a time, depending on size of your oven!).

                  You also need a dedicated printer (has to be certain type) which uses special 'dye sublimation ink'. You print onto sublimation paper, wrap it around the mug then heat press is (either in a machine or with a wrap in oven). The mugs have to have a special polymer coating, so you need to get them from a spe******t dye sublimation supplier - 99p mugs from Asda won't do the job!

                  There's cheaper transfer paper around that ISN'T dye sublimation paper (transfer paper from supermarkets, for example), but it'll wear off the mug very quickly. The way dye sub works is that the heat opens up the pores in the mug's polymer coating, then the dye from the sublimation ink enters the pores, which close again when the mug cools - so it's the most permament type of mug printing you can do.

                  Hope that helps!!

                    I looked into putting photos of my alpacas onto mugs in the summer & the 2 companies I found with the best prices were
                    muglamania.com - the least quanity they would print is 24
                    colour change £5.30 + £12 p&p
                    plain £4.50 + £12 p&p
                    &
                    monster mugs - the colour change start at 72 mugs
                    plain £5.70 including all orientation & p&p in the UK

                    Didn't go ahead with either though, we weren't convinced that people would buy them with alpacas on.

                    Really like the wow mugs, I have a Dr Who one, use it every day!

                    Hope this helps

                      I found the business card, the lady has an email address but no website.

                      If you are interested pm me and I will let you have her email. I don't know if she will be able to help you though.

                        hello everyone. thanks so much for your replies. i found somewhere that does a kind of transfer paper, a decal, you print onto it, apply it, pop it in the oven for a few mins. after all that it becomes dishwasher proof etc. going to have a go at that... if it's so fiddly (which it probably will be!!) i'll see about getting someone to print them for me. thanks again! .

                          Ooh, that just reminded me of this paper from Crafty Computer Paper:
                          http://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk...-paper_256.htm

                          Not sure if this is what you're using, but for anyone else who might be looking .... it's a transfer paper that you can use with a laser printer / photocopier along with a laminating machine that transfers onto a mug (in oven) and is apparently dishwasher proof!

                          Haven't tried it personally and the instructions DO look fiddly but I'm sure it's something you'd get used to! Single sheets are £2.99 each (remember you'll only use one third of a sheet per mug) but cheaper if you buy more.

                          Hope it helps someone!
