What Will My Heat Sensitive Mug Actually Look Like?

Well, it arrives cold so all you’ll see at first glance is a dark surface – either blue or black depending on your base colour choice. You will also be able to see the outline of the design underneath. The heat activation occurs on the body of the personalised mug, so your handles will remain either blue or black. Just put the kettle on, fill your mug with hot water, and the black or blue base colour will disappear, revealing your personalised design underneath. Tada!

Who Would Love a Heat Sensitive Mug Personalised for them?

Girlfriends, fiancés, dads, children...we think the custom heat and reveal mug is for everybody. They make a great Mother’s Day gift when personalised with a golden oldie photograph of an old-school grinning face dug out from the attic. Or for grandparents, customise the magic mug with a photo collage to put a smile on their face.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Heat reactive

We print your images or text onto a special layer that reacts to the hot liquid inside the heat photo mug, colour changing from your chosen base colour to white, which reveals your design. Your personalised heat and reveal mugs are handmade to order by our printing experts in London, UK.

Please note: Depending on your design you may be able to see part of the image show through the coating. We have shown this within the images.

Photo wrapping

Your chosen photos or design wrap around the body of the mug all the way to the handle, and cover the full height, leaving almost no white space, so this is great for full impact designs. If you’re looking to print a special message, remember to start it from the bottom, as the photo reveal begins here.

It’s time to get creative and let your imagination run free! Personalised heat sensitive mugs make brilliant baby shower favours as you can keep the sex of the baby a secret until the final moment when you pour your guests a cup of tea with a temperature changing heat cup! Simply print your message in reverse order to reveal your big news, i.e. ‘Girl A It’s’ or ‘Boy A It’s’ so the message starts at the bottom of your custom-made heat change mug. This idea also works for mums-to-be; break the wonderful pregnancy news to your partner in a cute and unique way by printing the baby scan or a sweet message.

Our custom heat changing mugs are so clever and help you tell something in a bespoke way. For a truly unique wedding proposal, print the big question onto a heat sensitive mug for a cup of tea that won’t ever be forgotten!
