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.

Does heat transfer paper work on mugs?

Let’s take the example of a sublimated ceramic mug. Your blank good cost average is $1.75. A 3” x 3” image costs 35 cents to produce including ink and paper. It takes approximately four minutes to produce your finished product so, with a labor rate of $15 per hour, you have $1 in labor for a total cost of $3.10.
What paper is used to print on mugs?
Mug printing requires a specialty paper known as sublimation paper. It has a coating that allows for ink absorption onto the material, such as your mug. It’s also important to use sublimation ink as well as polymer-coated mugs so the design transfers accurately.
