How do you keep design on a mug?
How can I keep the decoration on my coffee mug from fading or chipping away? The best way to protect the life of your mug is by hand-washing it, regardless of whether it’s technically safe for the dishwasher. The extreme temperatures of dishwashers have been known to cause imprints to fade or chip away prematurely.
How do you make a homemade coffee mug dishwasher safe?

Does heat transfer paper work on mugs?
Heat transfers can be printed onto mugs, plates, tiles, mouse pads, ceramics, metals, glass and wood. When printing shirts, mouse pads or almost any light color fabric material you would typically print with ink-jet, color copier/laser transfers or plastisol heat transfers.
Can you drill a hole in a ceramic mug?
Drill for Drainage To do this, place a small scrap of wood under the teacup base, making sure the teacup rests on the wood. Use a tungsten-tipped drill bit and wear safety goggles when drilling. Ceramic and porcelain can easily shatter, so use a slow drill speed and very little pressure.
What kind of drill bit do you use for ceramic?
Ceramic tile can be drilled with a carbide bit, while glass and porcelain call for a diamond-tipped bit. While that sounds expensive, a ¼ inch diamond tipped tip costs under $20, and a carbide bit of the same size can be had for less than $10. When in doubt, buy the diamond bit. It will drill any type of tile.
Can you drill a hole in a mug?
But if you are using the mugs for other plants, you’ll need to drill a hole. Spray the area you are going to drill with water. Using a glass or diamond tip bit, start at an angle and make a little notch in the center of the bottom of the mug. Spray the area again with water then continue until you have your hole.
Which side of a mug do you put a decal on?
The general rule is the coffee mug decal should be facing outward while the person is holding the mug in their dominate hand. Not only does this allow the logo to be seen by others while you’re drinking out of the mug, but it places the vinyl decal on the opposite side of where you’ll be placing your mouth.

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.
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.
