What Will My Photo Mug Actually Look Like?

Our strong ceramic builders’ mugs are bold white, giving a crisp, sharp print. Your photos or designs cover the full height and wrap around the full body of the printed mug for maximum impact, meeting all the way to the handle at the back. Your cupboard will never be dull again, once your custom mug is in there.

Whether you’re a tea buff, coffee connoisseur or prefer to swig your soup, this builders mug is the ideal way to enjoy your hot drinks. Buy the family a collection of personalised mugs, each personalised with text describing how they take their tea/coffee, for example ‘Dad: Milk, No Sugar’. This way there’s no excuse not to the make the perfect cuppa. Our photo collage mugs are also a handy addition to your office kitchen to keep everyone organised and stop colleagues using your personal mug.

Make a Collage

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 vacuum printing

Your photos are printed onto heat transfer paper using the most up to date printing equipment. This is then wrapped around the body of your personalised photo mug, before being fixed in place. Using 3D sublimation vacuum heat transfer printing techniques, your designs are permanently bonded to the material of the builder's mug. This ensures a long lasting, scratch resistant print.

Great tips for your design

If your photo has a light, solid colour background, there can be slight unavoidable fading around the edges. For patterns that have a white background, just ensure that it’s brilliant white and not an off-white, to ensure you get the cleanest print.

Give the gift of nostalgia with an old family photo guaranteed to bring back memories or make everyone laugh. Go one step further and design a photo collage mug, printing a variety of old snaps that your grandparents would love to see again.

Does your friendship group have unusual nick-names for each other? Make your own mugs with inside jokes printed onto them; a great way to give a truly bespoke gift. It’s not just names that make your printed mugs personalised though. Grab a candid photo of their face, or a cool colourful image of your friends’ star signs and give them their very own custom-made zodiac mugs.

Give family living abroad a taste of the UK or London. Personalised mugs printed with your fun travel snaps outside famous landmarks is a nice touch and makes the collage mug a memento for those who don’t see you often.
