How do you keep design on a mug?
How can I keep the decoration on my coffee mug from fading or chipping away?

The extreme temperatures of dishwashers have been known to cause imprints to fade or chip away prematurely.
Can you print inside a mug?
Most companies who print on the inside of mugs use the water based transfer system (a bit like the old Airfix stickers) to print inside. There are two companies working together on the possibility of printing inside the mug, but there are so many hurdles to over come that I do not expect it to be for a few years.
Where should the design be on a mug?
