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.
How do you make a homemade coffee mug dishwasher safe?
This sets the design!

How do you make a personalized coffee mug with a Sharpie?
DIY Personalized Sharpie Mugs
- Wash your mugs thoroughly with soap and water. Get all the grime and dust off to ensure the markers stick to the mugs well.
- Once the mugs are clean, it’s time to decorate! Pick your favorite colors of Sharpies and go to work.
- Bake the mugs in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
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.
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.
Can you use regular Sharpies on coffee mugs?
Regular Sharpies don’t work! Start creating your design on your mug. You can use ANY Sharpie paint pen color that will show up on your mug, but some colors will get darker after baking. To clean up your design you can scratch paint off with your nail or a needle.
