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.
Just follow these simple steps.
- Step 1: Wash your mug and dry it with a soft lint-free cloth.
- Step 2: Use the pens to draw and write anything you like!
- Step 3: Bake your mug in a non-preheated oven at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Allow it to cool in the oven to prevent cracking, then remove and it’s ready to use!
Is selling coffee mugs profitable?
On average, they sell for less than $20 including shipping and considering that the cost of a mug is usually under $1 there is the potential to make a profit on most mugs. However, some sell for hundreds of dollars, which makes the investment of the fifty cents or a dollar it costs to buy a mug worth the risk.
