Mug Printing Your Custom Printed Mugs

Custom Mug Printing

Promo is a funny business. Not “ha ha” funny but more “Ha” funny with a capital “H” and and extended “aaa”. The reason for that is because just when you think you know it all you find out that there are still things that you did not know. With custom mug printing it is not a laughing matter. More on that later.

After all with tens of thousands of products how could you possible know everything there is to know about promotional products. You would have to be some kind of professor or sage to know absolutely everything. Even though I must admit I have come across some people in the industry that know a lot about the subject.

Take custom mug printing and all in entails. One would think that it is a simple concept with simple solutions. In some cases it may very well be a simple solution. Maybe the customer is using a simple can mug, one of the most common coffee mugs on the market. Then they want to print a one colour print on the front of the mug.

You see something like that is the easiest think in the world to achieve. It is such a simple task that you would expect almost anyone in the corporate gifts industry to success. That would be a fair call because in the community of custom mug printing it really is a task without major complications

 Mug Printing Methods

There are indeed a number of mug printing methods available that are worthwhile knowing about if you plan on doing some mug printing of your own. You see mug printing, whilst an art in itself, is not that complicated. If fact if you know what you’re dealing with it can be, on the one hand, quite simple, and on the other hand also invigorating. The most important thing to know about custom mug printing before you embark on a mug printing adventure is:

  • What kind of mug do you need. Simple can mug or a flare mug etc.
  • The logo that you want to print on the coffee mug.
  • What you want to achieve with your logo print on the mug.

Once all of the above is understood then it becomes all the more easier to understand what needs to be and done how.

Long Logos

Take long logos. Sometimes companies either have a really long logo which can simply be printed straight onto the coffee mug. With this kind of logo a simple pad print just won’t work. So what do you do? You go for the wrap around print. With the wrap around print you are basically able to print a logo or message right around the mug. When you first see it you will wonder how it was ever possible. But when you look at how it is done the simplicity becomes apparent and you understand how if was possible to achieve such a print on a coffee mug.

 Colourful Logos or Photos

Some times people have really colourful logos that they want to print or a photo. Whilst you might think that it is the same method for both it really isn’t. If you want to print a colourful logo or a logo with a gradient on a promotional coffee mug then you need to use sublimation print. Sublimation print pretty much uses a digital printer to print the logo.

If you are looking to print a photo on a mug then it is literally called a “photo mug”. Whilst a photo mug also uses a digital printer of sorts it is a different method. That is because printing a photo requires more sophistication than just printing a few colours.

So when you delve into the world of custom mug printing it is important to understand that there are different mug printing methods. These methods are determines by what you want and how you expect to achieve it. Once you understand this the simple promotional mug or coffee mug will never be the same again.

Personalised Travel Mugs for Summer

When people think travel mugs they often think a warm cup of coffee sitting in a lodge on some far flung mountain side. I bet that when they think travel mugs all they think about is cold weather and somewhere hiding from the elements trying to stay warm. Whilst it might be true some times of the year it is not true all the time. That’s why personalised travel mugs much so much sense.

Indeed a travel mug is useful in all sort of scenarios and in all sorts of setting. If you look hard enough you will see as many travel mugs when you go to the beach as you do when you go to skiing at Thredbo.

Travel mugs for all beverages

The truth is that travel mugs are great for all sorts of beverages. The point about a travel mug is that you can take it with you wherever you go so whether you put something warm in it or something cold it entirely up to you. Of course you would want to make sure you pick the travel mug that is most suited for the kind of beverage you would most like to drink.

When drinking hot beverages like tea or coffee then sometimes it is best to consider a double walled mug. It will keep the drink warmer, longer and will be kinder to your hands. You might even want to consider a thermos. This is where personalised travel mugs come in handy.

So now that we agree that a travel mug is good for hot and cold weather, it might be to make the point of how good personalised travel mugs would be for your summer promotion. Personalised travel mugs are indeed a great summer promotional gift. As I said previously people are just inclined to take them to the beach as they are to the snow. There is nothing better then have a nice cold drink to keep you hydrated whilst sun baking on the beach in the sun.

Enjoy the convenience of have your own drink

There is nothing worse then having to wait in that canteen line trying to buy a drink. Firstly you are sure to be over paying for it and how want to wait in the line while some kids tries to decide between a sausage roll or a bag of chips. Why not take both kid and be done with it.

That is why companies have long understood the value of adding a personalised travel mug to their promotional campaign. As far as promotional products go the travel mug is a great addition to any marketing campaign. The added benefit is that you know you are helping out your customers by keeping then nice and cool in the sun, whilst they are having fun, with everyone.
