More Tips on Designing Coffee Mugs

Before you order your coffee mug, take the time to consider what you want it to look like. A funny collage could be great for a cat mug, while your dog mug would look great with fun illustrations like paw prints. The choice is up to you to decide what will look best, whether you’re creating a coffee mug for home or one you can give to loved ones. Decide if there’s a favorite photo of your cat or dog that you want to add as the focal point of the mug, or create a fun photo collage with four photos or more. 

Make sure your custom mug is also something you’ll want to use often. If you don’t drink coffee much, a standard ceramic mug can still be great for tea or other hot beverages. If you’re an espresso addict, a tall latte mug or standard latte mug would be the best option to keep on hand for cappuccinos, home-made lattes and more. If you’re always on the go, a travel coffee mug will be your best friend to help prevent spills and accidents.
