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.

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.
Does HTV stay on mugs?
Turns out HTV works great on ceramic mugs too! I wouldn’t put it through a dishwasher, but it will definitely hold up to a handwashing.

Should mugs be stored upside down?
Storing them upside-down likely does keep the inside a bit cleaner, but if you use and wash them regularly, dust won’t really accumulate. And if you dry the inside well, moisture won’t get trapped.
What side do you put a decal on a mug?
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 keep a vinyl record straight on a mug?
The slight curve in the vinyl, the water line, and the snips in the transfer tape are all essential to helping put the vinyl on the cup straight. Burnish the vinyl onto the tumbler and then peel away the transfer tape. You can replace that insert if you have it, leave it out, or customize it however you’d like.
