Coffee Mug Printing
The perfect housewarming gift, or a little something to say “good luck” on their first day at their new job, personalised coffee mugs are not only useful but personal too. You can have whatever you like printed on the mug, from an inspirational quote to the recipient’s name, a funny photograph or even your very own design.
Simply design your mug in our easy-to-use software or send your ready-to-print artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do the rest!
We’ll print your mug, wrap it carefully and place it in a box so it’s safe and ready to be collected. If you don’t have time, we can have your order delivered to you (at an extra cost).
Feeling a little daunted by the idea of designing something on your own? Don’t worry, make an appointment with one of our designers (call: 021 469 1978) and we’ll help you make your gift idea an exciting reality.

Q&A with Bramdon Adams
- Printing Specialist
What kind of printing process do you use?
I use dye sublimation printing.
What does sublimation mean?
Sublimation occurs when a substance is modified from a solid to a gas state without going through a liquid phase.
What is sublimation printing?
Basically, it’s a heat-transfer process.
But, for the techies:
- I print your image in reverse on special paper – the printing dye is heated in our sublimation printer until it turns into a gas, which then diffuses onto the paper and solidifies.
- I then place the reversed image onto the surface of the mug and heat to temperatures of up to 400 °C.
- Once again, the dye turns into gas and permeates the actual surface of the mug. It then solidifies, becoming permanently embedded in your mug.
All of our mugs are coated with a polymer, making the image transfer process possible.
How do I take care of my customized mug?
All of our mugs are dishwasher safe, however we do not recommend leaving them in the sun for long periods of time, as the image might fade.
