Photo mugs for drinking coffee, tea & milk

Mugs printed with photos - also called photo mugs - are the world's most popular custom printed articles. Originally used to display pictures, modern photo mugs have evolved so as to allow epic phrases, quirky quotes and even photo collages on their surfaces. Photo mugs offer two basic ways of printing an image: either with a horizontal picture that takes up the entire mug surface (panoramic mug), or a portrait-oriented photo at the front.

Futher possibilities to personalise a photo mug are changing the background colour, choosing a matt finish or changing the orientation of the handle. Although most tea and coffee mugs are made for right handed users, personalised photo mugs are also available as left handed mugs.

Unlike random fashion trends, novelty mugs with photos have become an essential part of a stylished life in the strictest "dolce vita" sense. It's all about customising. As pop artist Andy Warhol said: "Art is what you can get away with".  Transform real life scenes into highly artistic picture-mugs to enjoy your favourite hot drink every morning: whether darjeeling tea, cappuccino coffee, hot chocolate or pumpkin soup.

Personalised photo mugs

A cosy breakfast accompanied by a personalised photo mug is a brilliant manner to start the day. Likewise, inspiring pictures help us connect with pleasant memories and positive thoughts to face our daily routine. There are several ways of presenting these images in a personalised mug, as for example:

  • panoramic photo mugs: with a long landscape-oriented photo;
  • heat changing magic mugs: in which the photo is displayed as soon as you pour in a hot liquid into them;
  • personalised travel mug: a thermal mug which doesn't leak, and perfect for carrying with you on a trip;
  • silver metalic mug: with a nice silvery coating;
  • personalised coloured mugs: which combine two different colours.

Photo mug printing with dye-sublimation technique

Printing your own mug online is as simple task. However, to reproduce the original colours in the best way possible, all photo mugs are produced with sublimation printing techniques and food-safe inks. Moreover, there is a choice of matte or glossy finish. Although they can be cleaned in the dishwasher, we warmly recommend to do this by hand to preserve the colours.

Novelty & name mugs

Funny quotes and quirky phrases printed on your novelty mugs manage to make you smile and get you into a good mood. Here are some good examples of these photo mugs:

  • "Coffee first. Schemes later"
  • "Decaffeinated coffee is the devil's blend"
  • "Coffee and love are best when they are hot."
  • "But first, coffee"
  • "You're cute and all, but I'm not sharing my coffee"
  • "Where there's tea, there is hope"
  • "Tea is the elixir of life"

A popular one for novelty mugs is the "I'd rather be... "phrase. I´d rather be fishing, reading, sleeping, playing golf, cycling, riding my motorbike or whatever your favourite hobby is. Of course, you can always go for the traditional "Keep calm and..." photo mugs.

Another form of personalised text mugs is the name mug. This is a useful choice in a family or in an office. Say there are some really beatiful mugs that officially belong to someone, but strangely disappear every few days. With named mugs (or simply adding the initials), the ownership becomes clear. Besides, they will make the kitchen more lively and colourful.

Design your own mug

Even if you're a real design muggle, with myphotobook UK you will learn how to design your own mug. It is all about finding the right picture and making sure it has enough resolution. However, since the printing surface of the photo mugs is limited, most pictures from social networks and smartphone captions will do. Once you upload the photo and decide how to orient it in space, you can edit it, crop it, add a graphic filter, insert cliparts, decorate it with a frame or change the background. Please remember to check the result in preview mode! There are two possibilities to design your own photo mugs: either online other using the download version of the software. Both tools are absolutely free, but in the download version you will be able to save projects on your computer.

Christmas mugs

Making Christmas mugs for all your family members can be a fast and classy solution for this year's Christmas presents. Pick a different picture for each person: one for grandma, another one for your uncle and maybe one for your girlfriend or boyfriend (only if they've really behaved this year).

Personalised children's mugs

Photo mugs make ideal back-to-school gifts, as well as birthday presents.
Create personalised childrens mugs with pictures of your child's favourite animal, superheros or actors. Custom printed articles are also a smart way to make them look after their own personal belongings.

Personalised weddings mugs

For a wedding present, you can make a couple of personalised wedding mugs: one with a picture of the bride and another one for the groom. "And they lived happily ever after" could be the custom text beside the pictures.

Fathers & Mothers Day mugs

Sometimes we forget about the oldest family members. And who will enjoy more a Father's or Mother's Day mug than grandad and grandma? Their favourite sayings or a the lyrics of a nice and well-known song will make them fall in love with the photo mug.

Order photo mugs & personalised photo gifts

Especially with photo mugs and personalised photo gifts, it works out better to make more copies of the same article. Unless the order is very big, you will only pay the delivery for one unit. Since the whole design process is performed online, it will only take a few days for your gifts to arrive. In the last steps of the online process, you will be required to give in your details, specify a delivery address and select a payment method. The order will be finally confirmed by e-mail.

With personalised photo gifts there is always a great variety of choices for making a present for  Valentine's Day, a housewarming party, the christening of a baby, birthdays and anniversaries. Each gift can be adapted to suit the occasion, style and personal preferences.
