Welcome to Mug Shop!


If you’ve always wanted to understand how mugs are printed then you’re in the right place. Here we’ve put together videos showing each available printed method for creating our logo mugs.

They say a picture speaks a thousand words, well a video speaks a million. These narrated clips explain, in detail, just how mug printing works.

From direct screen printing right up to the more modern digital printing, we’ve got all bases covered.

Direct Screen Printing on Mugs

This is the most popular method of mug printing. For more simple designs printed onto our standard range of mugs, this is usually how your artwork will be applied.

Transfer Printed Mugs

Transfer printing is a form of mug printing used for more complex prints. It’s often used where print registration is tight, or on mugs that are of a complicated shape. Transfer printing is hand-applied. It’s a highly-skilled process that can be time-consuming but the end result is fabulous!

Digital Printing on Mugs

Digital printing is available on certain mug shapes. The idea being to use modern, digital print processes to replicate complex colours or designs. It’s used on white mugs and is particular useful when your artwork isn’t suitable for screen printing.
