We can provide creative graphics services for originating your design or you can create and send your own, simply send your artwork by email or post as a vector .pdf or as a 350 pixel per inch .jpg file. Artwork can range from precise computer generated designs, texts, lettering and names lists, to pen and ink hand produced drawings, coats of arms, monochrome and full four colour process prints from photographs, as well as historical texts. The images can be printed using spot colours or 4 colour process - the latter being the best for paintings and photographic work. We can also personalise mugs with individual names and put 22 ct gold banding on the rims of mugs.
We aim to give you the best service possible and are always pleased to give explanations and technical advice about the mug printing process. Most commissions require some talking through, so phone 01777 838391 for guidance and how to download a price list and we will be delighted to help.Or email with your artwork and mug style for a quote.
The addition of an historical or explanatory text to the reverse or the base of the mug is the perfect way to perpetuate the memory of an event or anniversary.
If the mug artwork design is produced by an artist the addition of a backstamp print on the mug base gives that extra professional look and also promotes their name and reputation.
