Can you personalize a coffee mug?
When you make your own coffee mug design, you create an end product that is uniquely yours. One of the best ways to design your own coffee mug is to professionally print one (or more) at a custom printing shop like Banana Print.
What do you write on a personalized mug?
Include a few special personal touches inside the mug such as an insider saying or even a few handmade hearts or stars. Nothing like a little unexpected surprise says, “personalized” so add an intimate saying or joke between the two of you inside or underneath the mug.
Can I sublimate any mug?
If the coffee mug is glazed ceramic you should be able to sublimation print without any coating at all. If the product that you want to print on is not ceramic, there are other techniques available, such as water-slide decal, ink transfer and many more.
What kind of paint will stay on ceramic mugs?
Acrylic paint is also suitable for most ceramic mugs. However, some acrylics are designed specifically for unglazed ceramics. Check the label before purchasing. After you paint your mug and allow it to dry, use a clear sealant to add shine and prevent the acrylic paint from cracking.
What do you need for mug printing?
To start printing on mugs, you need:
- Sublimation printer. One in A4 format will be more than enough, given the fact that its printing area is relatively small and you will amply cover it with that size.
- Sublimation ink.
- Sublimation paper.
- Heat resistant tape.
- Mug heat press.
How do you make a homemade coffee mug dishwasher safe?
This sets the design!
- Place mugs in a cold oven.
- Use a baking sheet covered with tin foil.
- Once mugs are in oven turn on to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

- Turn off and let cool.
Do Sharpie mugs wash off?
I can tell you from experience that a regular Sharpie, baked or unbaked, will just wash right off the mug. You HAVE TO use an oil-based paint Sharpie. This will help make your design permanent. After you’ve designed the mug in oil-based Sharpie, you’ll need to let the design dry for at least 24 hours.
How do you write on a mug without it washing off?
Bake your mug to set the paint. Place your mugs on a rimmed baking sheet (makes getting them in and out of the oven easier) and place them in a cold oven. Turn the oven on to 375 degrees and let it come to heat. Once preheated, let the mugs bake for 25 minutes.
Are Sharpie mugs safe to drink from?
It’s a fun and creative party activity that allows the imagination to run wild. Just grab a bunch of different colors and get started. The paint bakes into the ceramic, so the design won’t wash off, and they are perfectly safe to drink out of.
